Manny Pacquiao answering questions from the media
Earlier this week, Lance Pugmire of the L.A. Times tweeted (@latimespugmire) in the aftermath of Juan Manuel Marquez accepting the terms to face Manny Pacquiao a third time:

  "Arum said he met with Golden Boy's Richard Schaefer Monday, ended with "burst of goodwill and handshakes," expects to work with GB again."

Could it be?! A thaw in the “Cold War” between the two promotional powerhouses?

When I saw Arum on Wednesday afternoon at the media day for Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood (and imagine that; real promoters who actually still try and, y' know, promote their fighters and not just pocket HBO welfare checks), he told me, "Well, we had a mediation meeting- I can't say what happened there because it's confidential- but after the meeting, Schaefer and I met, shook hands and said that bygones would be bygones and we would end up working together."

For the sake of boxing, let's hope so.
