    Been reading this for weeks now after the initial 110 mil they uped it by 10. Take note this is only the venue offer or what they call the site fee. In the inital talks years ago jones offered 50 million but vegas topped it. While its more than twice the money, the perception is vegas will top it. Of course everyone looking to profit would love a bidding war, but with each offer comes the possibility of busting a potential deal. Things get problematic as promototers maneuver to instegate more intrest. I wouldnt be supprised to see jones with inversor support throw down an offer. I also wouldnt be supprised to hear rumors that the offer is a fabracation dreamed up by promoters either to get vegas to up thier site fee.

    Floyd will never ever fight out of Las Vegas for no matter what amount of money unless they allow him to inject his hands.

    This sounds like the premeditated silly shit a Flomo would say. And think it makes sense.

    If he doesn't take 120 million then he is a fraud beyond all measure. Most would fight Manny for far less than a percent of that. A journeyman for a fraction of a percent and yet The Best Ever.....will ya bite.....

    If the offer is real, we'll find out if Floyd is up there with the greats.

    If he refuses 120 million to take this fight he is truly a fraud.

    No amount of maney will matter. He will never fight him. Even if he makes the fight he will always find an excuse to pull out.

    Indeed. Then we will have to question some suspect shit with his cherry picking with Al Haymon at the centre of it all.

    It's not like fraud or corruption is new to boxing. And if you get more money for going soft on him than you make for your actual purse- considering Floyd makes sometimes 20 or 30 times more than his opponent, and for no good reason- then we have something to investigate.

    Floyd has not been in a REAL fight since Ortiz... a real fight. Everyone after and a few before was nothing but soft fights- obviously soft fights.

    Maidana gave a good performance worthy of a rematch, but the second fight was not the way Maidana fights.

    This could very well be true. I've heard Dubai is in the mix. They are doing everything to put themselves on the map since they are running out of oil and have done a great job. I'm sure the rules could be made where Floyd could get his hands numbed up. Will Vegas do anything to retain Floyd or the other way around. Mannys side will probably look at it as more good exposure for boxing but the fight would have to happen at a weird time in Dubai to keep it on American PvP. What time is it in Dubai, if it's past noon there I can drink now.

    "Dubai"

    "Arabs"

    Just put any "superstar" boxer along with those into google and see how many fights have happened over the years. It's always bullshit. I can remember a dozen or so years ago when Tyson was fighting there every other month.

    Let me fix a little bit of your assumptions here: First Dubai is a City in the UAE {(7) on the list oil reserve} . The UAE has a proven reserve of 97,800 Billion Barrels of Oil. List of countries by proven oil reserves - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The world wide consumption of oil is ~32 Billion Barrels of oil a Year. I don't think they are in a danger of running out of oil anytime in next 10 lifetimes, unless the world becomes less effecient by 35 times. Newer Technologies can extract oil from the ground but are currently uneconomical that would boost US (12) 26,000 MMBBL to over one trillion MMBBL. So anything that you have heard or read that says the world will run out of oil or our kids will not have oil is either a complete fabrication, something from the 50's or spouted by someone that has no idea what they are talking about. Dubai is all about ego. They want the biggest and the best to say they are the biggest and the best. Take a look at the first works for 2015 on youtube. PPV is how the money is made, why would a site venue do something to make less money? If the offer is real, and there is no bidding war and Vegas doesn't compete, I'm not sure Floyd can turn it down.
