Arum: Pacquiao-Garcia Possible If Golden Boy Has Him

NEW YORK – Bob Arum is interested in making a Manny Pacquiao-Danny Garcia fight for November if Garcia is contractually committed to Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions.

The uncertainty regarding which Al Haymon-managed boxers actually are under contract with Golden Boy is perhaps the most important question that remains to be answered after Richard Schaefer’s departure from the company Monday. But if Garcia, as his father/trainer Angel Garcia has indicated, is indeed a Golden Boy boxer, Arum would seriously consider Garcia as Pacquiao’s next opponent – particularly if Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez isn’t interested in a fifth fight against Pacquiao.

“You understand I’m a promoter, but also a lawyer,” Arum said prior to a news conference Wednesday for the Miguel Cotto-Sergio Martinez fight Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. “So I don’t go by rumors or anything. If Garcia is with Golden Boy and he is free to fight Manny Pacquiao, he would be moving to the top of the list.”

When asked if that meant Philadelphia’s Garcia (28-0, 16 KOs) would move above even Marquez (56-7-1, 40 KOs) on that list, Arum added, “I don’t want to say because Marquez, I don’t know if he wants the fight or not.”

Arum, whose Top Rank Inc. represents Pacquiao, also said that Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) still can make 140 pounds “easy,” which would eliminate a potential obstacle if Garcia intends to remain at 140 pounds to defend his WBA and WBC titles.

Schaefer

Schaefer better be careful, or he will be in court forever for multiple lawsuits from GBP. Schaefer still owns stock in GBP. If he puts the company at risk, there could be some legal problems for him.

Easy

Garcia would be an easy fight for Pacquiao, and would bring the Mexican, as well as Puerto Rican fans to the fight.

[QUOTE=Flash13]Canelo-maidana? If canelo wins his bout he is definately not fighting maidana. I mean maidana is barely a ww much less a jmw.
