If Pacquiao wins impressively, Arum wants Golovkin Next

Top Rank Bob Arum wants Pacquiao vs Golovkin next if the Filipino can dominate Jessie Vargas on November 5th.


Arum: “If Manny comes in and dominates this fight and looks like the old Manny, and wants to continue fighting, there will be certain opponents that will be considered. If he decides that it’s too much juggling two careers then he shouldn’t continue. If he is determined to continue and his performance suffers because of his work in the Senate I would have to look in the direction of somebody else for an opponent. So to jump now about names and so forth, who knows? Manny may look so good in this fight and may have such senatorial presence in the fight that we may be looking for Golovkin next”

He thinks Pacquiao is still on his top to fight the world P4P boxer Golovkin today.

Arum also added: “If he doesn’t vote right in the senate,” he continued. “I think some of his constituents may be urging him to fight Golovkin.”

However, Pacquiao never underestimates the world champion, Jessie Vargas.

“Vargas is a world champion, so in no way can I underestimate him. You can never underestimate a boxer who is a champion," Pacquiao said.
Pacquiao vs Vargas is slated on November 5, 2016, at Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas. Vargas will defend his WBO welterweight title for the first time against the Filipino legend.
