Pacquiao still undecided on next foe
But he’s willing to fight Bradley again
MANILA, Philippines – Eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao has yet to make a final decision on who he will fight in November.
Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee returned to the Philippines on Friday after a family vacation in Los Angeles, Israel and France.
The Filipino champion said he’ll continue to think about his options following his controversial loss to Timothy Bradley last June.
Pacquiao, however, said he is willing to fight Bradley one more time so he can take back his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title.
“Ok lang kung si Bradley,” said the Filipino superstar. “Para maka bawi.”
Also being considered is a 4th fight against his Mexican nemesis, Juan Manuel Marquez.
Bradley wrested the WBO strap in a split-decision victory by the fight judges last June.
The decision was so controversial that the WBO ordered a re-scoring of the fight.
The panel, commissioned by WBO President Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel, unanimously scored the bout in Pacquiao’s favor.
However, the WBO could not reverse the judges’ decision.
Back to work
Meanwhile, Pacquiao said he is eager to get back to work as Sarangani congressman.
Pacquiao will be overseeing his provincial projects and will be helping to organize the anniversary of the Malugon municipality.
“Balik sa trabaho na. 'Yung mga budget na i-implement dapat may nagsu-supervise,” he said. – With a report from Dyan Castillejo, ABS-CBN News
