LAS VEGAS — Manny Pac­quiao isn’t ready to give up his night job just yet.

Pac­quiao, 37, who said be­fore his last fight in April that he would re­tire, now plans to return to the ring in Novem­ber against an op­po­nent who has yet to be se­lected. Pro­moter Bob Arum said Tues­day that Pac­quiao got per­mis­sion to take a break from his new du­ties as a sen­a­tor in the Philip­pines. It will be held Nov. 5, likely in Las Vegas.

“He likes to fight and he likes the at­ten­tion,” Arum said of Pac­quiao’s return.

Pac­quiao looked im­pres­sive in his last fight in April, re­turn­ing from a lay­off to knock down Ti­mothy Bradley on his way to a unan­i­mous decision. Af­ter the fight he wa­vered on his pre­vi­ous plans to re­tire.

“If you ask me to come back I don’t know,” Pac­quiao said. “I may be en­joy­ing re­tired life. I’m not there yet so I just don’t know.”
