Advisor: Pacquiao's next foe settled soon
By Michael Woods
Bob Arum left the Phillippines on Saturday after a final meeting with Manny Pacquiao and advisor Michael Koncz.
Koncz told ESPN New York that he and Pacquiao will talk over the proposed fighters that Arum presented to them for a June bout. So, when will we know who gets the Pacquiao lotto ticket, the date to dance with the Congressman?
"Manny and I want to talk over a few things, so maybe we'll release who Manny is fighting next by the end of next week," Koncz said.
And is Floyd Mayweather Jr. still on the short list for that next fight, which would have to unfold before his June 1 report date to serve a jail term for a domestic assault on his ex-girlfriend?
"No comment," said Koncz.
