Manny Pacquiao's Return Moved To Nov. 22 in Macau

by Edward Chaykovsky

The return of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs) has been moved from November 8th to November 22nd, according to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum. The fight will still take place at The Venetian in Macau, China. Top Rank was forced to move the date because of a conflict with a Celine Dion concert at the casino. Pacquiao was last seen in action last month, when he got revenge with a twelve round decision win in his rematch with Timothy Bradley.

Arum will sit down with Pacquiao's adviser, Michael Koncz, next week to discuss potential opponents. The Filipino star recently signed a very lucrative contract extension with Top Rank.

“We’ve shifted the date. The Manny Pacquiao fight here will be on 22nd of November. Celine Dion is going to perform here in the eighth,” said Arum to ABS CBN News. “Manny can’t make less for any fight than $20 million. So it goes up from there somewhere between $20 million and $30 million."

[QUOTE=Snake4380;14601082]$20 Million guaranteed to fight a former sparring partner and other recycled Top Rank opponents isn't that bad of a deal for Pac... Would have rather seen Pacquiao at least wait and take it fight by fight but without Marquez...Pac…
