So who's it gonna be, Manny?
After weeks and weeks and weeks of questions, it's already pretty much a certainty that eight-division world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao is going to return to the boxing ring after retiring back in April.
So far we, know that Manny's fight is going to be at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 5th.
We're pretty much just waiting for and official opponent announcement and an official fight announcement.
A couple of weeks back, it was revealed that the list of possible opponents for the returning legend has been narrowed down to the winner of the light welterweight title unification bout between Terence "Bud" Crawford and Viktor Postol, which Crawford won convincingly or reigning WBO welterweight titleholder Jesse Vargas.
Well it looks like we could have an answer pretty soon.
Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum tweeted that he was heading to Manila next week to meet with Pacman regarding his November 5 return fight.

Will it be Crawford? Will it be Vargas? Or will it be someone we didn't see coming? It looks like we'll have our answer after next week.
