Manny Pacquiao’s Next Foe Could Be Announced Next Week


As early as next Tuesday, we might know who Manny Pacquiao would be facing next. According to Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s future foe, who he would face in a June 9th encounter, could be one Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12 KO).

Originally, the list for Pacquiao’s opponents saw potential matchups with Juan Manuel Marquez, Lamont Peterson, Miguel Cotto and Bradley. The team’s first choice was Cotto, but he is now fighting at junior middleweight and refused to fight at 147 lbs. Hence, Bradley appears to be the top choice.
