Mayweather vs Merchant Bout Falls Through

Las Vegas, NV 24 Jan 2012

Sources close to the Floyd Mayweather camp leaked news today that negotiations have broken down for a May 5 bout with 80-year-old HBO boxing analyst Larry Merchant for Mayweather's unified Cheap Shot title. Mayweather, coming off consecutive beatings of the mother of his children and the hapless Victor Ortiz, is said to have torpedoed the deal when he realized that to fight Merchant would invalidate his claim that Merchant cannot be a boxing expert because he's never been in a fight before.

Merchant, for his part, is claiming victory. "Fifty years ago I would have kicked his ass," he said. "Today he's running from me faster than you can say Pacquiao. I'll give him this, however: he is a man of conviction."
