Top Rank promoter Bob Arum has revealed that he and Mexican promoter  Fernando Beltran are prepared to stage the fifth battle between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez in Mexico this September.

Arum told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard “we’re saving Mexico for September” even as he indicated Beltran was “not of a mind to go make money for a Manny fight now in Mexico and there’s nothing I can do.”

Pacquiao has said he is keen on returning to the ring in April following his crushing 6th round knockout at the hands of Marquez at the MGM Grand Garden  Arena in Las Vegas last December 8.

Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz is in the meantime in Singapore trying to work out a deal for a fight for the eight division world champion in April but Arum is doubtful it will happen.

Arum said Top Rank president Todd duBeof visited Singapore “and was not able to get anything going that makes any sense.”

He said Macau was a real possibility and  told us “we could have gotten something going but unfortunately the dates were not available” at the Venetian  because of bookings by a Korean pop star.

He said the only date available was April 1 but “you could not do pay-per-view because it’s the big college basketball so that knocked it out.”

[QUOTE=el***]Floyd has fought only during May or September and only at MGM for like the last 5 or 6 years. Arum has already complained that he gets those dates but well he signs up for them first.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]No way will this fight be in Mexico. Bob is just using this for negotiating leverage. Probably to try to get Jerry Jones to open up his pocketbooks a little bit more in order to have this in Dallas.[/QUOTE] You're probably right. They hardly ever have big fights there and...
