Floyd Mayweather Jr spoke to Miami press yesterday where he was coaching a charity basketball game. Ladbrokes 8/11 favourite was asked when he would meet Manny Pacquiao following news of another stall in the process. He told the Associated Press: “I’m not interested in rushing to do anything,” adding “I’m really not thinking about boxing right now.” “I’m just relaxing. I fought about 60 days ago, so I’m just enjoying myself, enjoying life, enjoying my family and enjoying my vacation.” It seems Mayweather is enjoying just about everything except entering into talks to arrange the most eagerly anticipated fight this century. Top Rank who promote Pacquiao have seen their 17 July deadline pass with no word from Mayweather and are now looking at other options, Miquel Cotto and Antonio Margarito are possibles for Pacquiao’s next fight on November 13. Bob Arum believes the reason for Mayweather’s reluctance to make a commitment is due to the impending trial of his uncle and long-time trainer Roger Mayweather. Roger Mayweather makes his court appearance in August charged with assault following an altercation with a female boxer last year.
