Bob Arum Says Floyd Mayweather Jr. Turned Down $65 Million to Fight Manny Pacquiao

$65 million would be enough to talk anybody into just about anything.

That sum, though, apparently isn't enough to convince Floyd Maywearther Jr. to fight Manny Pacquiao, according to Bob Arum.

Mayweather received such an offer, but turned it down. Arum believes that means only one thing: He has no interest in stepping into a ring with Pacquiao. Mayweather, Arum says, knows boxing very well, and knows how much trouble he would be in against Pac-Man.

He also went on to suggest that you may as well add a loss to Mayweather's career record, given how he's been ducking the bout.

See all that he had to say in the video below.
