Unless you live under a rock you know how Manny Pacquiao’s last fight ended, but for those of you who do live under a rock don’t worry I got you covered. Manny Pacquiao was knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez back in December of 2012, thus making the Pac-Man the meme victim of the year.
Now it’s time for Pacquiao to return to the ring, and that date will be in September. Pacquiao does not want to rush back to the ring for a potential April return due to possible long term health issues. It is unclear who Pacquiao will fight in September but the most likely opponent will be another match with Marquez. This is what Pacquiao told Eddie Alinea of the Manila Standard Today;
Tell them to be patient. Bob Arum and myself have been talking and will continue talking. What is definite is they’ll see me fight again come September. Not April nor immediately after that as speculations are going. Tell the public that it won’t be long before I make them happy again when I fight. Tell them, too, that I appreciate very much their concern over my well-being when I lost by KO to Marquez and during the debate whether to fight in April. I treasure their concern and prayers that I recover quickly from my knockout loss. I want everyone to know that I am well and fully recovered. Thank you very much for everyone’s prayers
