Just before everyone thought a rematch was in place for November between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, think again.

According to Dan Rafael of ESPN.com, it looks like the fourth meeting will be going down between Pacquiao and rival Juan Manuel Marquez, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum confirms.

Arum visited with Pacquiao's adviser, Michael Koncz, on setting up the fight for the Pacman and Marquez. He really had no intentions for Bradley.

Many were wondering if Pacquiao was going to re-claim his title that was rightfully his against Bradley, as many felt that he was cheated his way out of a win in a scheme played by Arum himself. But after seeing how close and exciting the last three fights between Pacquiao and Marquez have been, the money is there for a grossing match-up.

"We're having a meeting about Manny's next fight and to get everything finalized," Arum said. "My goal is to finalize the Marquez fight, but I have to meet with (Koncz)."

The fight will be set for December 8 on HBO pay-per-view in MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Get ready, folks.
