After a week of anticipation Top rank and Golden boy promotions settled their differences and made us all boxing fans the winner… (applause please..hehe). In Just 10 minutes the Pacquiao-Barrera II came into a reality. Richard Scaefer the top executive of Golden Boy and Bob Arum Top rank’s CEO had a confidentiality agreement and sealed the promotional war which started by Manny Pacquiao signing both boxing promotions.
The Pacquiao-Barrera II will be co promoted by Top Rank and Golden Boy promotions. This would be one of the candidates for fight of the year. I can’t wait to see the two top pound for pound fighters in the world exchanging jabs and bragging rights. For Barrera it would be a revenged on his last bout with the Pinoy destroyer and will solidify himself as Boxing’s legend pound for pound. It would be one of boxing’s graceful exit as Barrera is set to retire after this mega fight. As for Manny it would be an icing on the cake to grab the no.1 top pound for pound ranking in the world.
I’m just glad everything is settled and in fact this could save boxing and would somehow level up to its top competitor sport which is the mix martial arts competition. Pacquiao did saved boxing although it was a stupid way of signing both promotions but what the heck its effective.
