MANILA, Philippines – Hall of Fame boxing coach Freddie Roach wants his top fighter, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao to return to the ring in September 2013.

Pacquiao was originally scheduled to return for an April 20 bout with unbeaten fighter Brandon Rios as a potential opponent.

But because of the brutality of his recent knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez, Pacquiao was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for 120 days. -- Dateline Philippines, ANC, December 24, 2012
