Bob Arum addressed media’s questions about a possible Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight at the Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito post-fight press conference in New York City on Saturday.
The hall-of-fame promoter also discussed what’s next for Cotto and former WBA lightweight titleholder Brandon Rios, who Arum said would now campaign at junior welterweight.
Undefeated welterweight contender Mike Jones and junior middleweight standout Delvin Rodriguez also spoke to the press about their impressive victories on the Cotto-Margarito undercard.
Arum on Mayweather-Pacquiao: “The public wants that fight, and certainly, we at Top Rank want that fight, Manny wants that fight, and I believe Floyd wants that fight. Why wouldn’t I be optimistic?
