In a short chat with His Hairness Wednesday, courtesy of rival promoter Bob Arum, King told the Bulletin from Florida that he has big plans this year with Ricardo Mayorga of Nicaragua as his pawn and Manny Pacquiao as their ultimate target.

“We are going to make (Manny) Pacquiao versus Mayorga,” said King in his high-pitched voice immediately after being handed over the phone by Arum.

Pacquiao is under Arum and King believes Mayorga will secure a date with the Filipino pound-for-pound king with a smashing victory over Cotto.

“I am giving you breaking news,” hollered King, who met up with Arum in Hollywood, Florida, where Cotto held his media workout, reiterating the possibility of co-promoting Pacquiao-Mayorga.
