On Monday night, Dan Rafael of penned this story, (see link provided below), which states that Top Rank and Manny Pacquiao are already focusing on another go-round with Juan Manuel Marquez and have no interest in facing Floyd Mayweather at this time.
To this, Bob Arum responded, “[Leonard] Ellerbe said he got an email saying that- are you f**king crazy? We don't even know his email address. I mean, the only two people that could send it from Top Rank would be myself or [Top Rank President] Todd [duBoef] and I assure you, we've sent nothing of the kind. Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing of the kind. The guy just finished fighting for Christ's sake. I mean, maybe he'll fight Marquez. Maybe he'll fight somebody else. Funny, for months, you can't hear from them. Now we have a fight that's over, my guys got a big cut. He wants to go home to the Philippines. I haven't discussed anything with him. You gotta understand; I'm not going to get stampeded into anything.
“What the hell’s going on? All I can say is we haven't sent an email to anybody else on that side to say ‘boo.’”
