Pacquiao To Fight Cotto Next In November
Bob Arum has revealed to the Manilla press that he intends to put Manny Pacquiao in with Miguel Cotto, should he be victorious against Ricky Hatton on May 2nd. But if that didn't materialise he could also put Pacquiao in with Chavez junior at a catchweight of 150lbs.
"We can do it at Madison Square Garden," said Arum with regards a Pacquiao vs Cotto showdown.
Pacquiao will also be in attendance at ringside for Cotto's forthcoming fight with Joshua Clottey.
"Manny told me that after this one (with Hatton), he would be available to fight next in late November." said Arum.
When pressed whether or not Hatton may defeat Pacquiao, Arum conceded that â€œanything can happen in boxing, but speed kills and nine out of ten, speed wins as in any other sport.â€
Before adding "Hatton canâ€™t fight southpaws."
"Pacquiao figures to win ... and Pacquiao figures to win big. Manny and Freddie have this all figured out" said Arum.
Arum also revealed that Mayweather Junior was also looking for a slice of the winner of Hatton vs Pacquiao but was seeking 60% of the purse, which Arum refutes as he believes that Pacquiao is a bigger draw.
