After Manny Pacquiao's two round destruction of Ricky Hatton on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, promoter Bob Arum told reporters that Pacquiao's next fight will likely come against WBA welterweight champion Miguel Cotto in either November or December. He said Pacquiao will be in New York to sit ringside at Madison Square Garden for Cotto's fight against Joshua Clottey.

Reports from Team Pacquiao say that Canadian advisor Mike Koncz is on his way to the US to relay a message to Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum that Manny Pacquiao has agreed to face Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico on Nov. 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight will be at 145 lbs.

This is going to be a good fight. Cotto is a lot bigger than Manny but not nearly as fast or powerfull. Still I like Cotto better and I hope he wins.

Kobe: Manny will win over Cotto

MANILA - Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant has picked Manny Pacquiao to win over Miguel Cotto in their scheduled slugfest this coming November.

“Manny all the way... I don't think that's even a question,” said Bryant, who is currently in Manila for the first stop of the Nike 2009 Asia Tour.

Bryant, who steered the Los Angeles Lakers to multiple National Basketball Association championships and is NBA’s 2008 Most Valuable Player, said that he’d like to watch Pacquiao in action.

“I've never seen him fight in person, but if I don't have a game in his next fight, I will be there,” said Bryant.

Pacquiao has reportedly given the nod to fight Cotto, the reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight champion, at 145 pounds.

Bryant, also known as the “Black Mamba,” has recently teamed up with Filipino superstar for a photo shoot promoting Nike.

He said he admired Pacquiao for his accomplishments inside the ring, and that they share a passion for sports.

“I love him because I enjoy being around people who are just as competitive, have the same passion and work ethic… I watch him perform in boxing and he truly loves what he does. He loves the sport,” said Bryant.
