MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada - At the post fight press conference following Manny Pacquiao's twelve round majority decision victory over Juan Manuel Marquez in the third installment of their rivalry, Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, called for an immediate fourth fight between the two superstars.
"I do fights in Mexico. There are a lot of angry Mexicans out there. I want a fourth fight. I want to be safe when I go to Mexico," said a smiling Arum.
The Top Rank CEO said that he had Pacquiao winning the fight but said that it was very close.
"I had Manny winning a close decision but I'm his promoter so my opinion doesn't count," said Arum.
Arum reiterated that he thinks an immediate fourth fight is in order. He said that eventually a fight between the two fighters will end with a definitive victor.
"My advice to all of the parties involved is for an immediate rematch. It was a great fight."
