Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum said Wednesday he’ll start talking to Mayweather’s camp “sooner rather than later” about matching the world’s top two welterweights for a Nov. 13 bout in either Las Vegas or Texas.

“That’s the fight people want to see, and that’s the fight I’m going to do my darnedest to make happen,” Arum said. “My first goal is to make that fight happen, but we’re not going to negotiate this thing in the press, because if we do, given the egos (involved), it’s never going to happen.”.
