One of the most important men in boxing Top Rank CEO Bob Arum says he thinks working with 50 Cent is a good thing for boxers in this clip. In a separate interview with ESPN this week Arum also claims Floyd Mayweather turned down major money to fight Manny Pacquiao:
“We had an offer, a legitimate offer on the table for 180 million dollars and people due to fight and had a big upside of 180 for the two fight camps. That’s when he said 55-45 which would’ve given Mayweather 100 million. (Pacquiao) would’ve ended up with 80 million and that’s still a lot of money right? But Mayweather will not fight him.”
