Pacquiao wants April return

708 Views 12 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Ilesey
Despite Arum and Roach saying he should rest until September, Pacquiao said:

"There is nothing to be worry about. I am 100 percent healthy and right now I'm enjoying this memorable vacation with my family in this beautiful country of Israel. I will return to the Philippines on January 14 and in early February because I want to get to the gym because I want to have a fight in April and in September I want the fifth fight with Marquez."

A doctor has gone on record to suggest Manny is showing the early signs of Parkinson's, but Mannny responded:

"The statements by the doctors show a total lack of ethics and it was irresponsible. This was just personal opinion and there were no medical tests."

The doctor later said he based his opinion on watching Manny on TV, so no real substance for me.

Is it a good idea for him to return in April? Who does he fight?

I'd like to see him take on Bradley again, and get the merited W this time. Let's face it Bradley isn't going to hurt him & Manny actually looked a bit sharper with his punching against Marquez than he did vs Tim first time round even though he clearly should have won. If he was to show that sharpness in a rematch with Bradley, it could set him up perfectly for the next Marquez fight.
