News – PH – Arum plans to scout Pacquiao, porter for Crawford’s next fight


Bob Arum, CEO of Top Rank, who promotes WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, will investigate two potential opponents for his fighter

Former Masters Manny Pacquiao and Shawn Porter are the names mentioned by Arum looking to secure one of them for Crawford’s next fight

Pacquiao, 42, has been out of the ring since July 2019 – when he scored a twelve-round win over Keith Thurman at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas against Keith Thurman.The win gave Pacquiao the WBA welterweight title, but he got it recently removed from this position due to inactivity

As boxing scene com previously reported, Crawford would prefer a fight with Pacquiao, but he’s also interested in Porter

The last time Porter saw action was in August when he made a unilateral twelve-round decision over Sebastian Formella

“[Shawn’s father and trainer Kenny Porter] came into our office two weeks ago to talk about a Crawford-Porter fight and then, out of nowhere, the idea of ​​a huge site fee, a way to get Pacquiao-Crawford, came up Obviously it’s more money for Terence Terence would prefer a Pacquiao fight than anyone, “Arum told Barbershop Conversations

“Yeah, we’ll see what happens and we’ll know this week if Pacquiao-Crawford can happen. If it doesn’t happen, since [Errol] Spence clearly doesn’t want to fight Crawford, I think that Crawford-Porter an enormous fight would be “

Crawford was in the ring last November when he defeated former champion Kell Brook in four rounds

One of the greatest fights in the sport is the union of Crawford and WBC, IBF World Champion Errol Spence

“Crawford wants to fight Spence, but Spence has said loudly and clearly that he doesn’t want to fight Crawford,” said Arum
