"I advised him to take it. If he had, he would have had been one of the only guys to fight on HBO three times in a year, and he would have made a lot of money. Now, they are basically saying to him, ‘OK, see you next year,’ and they’ll find someone else to take the fight, probably for less." --Manager Mike Criscio on Alfredo Angulo recently turning down a $750,000 payday for an HBO fight.

From Kevin Iole at Yahoo! Sports: "HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg released a four-paragraph, five-sentence statement Monday which cast doubt upon the veracity of Floyd Mayweather Jr.; Mayweather’s best friend, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe; Golden Boy Promotions president Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer and which forever eliminated any doubt about Mayweather’s intention: He’s ducking Manny Pacquiao. "There can be no other rational explanation." The article is fairly scathing and presents an extremely valid and legitimate case that Floyd Mayweather is flat-out ducking Manny Pacquiao. Kevin Iole has been fair over the last year or so about both fights, and this is the first time he's written something that really goes to bat for one man over the other. Think of it what you will, but I thought it was a very interesting read, and frankly, pretty persuasive. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)
