A fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao might be ideal in November, promoter Bob Arum said Monday.

Mayweather "isn't in the picture" to fight Arum's boxer, Pacquiao, in May, Arum told the Los Angeles Times.

"They don't want to fight in late May," Arum said of Mayweather's camp. "It's dead for May, so we should sit down with everybody, let Mayweather fight someone else May 5 and we'll fight someone else June 9, and then let's get a signed contract for (Mayweather-Pacquiao) in November. That's a win-win for everybody."

Mayweather has May 5 booked at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and wanted to fight Pacquiao then. Mayweather is scheduled to serve an 87-day jail sentence starting June 1 in Las Vegas on domestic violence charges.
