    And in before the following comments:

    1) Further proof that the boxing model doesn't work...boxing should adopt the UFC model

    2) You see, Manny is scared of Floyd.

    3) Mayweather made this happen...it's his fault the negotiations failed.

    4) Bob Arum is killing boxing.

    That sucks. I doubt Floyd would have taken the fight anyways but at least there were better options at GB.

    This post is a testament to Floyd's greatness.

    Why can't the fight still be made? Because arum is too mean for Floyd?

    Not a real issue

    On a serious note...hopefully DLH will be able to broker some sort of peace...

    Highly unlikely...but one can hope.

    The boxing model? The UFC model?

    The entire infrastructure is broken and corrupt. Even the most despicable and disgusting "business" practices are commonplace in this sad dying sport.

    It's disgraceful that this is even news.

    lol come on now.

    The one roadblock to the fight Manny so badly wants has been Top Rank and has been Top Rank for years.

    Enjoy your Manny vs Alvarado and Pac vs Marquez 9. Maybe we can see that Brandon Rios rematch!

    Negotiations and compromises are a two way street...the onus doesn't lie completely 100 percent on Arum. Both can make concessions.

    Why is there a roadblock? Give me a legit answer instead of excuses? Refusing to work with someone when you are fighting the fighter not the promoter when the fighter had said he is willing to take all the drug test and take less than 45-55 split?

    "But but arum is just too controlling and mean to work with"
