The Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas, NV - Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum spoke to and other members of the media shortly after the "Grand Arrivals" for Tim Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez who face on Saturday night at the Thomas and Mack Center in a fight televised on HBO pay-per-view. On November 23rd, Arum will promote another pay-per-view show that will match former eight division champion Manny Pacquiao against former super-welterweight champ Brandon Rios in the main event.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports and I asked the Top Rank CEO for his pay-per-view projections for each event.

"I think that Pacquiao-Rios will do 750,000-800,000 buys. I think this event (Bradley-Marquez) will do 350,000-450,000 buys. If this event does 350,000 it will be a very successful event," Arum stated.

Grimgash, How can you say Little Floyd is much better than Pacquiao, when Little Floyd is too chicken chit to fight Pacquiao?.

comment by Grimgash, on 10-09-2013
[QUOTE=Reloaded]HaHa , Rios will give him a tougher fight because Rios is not near as good as Canelo and Manny is not near as good as Floyd . Bhop said Floyd is top 3 ATG did you believe him , or what he says about Rios is truth but what he says about Floyd is lies . Rios is 180 pounder ...

[QUOTE=hectari]Rios will give Pac a tougher fight than Canelo gave Floyd. Even slow an sluggish Cotto gave Floyd a tougher fight than Canelo.
