If a UFC and Floyd Mayweather can’t come to an agreement to make a rarely expected fighting compare occur with Conor McGregor, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum has an idea: How about a quarrel with Manny Pacquiao?
Pacquiao, a usually eight-division champion in fighting history, is currently scheduled to face Australia’s Jeff Horn on Jul 2 during Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. After that, though, Pacquiao is available.
Should UFC President Dana White, who’s already worked out a understanding with McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), destroy in negotiating with Mayweather (49-0 boxing), and if McGregor still wants to contest in a ring, Arum pronounced Pacquiao (59-6-2 boxing) is an choice to consider.
“If McGregor is still looking for an opponent, Manny Pacquiao is there,” Arum, who promotes Pacquiao, told TMZ.
Arum knows a thing or dual about negotiating with Mayweather’s team. For years a superfight between Mayweather and Pacquiao was discussed and unsuccessful to get finished on mixed occasions before finally function in May of 2015. Mayweather scored a unanimous preference over a Filipino star in a hitch that unsuccessful to compare a hype.
With it appearing as yet no deadline is in place between a UFC and Mayweather, Arum also supposing recommendation for White as he attempts to negotiate with Mayweather’s team.
“Be patient, don’t give in,” Arum said. “Dana’s a good negotiator, and he’ll get a thing done. But he can’t be pushed around by Mayweather and his people.”
