Manny Pacquiao to return to the ring in November
Manny Pacquiao now has a set return date for when he will fight for the first time since his knockout defeat by Juan Manuel Marquez back in December. Pacquiao will be fighting outside of the United States for the first time since 2006 as he will fight Brandon Rios in Macau, China. The Rios Vs. Pacquiao fight is set for November 23rd (November 24th in China) and will be fought at the Welterweight limit of 147 lbs.
The time difference between the United States and China is 12-hours meaning that the actual fight will take place in the morning in China so the Pay-Per View can take place in the United States at night.
Both men are coming off defeats and their records stand as this at the current moment;
Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs), Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs).
