“Here are the facts. Al Haymon, Richard Schaefer and myself speak to each other on a regular basis and the truth is no negotiations have ever taken place nor was there ever a deal agreed upon by Team Mayweather or Floyd Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao on November 13. Either Ross Greenburg or Bob Arum is not telling the truth, but history tells us who is lying, ” says Mayweather advisor Leonard Ellerbe.
We know Ross Greenburg wants to make the fight, I have seen and heard him say it with my own eyes and ears. He wasn’t pretending or bluffing. Ross Greenburg, like just about everyone else, wants the fight to be made now.
So going by Ellerbe’s words above, the only feasible explanation is that Al Haymon was pretending and posturing to negotiate with Greenburg the whole time, while maintaining his real agenda which is to kill the Pacquiao-Floyd fight and preserve Mayweather’s undefeated record so they can keep perpetuating and choreographing the manufactured career of Floyd Mayweather.
Here is what Haymon’s associate George Peterson said back on December 2, 2009, “It isn’t gonna happen. Some fights aren’t mean to be made. Mayweather doesn’t want to lose that 0.”
Peterson, as you should know by now, works together with Haymon in guiding the career of Paul “The Punisher” Williams.
I believe Golden Boy now actually wants to make the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight happen. Because the above press release of Ellerbe’s statement did not come from Golden Boy headquarters this time, like they all did back in January. This time only Ellerbe is the only one speaking on behalf of Team Mayweather.
If you remember, in January, Golden Boy’s representatives Schaefer and Oscar De La Hoya were clearly supportive of the agenda to kill the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight, but this time they are strangely silent. Just like you and I and everybody else, they want the fight, people!
I believe it’s all on Haymon and Floyd and their useful idiot Ellerbe. They are the three people who are preventing the biggest event in boxing history from happening.
One has to wonder what Al Haymon would say to defend himself. But fat chance on that happening because Haymon never speaks to the media. Hmmmm.
