Mayweather vs Pacquiao: It Could be March 13th or Never

pacquiao35367By Frank Car: Bob Arum, Manny Pacquiao’s promoter said if Pacquiao “let’s Mayweather off the hook now by not agreeing to the March 13th date because of the politics here in this country then we are never going to get him (Mayweather) in the ring. We will give him the excuse to say ‘Yeah I’ll fight anybody but look at this Pacquiao..” in an exclusive interview with Standard Today, Viva Sports and at the New World Hotel in Makati (city in Manila, the national capital of the Philippines).

“I am not here to interfere with his politcal life and March 13th doesn’t,” said Arum. “You can make an argument that because he is running for office Manny can’t fight on May 1st but you can’t logically with a straight face make an argument for March 13.”

He went on to say “we have everything in place to get it done but we’ve got to start now.” Then in siting reasons for that he said “there is no reason why Pacquiao wouldn’t do the fight. He trains in the month of January and February and we are not doing a tour and only one press conference in New York at Madison Square Garden.” The press conference he speaks of would be held on January 11th, 2010.

In speaking about Mayweather Arum said that he is a “very, very good fighter. He is probably one of the best defensive fighters that I’ve seen. But I tell you that as far as Manny Pacquiao, he will destroy Maywather and that’s why I like the fight, my matchermaker Bruce Trampler who is about to enter the Hall of Fame and Freddie Roach like the fight and that’s why Mayweather has been reluctant to do the fight.”

However it’s worth to note that Mayweather is not the relucant one anymore if he ever was. He is seemingly the one ready to go. Who will destroy who is something we all want to find out, hopefully coming March 13th.

Your move Manny.
