Los Angeles - Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao is in talks for a fourth fight against rival Juan Manuel Marquez, the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday.

The Times, citing sources close to the ongoing negotiations, said Pacquiao's next fight will be December 8 in Las Vegas and Marquez is a likely opponent.

Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs) was also in negotiations for a rematch against Tim Bradley but that fell through and he is now considering Marquez.

Pacquiao defeated Mexico's Marquez in a majority decision in November, the latest in a string of hotly-contested close fights between the warriors.

The Times said boxing promoter Bob Arum plans to have each fighter sign the deal on Tuesday in Los Angeles when they appear for a news conference.

Pacquiao is 2-0-1 against Marquez.
