Bob Arum: Manny Pacquiao rematch with Floyd Mayweather likely
18:40, Tuesday, 08 November, 2016
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said newly crowned welterweight world titleholder Manny Pacquiao will "definitely" fight again in the spring and said "I give it 75 percent" that he will face Floyd Mayweather in a rematch.
Making the first fight dragged on for a tedious five years of "will they or won't they." A second fight wouldn't take nearly as long to put together if Mayweather wants it, Arum said.
"Floyd came to the fight and he was very friendly with [Top Rank president] Todd [duBoef] and some of our staff," Arum told ESPN․
