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.

Datant, i'm sorry to disappoint you, but he can't beat Floyd. Out of every boxers out there from 147 to 160..., Sergio Martinez has the best chance to give Floyd his first defeat. Floyd would give Canelo a boxing lesson.

Bob, you should protect your cash cow. Pacman was cheated and it almost cost his life. Marquez is roided. What the hell is Memo Heredia, the confessed drug peddler, in Marquez team. Marquez did not have that power and body built for 17 years. How come Marquez had it in 4 months of association with Memo Heredia. Freddie smelled it, but no one listened to him. Do the VADA test in the 5th fight. Again, protect your cash cow, Bob.

Arum did not do very well with Bradley and Manny. It seems like Pacman and Marquez did a better job. I am beginning to doubt Manny. Is he making so extra $ on the side line? It does look like it to me. Watch out for whom you are betting for? MMA UFC are more real IMO

I believe the knockout punch would really put anyone out because it wasn't seen and the punch had the full force in it. But the first knockdown really makes me suspicious. I really cant believe Juan Manuel Marquez could knockdown Pacquiao with one punch given that the punch was from afar and was clearly seen. In fact Pacquiao even tried to move away to soften the impact of the punch. Its no longer Juan Manuel Dinamita Marquez. Its now Juan Manuel Inc”PED”ible Hulk Marquez.

I want to see a scarambula between Marquez, Mayweather and Pacquiao, In marquez outing preview to this with Manny he was decked by a wooping punch by Mayweather. Let us see If manny and May fight will be negotiated, however wins will have a rematch, point system to settle how is the greatest in this decade. Everyone is claiming so be it.
