Manny Pacquiao's longtime fight promoter Bob Arum compared Floyd Mayweather to Adolf Hitler in an interview on Friday, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN.

Arum was speaking about Mayweather's increasing demands in order to fight Pacquiao when he compared him to the Nazi leader, according to TheSweetScience.com's Michael Woods.

"This is like a tactic, I'm not equating the politics, it's like Hitler," [Arum] continued. "Before the Second World War, 'give me Czechoslovakia, there'll be peace,' and this and that..and (Neville) Chamberlain (then UK Prime Minister) kept appeasing, kept appeasing...was there ever going to be peace? No. No. It's not going to get anybody closer to that fight."

Mayweather has previously asked for a strict drug testing policy, and a larger cut of the total purse if he is to fight Pacquiao. An online poll has been posted by Mayweather to allow fans to choose whether Amir Khan or Marcos Maidana should be his next opponent.
