Mayweather Jr. Caught between Taxman and Pacman


Floyd Mayweather Jr. is pondering this next move. Faced with a deadline by boxing promoter Bob Arum, the American boxer has to make a decision that will have implications on himself both inside and outside the ring. Arum is waiting impatiently, as is the rest of the boxing world, for Mayweather Jr’s decision on fighting famed Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, nicknamed the Pacman.
