Pacquiao Says He Will Definitely Return in September

Manny Pacquiao has revealed he will be making a return to the boxing ring in September.

However, the 34-year-old has not given any indication that he will fight Juan Manuel Marquez again after his brutal defeat in December which left 'Pac Man' motionless on the canvas for several minutes.

"Tell them [the fans] to be patient. Bob Arum [promoter of Top Rank boxing] and myself have been talking and will continue talking," Pacquiao told the Manila Standard.

"What is definite is they'll see me fight again come September. Not April nor immediately after that as speculations are going. Tell the public that it won't be long before I make them happy again when I fight."

In the aftermath of Pacquiao's crushing defeat to Marquez last year, there had been considerable concern about his health, with some medical experts even suggesting that he should hang up his gloves.

"Tell them, too, that I appreciate very much their concern over my well-being when I lost by a knockout to Marquez and during the debate whether to fight in April," added Pacquiao.

"I treasure their concern and prayers that I recover quickly from my knockout loss. I want everyone to know that I am well and fully recovered. Thank you very much for everyone's prayers."

Pacquiao said he would be prepared to fight against anybody, should the opportunity present itself.

"Marquez, according to news reports, doesn't want to fight me for the fifth time. It actually is up to him," explained Pacquiao.

"Me? Well, everybody knows I'll fight anyone. I am not scared of anybody. And that is the reason why boxing fans like me so much.

"I never avoid anyone. I don't choose easy fights. I will fight anybody, anytime, anywhere. If he doesn't want to fight me then I don't want to fight him either."

[QUOTE=Mike D;13183449]Lmao, dumb f**k, Broner wouldn't have even made it that far. We're talking about the same, overhyped bum whose best win so far is against Antonio DeMarco? The same clown who lost to freaking Ponce de Leon? The same…

[QUOTE=David1976;13183020]I suspect we have already seen the best of Pacquiao. Mayweather may at last fancy a shot at him and would probably massacre him. And it makes me sad saying that.[/QUOTE] Well if you think about health comes first when…
