Promoter Bob Arum said that the boxing match between Filipino boxing icon Sarangani Rep. MannyPacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. may push through in 2012 once financial issues are ironed out.
In an interview (news watch from GMA TV) he said that he is been talking to various investor groups and they want to make the best deal possible. He sees the fight pushing through in 2012 but he did not specify a date. Currently, they have been working diligently talking to investment groups and they also have to see if it’s acceptable to both sides.
According to Manny Pacquiao in an interview (GMA newsTV), he is willing to fight over May Weather Jr. in 2012 but they just need to deal the financial issues first in both parties.
