WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38KOs), should he defeat Shane Mosley on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, will likely return on November 12. Top Rank has set aside the November date for Pacquiao's next bout. The probable opponent is Juan Manuel Marquez (52-5-1, 38KOs), who plans to return to the ring in the month of July against an unknown opponent.
Top Rank has already made an offer to Marquez. He has until mid-May to accept the deal. Pacquiao has told reporters that a trilogy fight with Marquez has an "80% chance" of taking place next.
