Things Which Don’t Shock Me

But do appall:

“And let’s say that Pacquiao-Mayweather goes the Lennox Lewis-Riddick Bowe route, Arum says, “Well, there’s Shane Mosley. Shane is a wonderful fighter and I know Manny wants to fight him.. There’s Antonio Margarito, which is a real good challenge. Margarito’s going to be on the undercard on March 13th. So I mean Manny has a lot of options.”

– From Maxboxing

This is what I was afraid of when Margarito was positioned under Pacquiao on the 13th, and frankly what I think has a very good chance of happening given that Shane can drive up his price by cross-negotiating with Mayweather and Pacquiao’s camps both while Margarito can be had cheap given his lack of options. It’s easy to say that the most money will still be in Pacquiao-Mayweather so that fight has the best chance of happening, and that may well be true. But it was also true a month ago, and well….

  1. Wow, somehow I didn’t even connect the dots that Margs was put on the undercard to setup the possibility of a fight with Pacquiao. I’m going to puke.
