Who's next for Pacman?

DALLAS, Texas — The identity of Manny Pacquiao’s next opponent would be known after the May elections in the Philippines.

“I will decide who to fight next after the elections,” said Pacquiao moments after beating Joshua Clottey of Ghana in a 12-round lopsided decision Saturday at the Cowboys Stadium.

Pacquiao is running for the lone congressional seat of Sarangani province against a scion of a wealthy and influential clan in Roy Chiongbian in May.

Top Rank chief Bob Arum, who holds the promotional rights over Pacquiao, went to the reporters at ringside and told them “it’s Pacquiao’s call when to fight next.”

Still, Arum is eyeing a return to the ring for the Filipino star in November.

And if it happens in November, the leading candidate would not necessarily be Floyd Mayweather, who has a May 1 date with Shane Mosley.
