Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum said by Twitter on Thursday that nothing is official regarding a Manny Pacquiao vs. Jesse Vargas fight. Yesterday the LA Times quoted Pacquiao manager Michael Koncz as saying that “the essence” of Arum’s meeting with Pacquiao in the Philippines is deciding whether the November 5 fight would be in Las Vegas or Dubai. “Not choosing the opponent. That’s already been done.”
Nothing is official regarding @MannyPacquiaoTR‘s next fight until all aspects are discussed next week in the Philippines.
