The projected to be the Fight of The Century between Manny "Pac-Man" Pacquiao and Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. may already happen next year. But the fans will have to wait for at least 10 months because the fight may fall on the month of October 2012.
According to another online article, Bob Arum is not rushing things in staging the match awaited fight between the two great fighters. In fact Arum said in the Examiner that:
"If it ever happens, it could happen in the latter part of 2012. It doesn’t necessarily have to be May 5th."Wakee Salud, one of Manny Pacquiao’s personal advisers, seconded the statement of Bob Arum, he said that:
"It (The Pacquiao-Mayweather Fight) could happen in October."The reason behind Arum's decision to schedule the Pacquiao-Mayweather Fight in October is said to be the poor physical condition of Manny who had just fought Juan Manuel Marquez. He further said that:
“If Floyd wants to fight Pacquiao, maybe another day is preferable, given the fact that Pacquiao had a serious cut in the last fight, so there is no magic in May 5th, but there is magic in Pacquiao-Mayweather fight.”
