GBP denounces the Mayweather Camp Accusations of Pacquiao and calls it "idiotic", what are your thoughts?
This is a statement by GBP highly rank representative Richard Schaefer: "We have never accused Pacquiao of anything nor will we. We don't control what Floyd Sr. says, so we have nothing to do with that. We are going to continue to maintain - innocent until proven guilty. I believe in that. We're not accusing anybody of anything. Manny Pacquiao is a great fighter, a great athlete, a pound for pound king and innocent until proven guilty. I never have and never will accuse Pacquiao. People should just move off that and move on," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com. "I think the comments are wrong that he's [Mayweather Sr.] making. He should move on too. I don't control what other people say. I don't control what Arum says, or what Mayweather says. I only control what I say, and I say innocent until proven guilty. The comments that Mayweather Sr. is making are idiotic. There is only one word - idiotic." Based on his actions, Mayweather Sr. is not intimidated by the pending lawsuit. Both Arum and Schaefer are in agreement - Mayweather Sr. [or anyone else] should face the music for these kind of comments. "Everyone is held accountable for the comments they make. I think comments like that are wrong. If someone was making comments like that about a fighter who was under contract with Golden Boy, I would be p****d off too. We have a promotional piece of Manny Pacquiao and I think Manny is a great fighter. People should just move on." http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=25668 @ John B and Dikkis, I already added the link. Sorry I forgot. :-) In case it doesn't work here is the link again: http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=25668 I gave everyone thumbs up, some I agree, some I dont, but thanks for your time! :-)

"It's not a steroid. It's something from the Philippines. Something they used in the army. When you hit the guy with a .45 or a .38 and they keep coming after they got shot. Whatever it is, it has to be something strong for you to keep coming forward after you got shot." - Mayweather Sr... More

This is the right thing to do for GBP to distance themselves from the accusations and they will probably use this statement in court to defend themselves since Richard Schaefer is included in the defamation suit... More

pacquiao was too good that they thought he was not human.

There is "Freedom of Speech" a completely American concept, and then there is "Slander" a concept that is familiar to us all. Schaefer is doing what any sane boxing promoter would do, positioning himself and his company to do business with one of the biggest draws in the boxing game. Whether Mayweather Sr. is an... More

They are trying to avoid a lawsuit and absolutely nothing more. If Pacquiao hadn't sued Mayweather GBP would have kept on backing him up silently and not caring. Only now post lawsuit do they say something and that is telling.

Every time Pacquiao fights Golden Boy gets a cut. They would be stupid to burn him like that.

Squid tactics I would say. GBP has been critical of the Pacman, including the lovable Oscar. Well, truth to tell, Mayweather Sr. sucks. Good luck to you.

Personally I think that the whole steriod fiasco is complete and utter bullshit, I've stayed out of the conversation because I didn't want to add fuel to the fire and it has given me a long time to think about it and my conclusion is that this really was Mayweather's way out of the fight. I mean, the hypocrisy of... More

ali's brand of trash talkin is totally different from floyd's.... ali did it to promote his fights while floyd does it to harrass an opponent, he do it to gain advantage... but what they did to manny is slanderous, pretty personal...jealousy and envy really did eat their hearts out.... they should be jailed....
