There had been much speculation as to who Pacquiao would be fighting next. Most believed that the Filipino star would be facing Juan Manuel Marquez in a highly anticipated rematch Feb. 26.
According to industry sources, the match is being made by Top Rank to put Marco Antonio Barrera and Golden Boy Promotions in a bind. With Morales and Pacquiao facing each other, Barrera finds himself for the time being without a big-name opponent.
Perhaps he can face Marquez, who sees himself on the outside looking in again.
