I’m not a boxing fan. For those of you who are, you’ll recognize Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. as big names in the sport. Those two boxers will fight in the Spring of 2010.

Newsday asked boxing promoter Bob Arum if Yankee Stadium was being looked at for the fight. “No chance,” Arum told Newsday. “Nothing would please me more than to have it at Yankee Stadium, but the way the tax structure in New York is set up, it’s impossible.”
