Adviser: Pacquiao-Mayweather bout likely in March
MANILA, Philippines — An adviser to Manny Pacquiao says the Filipino boxer is likely to fight undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. on March 13 after agreeing to a proposal from promoter Bob Arum.
Adviser Michael Koncz says Arum presented “what he thought was the best proposal he can bring” during a two-hour breakfast meeting with Pacquiao in Manila on Friday.
Koncz says Pacquiao has “some additional requirements, requests, which Arum didn’t think was a problem.”
If the bout goes ahead, it will match two men regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighters.
