Marquez-Pacquiao V Update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

A source indicates to Fightnews.com that the possibility of Marquez-Pacquiao V in September remains, most likely taking place in Singapore (at the Marina Bay Sands) or Macao (at the Venetian). By fighting in Asia, both fighters would pay significantly less tax than in the United States. A big issue to address is the time of the live telecast due to the time difference between North America and Asia. The recent Zou Shiming card on HBO2 aired on a delayed basis at 2PM ET/PT in the United States. A card airing during normal USA PPV mega-event hours would have begin at 9AM China time.

In any event, it appears that Pacquiao’s next fight is centered on either Juan Manuel Marquez or Timothy Bradley, although Marquez has been talking about fighting Bradley himself. Stay tuned…
