Manila, Nov 13: Philippine boxing icon Manny Pacquiao plans to be back in the ring by March next year but the chances of a rematch with current WBC super featherweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez depend entirely on money.

Pacquiao, attending the WBC's annual convention, drew with Marquez in an all-action bout in 2004. He put the Mexican on the floor three times in the first round but failed to finish him off.

Pacquiao said he would be willing to fight anyone at super featherweight or he could even move up to lightweight, but added that he would demand the lion's share of the purse in any fight with Marquez.

''In reality, I do want to get more than him,'' said Pacquiao, adding that confirmation of his next opponent would come in December.
