Bob Arum

Pacquiao-Marquez Rematch

WILL HAPPEN

12/28/2012 12:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

122812_arum_launch
Manny Pacquiao ain't retiring ... and he WILL fight Juan Manuel Marquez for a 5th time -- at least according to boxing promoter supreme Bob Arum.

Arum was outside Madeo last night when he dropped the bombshell boxing fans have been waiting to hear ever since Marquez KO'd Manny's face into the canvas on December 8.

Arum said Manny is vacationing in Israel, but when he gets back ... "We're gonna, I think, do another fight with Juan Manuel Marquez. That was a great fight."

And even though a lot of critics think Manny should hang up the gloves -- Bob thinks he'll have a decent shot in a rematch, saying ... "He ran into a really good right hand, and we'll see what happens next time."

Bob bonus -- he also broke down the whole "fiscal cliff" mess for us.

I'd rather see Marquez fight Adrien Broner at 140 or 147, that would be a great fight.

Pacquiao will win this time...unless an asian runs over his heel...or he bends over for something with Clive Barker in the room.

TMZ, Dumbazzes supreme. One sentence you state he WILL fight a 5th time according to Arum. The next sentence Arum says "I THINK". Will and I think are NOT the same meaning. Sheesh.

So keep trying until Manny wins so you can put value back into the Manny vs Mayweather fight?

He's so greedy. He and Don King are cut from the same cloth. He'll milk Manny until there's nothing left, and Manny is too stupid to do anything about it. At this point, he has enough star power to do what Oscar de la Hoya, Floyd Mayweather Jr, and Miguel Cotto did and start promoting himself. He has nothing left to prove, and can still gain a lot more without Arum using him as a puppet.

Pacquiao needs to decide if he wants to get serious about boxing again. He's gone down the exact same path as Mike Tyson (well, not the rape thing of course). Both were phenomenal fighters at the top of their game, but let celebrity go to their head and started caring more about showing off than training. Both ended up getting knocked out in fights they should have won easily.

What value? That fight is dead. It has lost all of its luster and relevancy. There's nothing that Manny can possibly do at this point to prove that he deserve a 50/50 split from Floyd or even make certain demands like he did when they first negotiated.

Screw Bob Arum. If he wasn't involved we would have had Mayweather-Pacquiao by now.

Firstly, do NOT fall for the heightened Political Theatre, brought to you by a desperate and defeated
Confederacy of Evil ("Corporate America", their funded and subservient Politicians, the U.S. Print/Broadcast "Media", and their allied "Religious" "Leaders"). The ACTUAL "Fiscal Cliff"
was nineteen TRILLION dollars ago.

Ah, like every snake-skin promoter: ONE more fight, regardless of long-term consequences.

@Daniel: Firstly, you are NOT a fighter - a mere jab from "the Mexican" would be all you could take.

Secondly, if you REALLY want to see a fix (es)?
An "American-born" Kenyan "wins" TWO elections.

What a joke.... The Flip knows Mayweather will kick his butt if they fight. Arum dosent want to lose his cash cow so the flip will just keep fighting old washed up fighters. A Mayweather fight would make him 25 million if not more, but the Jew Arum would rather have him fight the Mexican 10 more times. The Flip even said one or two more fights and he's done, so go out with a bang and fight Mayweather , oh that's right you know you will lose.
