This is who Pac WILL NOT fight next.
Bob Arum wont put Pac in there with Jessie Vargas. Everyone trashes Vargas because he doesnt have a ton of power or killer instinct. But the kid is a very crafty boxer who can use both hands, fights smart and will give Pac fits. He was losing to Lopez untill he started ad******g and landing some crushing body shots and took the fight back.
The goal is to find someone who will make Pac look good and after Pac getting ktfo, you dont know how he will respond in there. Vargas is not that guy.
Rios wont be next either because thats too risky. Bob can still use Pac and wants to build Rios up and hopefully turn him into a star later on, but taking Pac out right now would be the end of Pac. Too soon now that Pac had decided to take a nap in front of billions of people.
Since Top Rank has mentioned the possible opponents, id put my money on Senchenko? or Humberto. Humberto is probably the front-runner. Dude has no power and prefers to scrap. Perfect choice to make Pac look great and avoid another narcoleptic episode.
