By Edward Chaykovsky

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum is in the process of finalizing Manny Pacquiao's return, scheduled for April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The two frontrunners to face him are WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley and WBO 140-pound champ Ruslan Provodnikov.

Pacquiao's decision will affect the plans of his Mexican rival, Juan Manuel Marquez.

Marquez is pushing to get a rematch with Bradley, who won a twelve round split decision over the Mexican star last October. But Bradley is more interested in facing Pacquiao in a rematch. If Pacquiao picks Provodnikov, Arum will attempt to make the rematch between Bradley and Marquez.

“It’ll either be (Ruslan) Provodnikov or (Timothy) Bradley,” Arum said to the Las Vegas Review Journal. “We’ll let Manny decide, we’ll get a deal made with whoever he chooses and hopefully make the announcement in a week.

“If Manny decides to fight Provodnikov, then we can try and make a Bradley-Marquez matchup. But let’s see what happens with Manny first.”

[QUOTE=Tyler_Durden]We should all write letters to Top Rank and tell them that we are tired of recycled fights and that nobody wants to see Pac vs Provodnikov, Pac vs Bradley 2, Pac vs Marquez 5, or Marquez vs Bradley 2. These fights are clearly not the best possible fights that can be made but t...

[QUOTE=mathed]Arum knows he can't control Bradley and Bradley knows Arum will rob him if he threatens to leave so Tim will play it cool until he can jump ship then GBP will scoop him up quick for huge money. Tim goes to them and quickly becomes a frontrunner to challenge Floyd but Floyd tries to...
