According to Ronnie Nathanielsz at BoxingScene.com, Manny Pacquiao will make his decision today on whether to fight Juan Manuel Marquez or Timothy Bradley on December 8, giving a thankful end to the speculation (or "speculation") process of the last few days.

Last night, Bob Arum said there would be a press conference next Tuesday to announce the fight, but it was expected we'd learn the opponent officially before then, and we will.

All signs are pointing to a fourth fight with his great rival, Marquez, with Freddie Roach confirming to ESPN Deportes last night that there is an offer on the table. We've also heard that TV Azteca in Mexico basically said the fight was a done deal last night.

Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO) is 2-0-1 against Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KO), with their last fight coming in November 2011, and resulting in a debated majority decision victory for Pacquiao.

Pacquiao last fought on June 9, losing to Bradley via even more controversial decision, while Marquez was last seen on April 14, beating Serhiy Fedchenko in Mexico.
