While pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao trains in the Philippines for his May 7 Showtime PPV fight against Shane Mosley, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is always part of the conversation.

Pacquiao-Mayweather is the fight that sports fans around the world would love to see, and it has been that way for a couple of years now.

“We went through negotiations with Mayweather, nobody really knew about it,” Arum was quoted as saying during his session with the reporters. “Some group came in and they wanted to put [the fight] on in a particular country [widely believed to be South Africa], and Mayweather asked for a number that was so high, it indicated that he didn’t want to fight.

“Take a guess at the number that he asked for, for himself? One-hundred. That’s right, $100 million. … Who’s going to pay him $100 million? I mean, unless Manny Pacquiao fights for nothing, how can you do the fight? [Mayweather] can’t say no, he doesn’t want the fight, so you price yourself out.”
