EXCLUSIVE: Bob Arum speaks on Mayweather's big surprise in May

By Kevin Davis

I had a chance to chat awhile with Top Rank President Bob Arum, and speaking on upcoming events and past events. 

Karceno: How's it going with the recovery?

Arum: "Fine, I'm doing physical therapy and it going well."

Karceno: Okay I will get right into it, what do you thing about Mayweather's big surprise in May, meaning could it be a Manny Pacquiao fight?

Arum: "I heard about it, but no one has contacted us about anything, so if he planning it for Manny, they haven't said anything as of yet, he needs to concentrate on his other bout against Maidana but I guess he knows how that will play out."

Karceno: Speaking about Manny who will he be fighting?

Arum: "Well, I have to sit down with Manny next week and we should have an announcement shortly after that." 

Karceno: "Miguel Cotto is still a fighter without a fight, so will he fight again this year or just wait around for Canelo or Mayweather."

Arum: "Miguel wants to stay active, he and his team are looking at a December fight so we will try to find a match-up for him. Then if he wants to fight those names next year, hopefully we can assist him with that also. We love Miguel."

Karceno: How easier it is to work with Golden Boy now that Richard is gone, no more arguing over who's paying the DJ.

Arum: "Exactly!, that was Swish banker thinking there. We have just had talks, but nothing with paperwork as of yet, but already it's a breath a fresh air. I'm not going to say nothing more, he's lawyer up."
