News surfaced Friday morning that famed boxer Manny Paquiao has reportedly been booked to fight the one and only Adrien Broner. While Pacquiao has stated that he is retired, Golden Boy Promotions VP Eric Gomez wanted to work out a deal to bring Pacquiao out of retirement to fight Canelo Alvarez. When Gomez tried to set the fight up, he learned an interesting bit of information, Pacquiao is already fighting Adrien Broner.

Gomez spoke to Boxing Scene about the situation:

“We’re close to finalizing an opponent. We have a short list. We’re very close. We’ll be announcing it shortly but one of the guys we were interested in was Pacquiao. We’d love to do a Pacquiao fight but from what we hear he has a deal to fight Adrien Broner.”

Broner is currently dealing with the Justice System following a robbery incident outside of a bowling alley earlier this year. Pacquiao on the other hand retired after defeating Tim Bradley in a trilogy fight, however if the above-mentioned news is true, his retirement was a short-lived one.
