Filipino congressman/boxer, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, will fight on November 13, 2010, not against Floyd Mayweather Jr., who hasn’t responded publicly to questions regarding the Pacquiao fight negotiations, but against Antonio Margarito for the vacant WBC 154-pound title at what looks to be the Dallas Cowboys stadium where he last fought according to Lance Pugmire of the LA Times.
Pacquiao faced Joshua Clottey on March 13, 2010 in front of a crowd of around 51,000 fans at Cowboys stadium — a fight that Pacquiao won via unanimous decision.
The only thing Bob Arum, who promotes Pacquiao and Margarito, is waiting on is for a Wednesday review by the California State Athletic Commission on whether or not Antonio Margarito deserves to be relicensed again after his year long suspension from boxing in February of 2009 when he was caught with plaster-like substances in his handwraps before his TKO loss to Sugar Shane Mosley.
If the California Athletic Commission doesn’t approve Margarito for a boxing license, Margarito can apply for a boxing license in several other states and likely get approved by one.
HBO Pay-Per-View will carry the fight and cover the lead-up with an HBO 24/7 series for Pacquiao/Margarito.
