“I was asked to tell you on Bob’s behalf that, unfortunately, Top Rank will not have an announcement on truTV as originally planned as Manny is not ready to make a decision on his opponent yet,” said Fred Sternburg, Top Rank spokesman.

Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KO’s) is likely to face Timothy Bradley Jr. (33-1-1, 13 KO’s) for the third time or American undefeated junior middleweight champion Terence Crawford whom Floyd Mayweather Snr think will give Manny Pacquiao too much to swallow in the ring.

Manny Pacquiao will bring down his rich boxing career to an end in April 2016 but how long can the world wait on who the Filipino is going to fight next?
