Koncz: Pacquiao's Fight Potentially Rolling Back To 11/10

By Rick Reeno

Michael Koncz, adviser of eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs), informed BoxingScene.com that the Filipino superstar's next fight is potentially rolling back to the original target date of November 10th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

A few days ago, it was widely reported that Pacquiao's HBO Pay-Per-View return was being pushed back from November 10 to December 1 - due to a scheduling conflict connected to Pacquiao's political career.

The political conflict appears to be resolved. However, there appears to be a scheduling issue with HBO. Koncz plans to meet with Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum this coming Sunday to finalize the scheduled date for Pacquiao's return.

"It's not so much the political end, there are issues with the December 1st date....a television issue and that's the problem, so that's what we're trying to work out," Koncz told BoxingScene.com.

The scheduling issue is likely related to Miguel Cotto's anticipated return on December 1 at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Bryan Perez, the Executive Director for Miguel Cotto Promotions, informed BoxingScene several days ago that Cotto was remaining on course for his December 1 return - with or without Pacquiao's next fight potentially falling on the same date.

Although Cotto is one of the three fighters being considered for Pacquiao's return, WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, and WBO 140-pound champion Juan Manuel Marquez, are viewed by most as the actual frontrunners.

[QUOTE=PBP;12451592]Yeah. Arum probably released the 12/1 story to the media to scare Marquez into thinking they were moving forward with the Cotto fight. Try and get him to take less money.[/QUOTE] Makes sense....Incredable Pix, they catch, The Moment of Truth!!!
