Mayweather speaks out against Bob Arum...

Floyd 'Money' Mayweather.
Floyd Mayweather Jr told us today that former promoter and now biggest rival Bob Arum is attempting to sue Mayweather's adviser Leonard Ellerbe over the Yuriorkis Gamboa situation.

In case you haven't heard about what happened between Mayweather Promotions, Top Rank and Gamboa this sums up what happened:

- Gamboa no-shows at press conference for fight with Rios.
- Rumours heard that Gamboa was in talks with Mayweather promotions.
- Gamboa spotted training at Mayweather's gym whilst he was meant to be at the second press conference.
- Top Rank threaten to sue whoever was responsible for Gamboa's no-shows and exit from the promotion

It is now fight week for Mayweather and Cotto and 'Money' is being his usual self. Whenever it comes to the week of the fight he starts speaking out a bit more and starts to say a few controversial things. This is what he had to say about the Gamboa situation:

Gamboa training at Mayweather's gym.
"Bob Arum has been filling you all up with his bullshit for years and robbing fighters. He's trying to sue Leonard for Gamboa, knowing that he's been treating his fighter wrong. Gamboa came over here and all this fighter wanted to do is making a living. They've been treating this fighter wrong from the beginning. I'm wrong because I want to treat a fighter right? You know why? Because Don King and Bob Arum can't see out the eyes of a fighter, because they are not a fighter."

Floyd Mayweather is finally starting to come alive for the first time in the build-up to this fight. He also lashed out at Manny Pacquiao and HBO during his rant.
