Top Rank CEO and boxing promoter Bob Arum is optimistic about a Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight, revealing that the relevant networks are discussing a possible collaboration on the potential mega-broadcast.

Mayweather is in the midst of a six-fight deal with Showtime, a subsidiary of CBS, while Pacquiao is under contract with HBO. Arum, the longtime Pacquiao promoter, said the right people are talking to make the event a possibility.

“The networks are already talking,” Arum said to GMA News. “I am now more optimistic that the fight is going to happen than I was three or four years ago. I am talking to responsible people who are in touch with the Mayweather guys. All of these people have the ability to move it ahead and make it happen.”
