The next opponent for Manny Pacquiao is still up in the air, says the boxer's adviser Michael Koncz. There are two options, WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley and WBO junior welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov.

Koncz says Juan Manuel Marquez, who consistently rejected a fifth meeting, is no longer an option for the scheduled return date of April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Koncz plans to sit down with Pacquiao next month, and then he will gather the information from their discussion and pass it along to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum.

Bradley, who won a controversial twelve round decision over Pacquiao in 2012, is the frontrunner. Provodnikov and Pacquiao are friends, sparring partners, and both are trained by Freddie Roach.

“I met with Arum last week, he gave me a proposal. I already had a brief conversation with Manny but it’s Christmas time, New Year’s time. We’re going to enjoy the holidays, Manny’s enjoying time with his family. At the first of the year, Manny and I will sit down, seriously talk about what we want to do, who we want to fight. And then I’ll relay that to Arum,” said Koncz to ABS-CBN News.

It would be sad if Manny was to fight Marquez instead of 2 champs: Bradley and Provodnikov. It would be jusy as sad if Floyd chose Khan over 2 champs: Maidaina and Danny Garcia. These types politics are killing our sport!

Arums stable is weak. Just keep recycling. Unfortunately for Manny, Bradley's going to win legit this time.
