Pacman fights at MGM Grand April 12

By Nick Giongco

Manny Pacquiao’s much-awaited return to the ring on April 12, 2014 will be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Top Rank chief Bob Arum told Fightnews and the Manila Bulletin. Arum said the identity of Pacquiao’s foe will be known before Christmas. Tim Bradley, Juan Manuel Marquez and even Ruslan Provodnikov, who is also being trained by Freddie Roach, are being considered. But Bradley, who won an unpopular split decision over the Filipino in June last year, and Marquez, who stopped Pacquiao in their fourth fight in November of the same year, are the leading candidates. Pacquiao is fresh from a convincing win over Brandon Rios in Macau.
