Bob Arum: Born-Again Manny Pacquiao good for Boxing and Himself

1 Comment

Top Rank Boxing promoter Bob Arum does not think Manny Pacquiao will lose his killer instinct after the Filipino boxer announced he was renewing his Christian faith.

Bob Arum believes that the impact of faith on Pacquiao’s performance will be positive when he goes in the ring.

“Now that he’s found religion, he will be a lot more dedicated than he was when he was playing pool and gambling,” stated Bob Arum

Pacquiao recently said he has given up on gambling, drinking and womanizing and is “recommitting his life to God.”

The Filipino champion said he dreamed that he had a conversation with God after his fight with Juan Manuel Marquez last November.

He later accepted the Catholic Church’s invitation to become a “Bible ambassador.”

Bob Arum said religion will help Pacquiao prepare for his upcoming WBO welterweight title defense against Timothy Bradley on June 9.

“I think he’ll be in much better shape physically and mentally for the fight because he needs to be,” he said.

Arum stressed that it would be a mistake for Pacquiao to take Bradley lightly.
