Manny Pacquiao loses pound for pound top rank on Yahoo for May

“Manny is definitely going to fight in November,” Arum said, noting Nov. 13 as the likely date and the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and Cowboys Stadium as the likely venues. “It’s amazing how many people came up to me as I was leaving the Philippines and asked me, ‘When is the Mayweather fight going to happen?’ That’s the fight people want to see.
“That’s the fight that I’m going to do my darndest to make happen. I don’t want to discuss any of the issues involved in making that fight because we are going to be involved in negotiations and my first goal and Manny’s first goal is to make that fight happen. But we are not going to negotiate this thing in the press, because given the egos of all the camps, it would never happen.” Yahoo!
