Middleweight beltholder Peter Quillin could soon defend his WBO title against promotional stablemate Danny Jacobs.
Pacquiao working with inventor of new energy source
Manny Pacauiao is working with an inventor from Ottawa, Canada, to bring a new energy source to his native Philippines.
The small, rolling drum-like device called the Waterotor, created by Fred Ferguson, CEO of Waterotor Energy Technologies, is capable of harnessing energy from water currents moving at just one to six miles per hour and converting into electricity.
Ferguson has invented 10 and 20 kilowatt units, adding that the latter could power about 10 homes per year at the North American standard of energy consumption.
"I think it's going to end up as a joint venture between [Ferguson] and us," said Pacquiao's advisor, Michael Koncz, according to the Ottawa Citizen.
Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 knockouts) will return to the ring on Nov. 24 in Macau (Nov. 23 in the western hemisphere) in Macau, China, against rising junior welterweight Brandon Rios (31-1, 23 KOs).
