Senator Manny Pacquiao’s dominant win against American boxer Adrien Broner showed that the Filipino legend still has what it takes to take on elite fighters even at the age of 40.
KAMI presents to you a list of seven boxers who Manny might fight next later this year.
According to fight fans and experts, some of these boxers could be beaten by an old Manny but some of them would prove too much for the aging all-time great.
1. Floyd Mayweather
Many observers are saying that Manny’s fight against Broner and Floyd’s exhibition match against the Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nakusawa were made in order to hype their rematch.
The first fight ended in a unanimous decision win for Mayweather. However, Manny said that the second fight’s outcome will be different.
2. Keith Thurman
After beating the tough fighter Josesito Lopez to retain his WBA Welterweight Title during the weekend, Keith called out Manny Pacquiao for a unification bout.
Keith seemed rusty in the ring after a 20-month layoff so Manny definitely has a chance against the 30-year-old American.
3. Terrence Crawford
Considered as the number 2 best pound-for-pound fighter today, many experts believe that an old Manny does not have a chance against him.
Terrence is being handled by Manny’s former promoter, Bob Arum.
4. Errol Spence
Errol is also in the top 10 pound-for-pound list and is considered as the best welterweight today. His size and age advantages over Manny are being cited by experts as the biggest reasons why the Pinoy legend would lose to him.
5. Mikey Garcia
The undefeated champion in four weight classes has gone up to the welterweight division to challenge Errol Spence. If he wins that fight, a bout with Manny would even make his name bigger than ever.
6. Amir Khan
Amir has an upcoming fight with Terrence Crawford, which is a bout many experts are expecting him to lose. But due to his large fan base, Amir will always be a candidate to fight Manny because he can bring in the cash but with a lower risk for the Filipino boxer.
7. Shawn Porter
The WBC welterweight champion used to be a sparring partner of Manny. This fight is winnable for Manny but it would still be difficult due to the aggressiveness and high work-rate of Shawn.
