TOP Rank boss Bob Arum is set for a Manila visit by next week to personally talk to Manny Pacquiao regarding the boxer’s planned comeback fight this November.

The veteran boxing promoter made the announcement on his Twitter account @BobArum.

“Leaving for Manila next week to meet with @MannyPacquiaoTR to discuss plans for his November 5th bout,” Arum tweeted.

Arum and the Pacquiao camp already had initial talks regarding the fight, which serves as Pacquiao’s ring return after initially announcing his retirement last April to run for a Senate seat in the last national polls.

The 37-year-old Pacquiao was impressive in his farewell fight, twice knocking down Timothy Bradley on his way to a unanimous decision win.

But three months after, the boxing legend, now an elected senator, decided to unretire, stressing he still ‘misses boxing.’

Arum is expected to present the list of possible Pacquiao opponents, reportedly to be a two-cornered choice between Terrence Crawford and Jessie Vargas.
