Pacquiao keeps mum on details of Hatton fight

MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao can now instruct his trainer, Freddie Roach, to begin mapping out a game plan against British boxer Ricky Hatton.

This came after both camps finally came to their senses and agreed to save the superfight that could bring in huge profits for both boxers.

However, Pacquiao, in an interview with GMANews.TV Friday afternoon, remains mum when asked about the details of the mega-bucks deal.

“Masaya ako at tuloy na ang laban. Nagkasundo na kami sa negotiations hanggang duon na lang at ayaw ko nang pag usapan ang nangyaring negosasyon. [I am glad that the fight will push through. We already reached an agreement and I don’t want to discuss the details of the negotiation]," Pacquiao said.

He added he would let his promoter, Bob Arum, do the talking when the Top Rank boss at a press conference set for Jan. 28 to formally announce the May 2 mega event.

"All I can say is the contract is favorable to me," Pacquiao said. "Now, all I have to do is to focus on training. And I hope the result of the match would be the same when I fought Oscar De La Hoya last December."

A few days ago, the Pacquiao-Hatton fight was given up for dead after both camps couldn't agree on the revenue split.

But a few months from now, Las Vegas is expected to spring back in to action on May 2 for the year’s biggest attraction. The MGM Grand, where Pacquiao did his eighth-round demolition of De La Hoya, is being eyed as the venue for the fight.

Pacquiao said he wants to start training at Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Las Vegas either by the middle or last week of February.

"I want another eight-week training to prepare for the fight. I want to train hard the same way when I trained against Oscar," Pacquiao said.

Pacquiao would have tried to get a bout with the retired Floyd Mayweather Jr., Edwin Valero, or Humberto Sotto if his fight against Hatton had not pushed through.

Pacquiao’s camp, however, began talking with Mayweather’s group when negotiations with the Hatton fight reached an impasse.

"We have been talking with Mayweather’s camp," he said. "But when we already reached an agreement with Hatton we formally informed them and thanked them for talking with us." – GMANews.TV
