Manny Pacquiao’s promoter says Floyd Mayweather is ‘like Hitler’

Speaking Friday to TheSweetScience.com’s Michael Woods, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum compared Floyd Mayweather to Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler.

Although rumors have surfaced that Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally throw fists in September, finances and drug testing protocols have long been roadblocks to cementing an absurdly lucrative clash between the legendary pugilists.

Unsurprisingly, Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) recently added that he refuses to negotiate with the team of Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KOs) and Arum.

“This is like a tactic, I’m not equating the politics, it’s like Hitler,” said Arum, 82, a corruptible weasel who acknowledged during a 2000 federal trial that he bribed the International Boxing Federation (IBF) to attain a higher ranking for one of his fighters.

“Before the Second World War, ‘give me Czechoslovakia, there’ll be peace,’ and this and that...and (Neville) Chamberlain (then UK Prime Minister) kept appeasing, kept appeasing…was there ever going to be peace? No. No. It’s not going to get anybody closer to that fight.”

In January, the WBC installed Pacquiao as the top contender for Mayweather’s welterweight belt.

As the reigning pound-for-pound king, Mayweather can face any opponent on May 3.

However, following the springtime bout, “Pretty Boy” may be obligated to battle Pacquiao or possibly be forced to relinquish the crown.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao is slated to fight Timothy Bradley on April 12.

“The Fighting Pride of the Philippines” earned a lopsided unanimous decision over Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios to capture the WBO international welterweight title in November.

Displaying elite footwork and the uncanny ability to deliver punches from all angles, Pacquiao peppered the 27-year-old Rios (31-2-1, 23 KOs) with brilliant combinations that left “Bam Bam” bruised, cut and swollen.

Although a bit more cautious and reserved, Pacquiao remains an overwhelming force in the squared circle.

Comparatively, a defensive virtuoso defying Father Time with an incredible work ethic, Mayweather seems destined to equal Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 mark and retire as an unbeaten champion.

If Mayweather and Pacquiao both prevail in their upcoming contests, boxing fans may finally see a $200 million fistfight.

Unfortunately, if Bob Arum keeps “equating the politics,” Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will never settle their differences like competitors.
