Pacquiao's Adviser Says Provodnikov Was Not in Running

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

WITH Juan Manuel Marquez making a ridiculous demand for a $20 million purse to face World Boxing Organization welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao in a fifth fight and light welterweight champion Ruslan Providnikov losing his title by a split decision to Chris Algieri, the field of opponents for Pacquiao's scheduled return on Nov. 22 at the Cotai Arena in Macau has been severely restricted.

However, Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard: “The Russian was not even being considered, We will decide sometime next month.”

Multiple sources have told the BoxingScene/Manila Standard that Top Rank, trainer Freddie Roach and Pacquiao himself are looking at other possible opponents outside of Marquez.

Luis Sandoval of BoxingScene quoted Roach, who said that for Pacquiao’s next fight - “I’d like to fight Danny Garcia. I think that’d be a great fight for Pacquiao. I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen, but I think his next fight will be in China.”

Pacquiao could easily come down to 140 pounds to fight the undefeated Junior Welterweight champion Garcia, which would also provide an impetus to getting Top Rank promoter Bob Arum and Golden Promotions Oscar De La Hoya to work together once again. Arum said that fight could only happen if Garcia actually has a contract Golden Boy and is not simply a fighter being managed by Al Haymon.

Koncz is full of sh.t! Koncz loves to give the illusion that he has some say in who Pac fights and the purses given to the fighter. The truth is Koncz has about as much power as the average poster…
