Manny Pacquiao will fight an unnamed opponent on Dec. 1 according to his advisors, reports ESPN.com.

Pacquiao was originally supposed to fight on Nov. 10. but has run into issues with his re-election campaign for the congressional seat he has in the Philippines.

"Manny has to be in the Philippines for the filing of his candidacy in October, and I don't want to interrupt his training, nor does Manny," Pacquiao's advisor Michael Koncz said. "If he fights on Nov. 10, it would interrupt his training because he would have to go back to the Philippines. You lose two days going there, and it's a long trip in the middle of camp. We don't want to have any excuses when he fights.
Pacquiao's (54-4-2, 38 KOs) last bout was against Timothy Bradley on June 9. He lost his welterweight title via split decision.
