I know what you are thinking, but it is very unlikely that Manny moved back his date to fight Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather who just recently got out of jail is too busy counting money on his private jet to fight in December.

If anything this gives Pacquiao more time to finally pick an opponent which he seems to be struggling doing.

Manny Pacquiao, originally slated to return to the ring Nov. 10, instead will fight an opponent yet to be determined Dec. 1, his adviser said Wednesday.

Michael Koncz said the reason for moving the HBO PPV fight — Pacquiao’s first since he lost his welterweight title on a highly controversial split decision to Timothy Bradley Jr. on June 9 — was because of issues surrounding Pacquiao’s re-election campaign for the congressional seat he holds in the Philippines.
