‘Pacquiao wants fight in Macau’
MACAU – Philippines boxing hero Manny Pacquiao wants his next fight to be in Macau, according to his promoter Bob Arum, who says they are working on an autumn showdown in the casino enclave.
Negotiations are ongoing for a September rematch with Juan Manuel Marquez, who knocked Pacquiao out in December, Pacquiao's spokeswoman Rose Tamayo told AFP earlier this week.
Asked late on Saturday at The Venetian resort-hotel in Macau if Pacquiao would be appearing there this year, Arum said: "I hope so, I certainly hope so. That will not be this summer, but will maybe be in the fall.
Ten men and five women will compete in the Homecoming Cup 2013 Master Bowler crown in Bacolod City tonight, a press release from organizers said.
