    If you were some of the few who boxing fans who are still interested in seeing Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao fight in 2012, I’ve got some bad news for you. According to Dan Rafael, Pacquiao and Mayweather won’t be fighting in 2012. Instead, Arum says they’ll talk about the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight in 2013. Arum wants to match Pacquiao back up with Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth fight this fall, he said.

    However, Marquez won’t be just given the Pacquiao rematch. He’ll have to work for it by facing another one of Arum’s fighters former WBA World lightweight champion Brandon Rios in a proposed fight for July 14th at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. That’s a fight that Arum wants to make next, as long as Marquez beats his opponent Sergiy Fedchenko on April 14th and Rios defeats Richard Abril on the same night in their split site HBO pay-per-view card, which goes for a mere $44.95.
