Boxing Promoter Bob Arum is certain that Manny Pacquiao will be fighting next November. What he isn't certain on, is what fighter Paquiao will face? What isn't lost on Arum, who promotes Pacquiao, is the fight the fans want to see. That fight obviously is one that pits Pacman against Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr.

In regards to Pacquiao's return to the ring, in a release sent to us here at Doghouse Boxing, Arum stated: "Manny is definitely going to fight in November."

Arum also discussed how amazed he is at the demand coming from Filipino fans in reagards to a fight with "Pacman" and "Money". "It’s amazing how many people came up to me as I was leaving the Philippines and asked me when is the Mayweather fight going to happen," stated Arum, adding: "That is the fight people want to see."

There has been a buzz around that net that if "Pacman" vs "Money" can not be made, Arum might use another one of his fighters, Antonio Margarito to face off against Pacquiao. However Arum seems more focused on making a fight with "Money" happen. In regards to what fight he is working on making happen, Arum stated: "That is the fight (refering to Pacman vs Money) that I’m going to do my darndest to make happen."

Arum refused to release a statement on any possible negotiations that may or may not have happened in regards to a "Pacman" vs "Money" showdown, citing that he wanted to keep contract negotiations out of the media.
