Manny Pacquiao Next Opponent? Bradley, Marquez, Peterson or Cotto
You want Mayweather, but Mayweather next fight is with the Vegas Penal System, so here are the options you and Pacquiao have.
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is headed for the Philippines on Sunday to visit Manny Pacquiao and will present him with four options for his next fight — none of whom is Floyd Mayweather Jr.
With Mayweather out of the mix for the time being, as he is scheduled to begin serving a three-month jail term on Friday for a domestic abuse conviction, Arum said the list he will offer to Pacquiao includes Juan Manuel Marquez, Miguel Cotto, Timothy Bradley Jr. and Lamont Peterson.
None of the opponents really excite me.
I guess Cotto would be the most interesting since he got his soul back from Margarito. Maybe the outcome would be different than him running from Pacquiao for 12 rounds after being knockdown twice.
Bradley may pose the most issues, but he is Tim Bradley, I could bring more excitement to the PPV.
The earliest you could get Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight would be November, but don’t hold your breath and don’t drop the soap Mayweather.
