Top Rank Promoter Bob Arum told ESPN that Manny Pacquiao's final opponent will be announced Friday night on the truTV telecast. The broadcast begins at 10pm EST. The announcement from Bob Arum makes it highly unlikely that Amir Khan will be the next opponent. Both Terence Crawford and Timothy Bradley will be in attendance for the truTV card, both of who have been trying to get the Pacquiao fight. Pacquiao was debating between the three fighters as to who his final fight would be against. It's hard to see a situation where Arum has two of his top guys in attendance, tells everyone that Pacquiao's final fight will be announced on the card, and then say it's Amir Khan.
As of last week the front runner was Timothy Bradley but with the negative reaction of the fans to a trilogy between the two fighters maybe Pacquiao changed his mind in the last couple days. We'll find out Friday night.
