Manny Pacquiao Looking at March or April Date For Return

WBA welterweight world champion Manny Pacquiao had solid year in 2019.

He began the year in January with a dominating twelve round decision win over four division champion Adrien Broner at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao came back to the same venue in July, when he turned back the clock in defeating unbeaten Keith Thurman for the WBA title.

There are several possible options under the Premier Boxing Champions umbrella.

IBF, WBC welterweight champion Errol Spence is slated to return in the first half of the year after suffering injuries in an automobile accident.

There are also options like Danny Garcia, Mikey Garcia, Yordenis Ugas, Shawn Porter and several others.

Pacquiao, who is a senator back home in the Philippines, is looking to return on a date in March or April, because the Senate will be in recess from March 14 to May 3.

“I can fight in March, April because the Senate will be on break during that time,” said Pacquiao to the Manila Bulletin.

Some of Pacquiao's senatorial staff told the paper that a date of April 11 has been floating around.

MP Promotions head Sean Gibbons expects his man to fight in the first half quarter of the year.

“He will fight in the first quarter (of 2020) but there is no date yet,” said Gibbons.

While some believe Mikey Garcia is the frontrunner to get the fight, Pacquiao's Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach said he would prefer Danny Garcia as Pacquiao’s opponent. He believes Mikey is not an attractive opponent because he's coming off one-sided decision loss to Spence.

spence intentionally crashed his car so that he'd have an excuse to duck pacquiao!!! pacman should win fighter of the year.
