Nobody but Mayweather? Pacquiao could slowly be running out of possible foes

Manny Pacquiao's list of possible opponents for 2015 is getting slimmer each day, even as his long-awaited showdown against Floyd Mayweather remains up in the air.

If the Mayweather fight falls through anew, the most ideal fight for Pacquiao would have been with light welterweight king Danny Garcia (29-0, 17KOs).

But while Garcia has also expressed his eagerness to fight the Filipino ring icon, promoter Oscar De La Hoya is looking to pit the unbeaten fighter in a unification bout against Lamont Peterson early this year.

"I will push for Garcia vs. Peterson for the first quarter of the year, the next fight that I want to make," De La Hoya told The RING.

Should negotiations with the Mayweather camp break down yet again and Garcia-Peterson get made, Bob Arum reportedly has a mismatch lined up next for Pacquiao against light welterweight world champion Jessie Vargas (26-0, 9KOs).
