Arum won’t pay Pacquiao for fight in Philippines

MANILA, Philippines – Top Rank Inc. chief Bob Arum is open to the possibility of Manny Pacquiao fighting the Philippines as the boxer desires.

But the veteran promoter isn’t willing to pay the Filipino icon for it.

Speaking recently to boxingscene.com’s Steve Kim, Arum said Pacquiao isn’t keen on fighting Jeff Horn again in Australia or even in Las Vegas, adding that his fighter only has his sights on his home country.

“Pacquiao up to this point made it plain he's not coming over to fight in Australia,” said Arum. “No, he doesn't want to fight in Vegas, either.”

Pacquiao is reportedly planning to hold the rematch with Horn — who pulled off a shocking win over him last July — in the Philippines in December. According to a source, he has offered the Australian $3 million to defend the WBO welterweight championship against him at the massive Philippine Arena in Bulacan.

But the money won’t come out of Arum’s pocket.
