Michael Koncz acknowledged a big advantage presented by Showtime's ability to televise a multi-part series that is equivalent to HBO's 24/7 -- on CBS primetime. There is also CBS's ability to reach 115 million homes compared to HBO's 28 million homes.

Koncz also addressed the notion broached by two-division champion, Bernard Hopkins, of Golden Boy Promotions that the 32-year-old southpaw Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 knockouts), who is pursuing his 14th straight victory and his ninth knockout during that run against Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KOs), has not yet faced a top, African American fighter, if not, a young one.

Those fighters implied if not named by Hopkins would includes six-time champion Floyd Mayweather (41-0, 25 KOs), WBC welterweight king Andre Berto (27-0, 21 KOs), southpaw WBC junior welterweight (140 pounds) titlist Devon Alexander (21-0, 13 KOs), WBO junior welterweight champ Tim Bradley (26-0, 11 KOs) or IBF junior welterweight contender and former two-time champion Zab Judah (40-6, 27 KOs).

Pacquiao is coming off of November's unanimous decision victory over ex-champ Antonio Margarito, whom Mosley knocked out in the ninth round in January of 2009. Margarito has knocked out Miguel Cotto, who has decisioned Mosley.

Michael Koncz: Manny's response to Bernard Hopkins is that Manny is a fighter and his job is to fight. Manny has people and a promoter, [Top Rank CEO,] Bob Arum, whose job it is to select the opponents.

So Manny doesn't pay any attention to that. Whoever is selected for him to fight and put in front of him, that's who Manny fights.
