Arum Says Pacquiao Could Be Better Than Ever on 11/23

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum believes that the Manny Pacquiao fight fans will see when he faces former world champion Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios at the Cotai Arena of the plush Venetian Hotel and Casino in Macau on November 24 will be better than ever before.

Arum who has been in General Santos City watching Pacquiao train under the watchful eyes of Hall-of-Fame trainer Freddie Roach said "You are going to see a Manny Pacquiao that is perhaps even better than the Pacquiao we saw against (Oscar) De La Hoya, (Ricky "The Hitman") Hatton and (Miguel) Cotto."

De La Hoya was pulverized by Pacquiao who rearranged his handsome face and forced him to quit on his stool at the end of the 8th round, knocked Hatton out  cold in the 2nd round with a devastating left hook and dropped Cotto a couple of times before winning by a 12th round TKO.

Arum  observed thatPacquiao "is training more seriously and harder than anytime I've seen him. General Santos is a perfect place for him to train. He concentrates on nothing else but his training."

Pacquiao himself said he is committed to doing his best "to put my name back on the top of boxing."

Commenting on Rios' aggressive, com forward style Pacquiao remarked "that's what I want. I like that. I like that style."

[QUOTE=Boxing Goat;13879389]Sure, until he agreed to it, then it changed. Just go look at the rant Mayweather went on about why he will not take the fight with Pacquiao on yout*be and then come back and we can talk. Don't…
