Bob Arum, Manny Pacquiao’s promoter, slammed Floyd Mayweather in an interview last week. When asked about the Mayweather’s demands to fight Pacquiao, Arum said Mayweather’s tactics are similar to those used by Adolf Hitler.

Per The Sweet Science:

This is like a tactic, I’m not equating the politics, it’s like Hitler. Before the Second World War, ‘give me Czechosolovakia, 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.

 

That’s the truth. You do something like that, that’s the tactic. You bully, you bully, you bully…finally the guy says, ‘Enough,’ and he says, ‘See, you don’t want to fight me.’

You can say what you want about Mayweather’s negotiating tactics, but comparing them to the tactics of Hitler is an indefensible analogy. Even though Arum wasn’t equating Mayweather the person with Hitler the person, there’s no real justification for bringing up the Nazi leader as a point of comparison.

    No. There will be no one like Floyd Mayweather Jr.

    Yes he isn’t hitler, but at least Hitler never ducked anyone. He fought the british, americans, french, russians, Jew rebels, everyone. Floyd ducked who? Margarito, then Pacquiao. Who’s next? Probably Amir Khan.

    The only Mayweather that I ha e respect for is Roger Mayweather for grabbing his balls and fighting Julio Cesar Chavez when Chavez was in his prime. Not once but he fought him twice. Even though he lost, he grabbed his nuts. That to me is legendary. This little chicken sh*t nephew, hes just riding on his uncles name. freakin coward.
