Arum on Pacquiao signing with Haymon: “I wish him the best of luck”

Bob Arum shares his thoughts on Manny Pacquiao aligning himself with Al Haymon.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

In this video interview with Fight Hub TV, Top Rank promoter gives his quick thoughts on Manny Pacquiao recently signing with Al Haymon, once a bitter rival.

Arum says he hopes for the best for Pacquiao, but he’s aware that Pacquiao has a huge outstanding tax debt in the United States (rumored to be in the 8-figures), which could make it difficult for him to fight Stateside. Check it out...

Arum on Pacquiao signing with Haymon:

“We had nothing for [Pacquiao] and he has a big [tax] problem fighting in the United States. So I hope he has something and hope something materializes, we have to see. You know, obviously he’d like to fight Mayweather again, Mayweather now says he doesn’t, so we’ll see.”

On the talks of Pacquiao facing Adrien Broner next in January:

“I don’t know. Will they be able to solve the tax problem in time? That’s up to them. But whatever happens, I wish him the best of luck, a tremendous warrior, and whatever he’s doing in the future, he deserves.”
