Does Bob Arum Approve Of Manny Pacquiao Vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. Rematch? Promoter Says No Negotiations As Of The Moment

With the amount of commercial success the “Fight of the Century” garnered, it might seem like a Manny Pacquiao vs.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

rematch is already a no-brainer.

However, those talks will just have to wait for now.

According to Opening Round , there are no discussions between the two camps for a possible rematch says Top Rank promoter and CEO Bob Arum.

“Unless they’re negotiating with somebody else, it’s not me,” said Arum.

“There have been no negotiations, what everybody is saying is with the incredible amount of money that they did last time that neither guy can make anywhere near the money fighting somebody else then they could fighting each other,” he added.

“Nobody is saying they’re going to do the money they did last time,” said Arum, realizing that this event was more of a commercial success than a critical one.

Also, he was asked if he thinks that a Manny Pacquiao vs.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

rematch will match or even exceed the numbers of the May 2 fight.

“Who knows,” said Arum.

“Whether it’s two-thirds (of the interest) or one-half, whatever it is – it’s a huge number.” Meanwhile, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

is already firm on his decision to not grant Manny Pacquiao a rematch.

However, his uncle, Roger Mayweather, said his nephew should take on Pacquiao one more time.

Not because the undefeated American boxer needs to prove himself more, but for the world to see what real a**-whooping means.

(Via On the Ropes Boxing ) “I think it was one-sided, but I think they should have a rematch,” the trainer said.

“He (Floyd) did what he could do, but if they fought again, he’d knock him out.

If Floyd and Pacquiao fought again, Floyd would knock him out,” he claimed.
