Manny Pacquiao has reportedly put some pressure on his promoter Bob Arum, to set up a fight against Floyd Mayweather:
Arum and Pacquiao met over dinner Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), along with three other men, one of whom was the Filipino congressman's adviser, Michael Koncz, with Arum outlining the positives and negatives of potential bouts with Timothy Bradley, Juan Manuel Marquez, Miguel Cotto and Mayweather. But if Pacquiao was leaning one way or another, he didn't make it known.
"He kept a true poker face," said Arum of the Filipino ring icon. "I explained to him everything that is going on and what we thought, but he didn't give anything away. He just listened and took it all in."
According to the report, Pacquiao made it clear that he wants a fight with Mayweather to finally push through, but Arum said such a bout would be "most unlikely" in the near future, given Mayweather's current jail sentence.
