Arum: If King Gets Mayweather, Pacquiao Deal in The Bag

By Lem Satterfield

On two occasions, negotiations for a megabout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather failed over the issue of Olympic style drug testing, this, with Top Rank Promotions acting on behalf of Pacquiao, and Golden Boy Promotions on behalf of Mayweather.

But during Thursday's national conference call promoting a March 12 clash between WBA junior middleweight king Miguel Cotto and ex-champion Ricardo Mayorga, Top Rank Promotions CEO, Bob Arum, said that he could make a Mayweather-Pacquiao bout in no time if long time rival, Don King, were handling Mayweather.

"If Don had Mayweather, and I, of course, have Manny Pacquiao, I didn't say that the fight would be made in a day, it would be made in one hour. Don and I would cut to the essentials, we would work out those few details, and we would make the fight," said Arum, who promotes Cotto while King promote Mayorga.

"Now with the experience that I had with the company [Golden Boy Promotions] that Mayweahter had been dealing with, the essentials were the last item," said Arum. "They was all of this nonsense that made for a lot of acrimony. Mayweather would do well to go with Don, and I would work with him. It would be one of the great, great promotions ever, if not, the greatest."
