Bob Arum: Maybe Amir Khan later this Year and Canelo Alvarez Next Year for Pacquiao

Bob Arum is serious about working with Goldenboy Promotions Oscar De La Hoya. As he is looking for an opponent for Manny Pacquiao, he has a few in mind. First his options are his own stable of fighters, Of course he wants the Marquez vs Pacquiao V. If that falls through then everyone would love to see Ruslan Provodnikov vs Pacquiao. Now his third option would be to check with Oscar and since Floyd Mayweather vs Amir Khan can't happen in Sept, then he is willing to put Pacquiao vs Amir Khan on in November. 

The shocker is that he said that Canelo Alvarez could possible be an opponent for Pacquiao but that would have to happen next year. Right now the fans and media are so excited that this cold war just might be over. Right now, Richard Schaefer has been labeled the "heel" in boxing. My O My. We might be in for a treat.

Now Arum wants to work with Oscar after telling fans to boycott the recent Floyd fight which was co promoted by Golden Boy. SMH!  Canelo vs Manny? Is Pac gonna try to drain him down to 145 like he did Cotto & Oscar? Go to HELL Bob!
