Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum was quoted by the Manila Bulletin as saying that Manny Pacquiao could return as early as September if the right fight is made. Pacquiao's tentative return is going to fall in the month of November, but Arum says a September date could happen if the right fight is made.
A fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. is at the top of the list, but only if Mayweather drops his demand for random Olympic-style drug tests. If he drops those demands, the fight can be made very easily. Mayweather has to get past Shane Mosley in May.
Arum said Pacquiao's other options, if Mayweather does not come to the table, include Antonio Margarito, Juan Manuel Marquez, and even the winner of June's fight between Miguel Cotto and Yuri Foreman, who battle for the WBA junior middleweight title.
