Lightbulb Arum eyes Mayweather Mosley, Marquez next

11/15/2010
Grapevine, Texas—After watching Manny Pacquiao execute another masterful performance against Antonio Margarito on Saturday (Sunday in Manila), the more renowned promoter Bob Arum got convinced that the Filipino has become the best fighter of his generation.

That speaks volumes, considering that the 78-year-old Arum has been in the business for nearly 45 years, dealing with the likes of certified greats Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran, who was among the 41,734 souls who watched the fight at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

"Everytime I saw him fight, he keeps on getting better," said Arum, adding that he felt that Pacquiao had not reached his peak yet.

Arum said that despite the distractions Pacquiao had while training in Baguio City, the Sarangani representative was able to catch up when Freddie Roach moved training camp to his Wild Card Gym in Hollywood.

"I've never, ever seen a fighter like Manny," said Arum, who has always heaped praises on Pacquiao, but got critical a bit when he saw that Pacquiao was sluggish entering the third week of training camp.

Arum said next in line for Pacquiao could be Floyd Mayweather Jr., Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Manrquez, not necessarily in that order of preference.

Mayweather remains a big question mark as the former pound-for-pound king seems not interested to fight Pacquiao.

Mosley stands a good chance as Arum has reportedly initiated talks with the Mosley camp since last week in Las Vegas.

Of course, Marquez is back in the equation as Arum is finding it harder to field in fighters from his Top Rank promotions against Pacquiao.

"He's beaten Miguel Cotto, Joshua Clottey and now Margarito." /inquirer
