Pacquiao to face Marquez or Bradley next

In a report to, Bob Arum said that he has narrowed down Pacquiao's next opponent to either Timothy Bradley or Juan Manuel Marquez. Arum has ruled out Brandon Rios as a possible opponent, and it appears Mike Alvarado's next fight will be in Denver against an unknown opponent. Arum has been trying to land Marquez but Marquez has been reluctant to face Pacquiao again. If the fight cannot be made then Timothy Bradley will be Pacquiao's next opponent. A rematch with Bradley, that was unpopular right after the first fight, may have found a new spark after Bradley's fight of the year matchup against Ruslan Provodnikov. The fight is expected to land in Dubai or Singapore on September 14th.
