The defeat of Manny Pacquiao against Timothy Bradley does not come as a surprise, it has been expected by Bob Arum himself who hinted for the first time that he has already scheduled November 10 as the date for the rematch.
Timothy Bradley joined Top Rank with one objective in mind, to fight the best fighter in the business and get enough recognition for his boxing skills as a fighter.
The trilogy between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez is Bob Arum’s first choice to be slated in November if Pacquiao overcomes Shane Mosley in their bout on May 7.
When Manny Pacquiao started his training in Baguio for his May 7th showdown with Shane Mosley, you can gauge up of how Pacquiao is so focus and gives that much importance in his upcoming fight that he treated his training preparations seriously.
The recent announcement by Bob Arum as he explored the probability of getting a deal with the Mayweather camp just ended again for the nth time in frustration.
The choice of Shane Mosley over the rest of the contenders for Manny Pacquiao’s next opponent is well expected and it doesn’t come to us as a surprise.
Recent pronouncement as “satisfactory” by Bob Arum of what he saw for Pacquiao’s training status in Baguio is something that has to be taken seriously.
Oscar de la Hoya’s suggestion that Manny Pacquiao should face Juan Manuel Marquez instead of Antonio Margarito after having been denied a fighting license in California is uncalled for.
There must be a good reason as to why Bob Arum, the Top Rank boss is tapping Margarito to be Pacquiao’s next opponent. With his difficulty in negotiating with the Mayweathers and all the obstacles in between, the fight with Margarito is a good alternative for Pacquiao.
