said that, but I need to wait for Bob Arum. If Bob Arum says that I'll fight with Manny on November 10, that would be great for me....Bob Arum [also] said Manny might want to fight me in Mexico. That would be a great thing for me [as well]. My people want
to see me fight Manny again, and I'd feel very happy to do it again.”
