Arum Not Concerned With Alvarez Offer To Marquez

By Rick Reeno

Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, told BoxingScene.com that he's not concerned with Golden Boy Promotions offering Juan Manuel Marquez a potential fight with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.  Marquez has an offer on the table for a fall trilogy showdown with Top Rank's superstar, Manny Pacquiao. Golden Boy's CEO, Richard Schaefer, told BoxingScene on Monday that he's willing to match the Pacquiao offer by presenting a lucrative deal to Marquez for a fall meeting with Alvarez. Golden Boy has until February 2012 to match any competitive offer received by Marquez.

"If they match the offer, then we'll go with someone else. They can make Klitschko vs Marquez for all I care. Lets' worry about this fight first [with Shane Mosley]. Let's see what happens with this fight first but [if Pacquiao wins on Saturday] I'm sure that's the fight [with Marquez] that we're going to look at next," Arum told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=ramses07;10473622]I think you guys are seriously missing the sarcasm from both Arum and Schaefer. Why would jmm, who has been been begging PAC to get into the ring with him since 2008, go fight Alvarez instead. Both parties know that…
