The World Boxing Association (WBA) Super World Welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2) is preparing for his 72nd professional fight after his last fight with American Keith Thurman in 2019 at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas winning the WBA strap in the process.
Though the Philipino boxing legend has been away for 19 months, he’s still among the top tier boxers in the welterweight division burning hot to face any opponent despite being 42 years.
The Senator is yet to choose his next opponent as his management is close to settling with Mikey Garcia (WBC Diamond titlist) even though the options are still wide open. The list of available options the eight-division champion could face can be shortlisted down to five; Terence Crawford, Ryan Garcia, Mikey Garcia, Conor McGregor and Errol Spence Jr.
In a recent quote by the PacMan via ABS-CBN, he revealed how far they’ve progressed on getting a deal done for him to get to work
“We’re leaning towards [fighting] Mikey Garcia, but we’re also talking to [Terence] Crawford… What’s important is I’m ready”
