Pacquiao Returns on April 12: Bradley, Marquez Eyed

Eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38KOs) is back in the hunt after dominating Brandon Rios over twelve rounds in Macau, China. Pacquiao snapped a two-fight losing streak. In 2012, Pacquiao lost a controversial twelve round split decision to Timothy Bradley and then he was knocked out cold in the sixth round by Juan Manuel Marquez last December.

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum announced April 12th as the next return date for Pacquiao, and this time he is going to fight on American soil. A Las Vegas venue is likely.

The Filipino star would not reveal his targets, but his trainer Freddie Roach was more than happy to reveal the boxers he wants Pacquiao to fight. At the top of the list is undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr., but that fight is the most unlikely of the bunch.

“Personally, I want Marquez but the thing is I can’t be sure if we can get him to fight us. Bradley is there. Obviously Mayweather is a guy we want," Roach said.

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum told reporters that he plans to sit down with Pacquiao to discuss the options for April.

“We’ll sit down and we’ll figure it out. If you figure something out in light of a big victory, you usually make the wrong decision. We’ll talk to Manny, we’ll talk to Freddie but I know that we are tentatively scheduled for April 12, hopefully in the United States," Arum said.

[QUOTE=HeroBando]Not the ONLY reason by a long shot. They're trying to open up the massive Chinese market to boxing, it's just smart business. You can tell Arum thinks ahead, remember him talking about Macau forever, nobody believed it would ever happen. Turns out he was waiting for the Chines...

[QUOTE=Bushbaby]Thurman ko's Pacman h.t.h. and Bradley soundly beats him in the rematch. (For the record I believe Pacman won the original 7-5).[/QUOTE] Bwahahahaha!!!!!! Based off what exactly? Did Thurman prove he can beat a world class fighter yet and did Bradley suddenly get so much...

[QUOTE=AlbanianTruths]I respect Floyd as a fighter, he's done amazing things and is truly a gifted fighter. BUT!!!!! If he doesn't fight Manny it will put that asterisks on his career. He's fought everyone ****but Manny Pacquiao***** I would live to see these 2 gladiators fight but I doubt ...

[QUOTE=ailicec]Why would Top Rank want to come back and have it's fighters fight in the US if they will get TAXED 30% or more on their earnings? Wasn't that the ONLY reason both Pacquiao and Arum chose China? I am glad Pacquiao beat Rios, TOO much talk from Rios and Garcia, just like Guerrero and...
