Arum Expects Pacquiao To Fight at Least Six More Times

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum expects WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao to continue boxing until at least 2013. When he recently met with Pacquiao in the Philippines, the superstar boxer told Arum that the plans to fight at least two times per year, until 2013, and then retire.

The first fight of this year will be on May 7 against Shane Mosley. Pacquiao is expected to return in September or October for his second fight of the year. 

"[He won't retire] before 2013. He told me that on the day of his birthday in the Philippines. Between 2011, 2012 and 2013, he plans to have six fights," Arum said.

The issue that continues to come up is whether the boxing world will ever see a fight between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Arum doesn't see it taking place for the moment. He recently made attempts to contract Mayweather, who never returned any of the calls.

"Mayweather? You said Mayweather," Arum said. "Please, does anyone know where he is or where to find Floyd Mayweather Jr.?"
