Manny Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum has vowed to move as quickly and efficiently as possible to secure a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Mayweather recently co-founded The Money Team Promotions alongside rapper 50 Cent, and Arum has expressed a willingness to co-operate with the new organisation - although it has not been confirmed whether or not TMT will promote Mayweather's fights.

Nonetheless, Arum has opted to touch base with 50 Cent over a Pacquiao v Mayweather showdown in 2013.
