According to the LA Times, promoter Bob Arum is considering a rematch with Timothy Bradley, a fourth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez, or a second fight with Miguel Cotto. The opponent reportedly will be selected in July.
We already knew that a fight against either of the first two gentlemen was being considered, but the possibility of Pacquiao facing Cotto again is a relatively new idea.
But you know what’s not different? That all three opponents are promoted by Arum’s Top Rank Promotions.
There’s no real draw to any of the aforementioned fights. We’ve already seen Pac Man-JMM three times and they’ve all been close, so I doubt we’ll see anything new there. Nobody wants to see Timothy Bradley again after he was gifted a decision last time. Cotto’s fine as an opponent, but still, all we want is Floyd Mayweather. Of course that’s not going to happen, so fans will just have to pony up $70 in November to find out what Bob Arum’s latest script says.
