Bob Arum
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. - Are we all having fun guessing who Manny Pacquiao will be boxing against next?! It's almost as much fun as watching paint dry or grass growing or trying to find out why Pi (pie ╥) equals 3.14. It's not much of a secret, Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez seems to be the fight that will happen on December 8th.  It may not be official as of yet, but all indications are pointing to it.

In fact, in a recent interview with Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sport, Boxing Promoter Bob Arum confirmed that Pacquiao vs.Marquez IV is the fight he is working on.

Quoted by Iole regarding Pacquiao vs. Marquez, Arum stated: "We are hopeful we can work out deals with both guys and come to terms for a fight on December 8".

Arum did point out that nothing has been finalized. 

If not Marquez, the only other name being kicked around has been Timothy Bradley.  All fighters, Pacquiao, Marquez and Bradley are handled by Arum's promotional company, TOP RANK.  So although I can't say for certain it will be Marquez or Bradley... I can tell you that Pacquiao's next fight will be kept all in the Top Rank family. Look, at the end of the day, Arum is going to make the best deal he can for everyone involved... it's the way the cookie crumbles and although not pleasing to the fans... we can all understand business is business. Still, I can think of one fight Pacquiao could be in that would make everyone a hell of a lot of money... certainly everyone's fair share of the Pi 3.14... but in somewhat keeping with the title of this article... I'll let you guess what "Money" fight I am talking about.
