Manny Pacquiao’s Ring Return Moved To October

“We are now looking at October,” suggested Koncz about Pacquiao’s return. At this time there is no mentioned or suggested opponent, but there are constant reports solidifying the rumor that the fight will indeed happen in Asia rather than in the USA. The idea of holding the event in Asia, is to avoid paying high taxes, but I feel will still come with a cost.

There will no doubt be ways to see the fight illegally there, as well as here in theUSAminutes after it’s over, or possibly even a direct stream fromAsia. The marketing profits will be nowhere near the numbers that are collected in theUS, simply because nobody in Asia will pay $45 for a fight t-shirt, while they almost sell out on fight night inLas Vegas.

In any case, Koncz mentioned that we will know more details about the venue and the opponent next week. So keep your fingers crossed that it’s a fight that makes sense and bring excitement to the entire boxing community, and not just the Pacquiao fans.
