Manny Pacquiao told a handful of scribes late Tuesday that he hasn’t decided on who to fight on November 11.
Pacquiao, appearing at the Sofitel Hotel for a major event, said there’s only one sure thing.
“Definitely, I will be up against a boxer,” said Pacquiao, who didn’t bite when pressed to comment about granting Timothy Bradley a rematch or giving Juan Manuel Marquez a fourth shot.
“Wala pa, wala pa,” said Pacquiao, who is fresh from a vacation in Israel and France.
It is common knowledge that Pacquiao will choose between Bradley and Marquez but the 33-year-old Filipino kept his cards close to chest.
Meanwhile, the camp of Bradley is hoping that Pacquiao decides to face him next.
Cameron Dunkin, the manager of Bradley, said the 28-year-old California hotshot is aching to share the limelight again with Pacquiao following the controversial ending of their June 9 title clash.
Bradley was the recipient of a split decision win over Pacquiao in that celebrated bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, a verdict that sent shockwaves all over.
Dunkin said Bradley is eager to show that he deserved the win.
“Tim wants this fight with Manny,” said Dunkin.
But Dunkin said they are not in a position to demand since everything is “all up to Manny.”
If Pacquiao decides to face someone else other than Bradley, Dunkin said his fighter will emerge again for a fight in October or November.
Top Rank chief Bob Arum is actually arriving in the country in early-August to discuss the future with Pacquiao.
