Arum Feels He Can Make Pacquiao-Marquez 5 in Macau

By CARLOS ARIAS

INGLEWOOD, CALIF. --- Following his unanimous decision victory over Mike Alvarado at The Forum, Juan Manuel Marquez didn't sound so enthusiastic about fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao, but Top Rank CEO Bob Arum believes he can get a fifth fight done.

"What he said was he would go back and consult with his team and analyze the fifth fight and see what he will do," Arum said. "I think that's a pretty good statement. I'm failry confident (that the fifth fight against Pacquiao could me made). It's up to him. It really is. Manny wants the fight. I think that there is a lot of money in the fight, so we'll see. Kevin said maybe the pay-per-view numbers would be down because it's the fifth time and that's a possibility, but I say so what, because the U.S. is not the only market."

Arum wants to hold the fifth Marquez-Pacquiao fight in the month of November, in Macau, and two-time Olympic gold medal winner Zou Shiming would appear in the co-feature in a world title fight.

Pacquiao/Shiming co-headlined a card last November in Macau, where the Filipino star dominated Brandon Rios over twelve rounds. The card generated lukewarm pay-per-view figures. This time around, Arum will offer the card on pay-per-view not only in the United States, but also in China. The price of the pay-per-view in China will translate to around $10 dollars USD.
 
"This time in November we already got everything going for pay-per-view in China," Arum said. "We have Zou Shiming fighting for a title, Manny, it will be a big card. Sunday morning is an ideal time for pay-per-view in China."

Why Macau? I bet it's good for Arum's pocket and Manny will make tonnes there too but in terms of PPV, we all know how loaf Americans are at buying foreign PPV events, it's ridiculous but true. The last Many/JMM…

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;14564522]It will be interesting to see who is the "A" side of the fight. Manny's PPV numbers have been low against both Rios and Bradley, and Bradley II was one of Manny's lowest live gates to date. So obviously Marquez…
