Arum-Dela Hoya Legal Battle Over World's #2 Pound for Pound Fighter

Since Manny Pacquiao defeated Erik Morales last Saturday (US time), his ranking in the pound for pound list escalate to #2.

On the other hand, Rudy Salud cautioned Pacquiao to honor the contract he signed with Golden Boy two months ago. This despite Arum's claim that - Manny was under contract not to sign with any other promoter. Pacquiao renounced the Golden Boy signing and given back the money. But Golden Boy refused to accept and all indications point to a legal battle between Arum and Dela Hoya.

Manny Pacquiao Won and Destroys Morales!!!!

Manny Pacquiao won the fight versus Erik Morales by knockout. Mexican boxer Morales shook his head and gave up in round three, after going down twice. (Fightnews)

After so much talk, the Morales versus Pacquiao issue, as to who is the better man, is settled. It is great to see that Pacquiao maintained his cool and humility despite all the trashing that Morales has been throwing to his camp.

Mabuhay ka Manny Pacquiao!

We look forward to Manny's fight versus Marco Barrera. But since they both belong to the same camp, I wonder how will that materialize.

Pacquiao on final phase training

Manny Pacquiao is now at the final leg of his training and expected to pushed harder by his coach. I hope that Filipinos will be a major crowd in this fight. For sure, the boxing machinery is enjoying the influx of income from this population minority who a lot has not paid money to watch boxing fights like this.

It is good that Manny can focus in this fight with his case versus an ex-lover decided upon by the court. The Bob Arum issue is something that needs to be get over with soon.
