AmericaManny Pacquiao’s coach, Freddie Roach, revealed that the Filipino boxer wants to fight Floyd Mayweather once.
“We want to fight Mayweather again. But not a show fight. That’s not Pacquiao’s style. He has many boxing fans, and that’s what we’re after.” Roach said to Sky Sports August 19th.
In 2015, Pacquiao fought Mayweather in the unification of the world welterweight championships (WBC, WBO, WBA). After 12 rounds without knockouts, Mayweather won by 118-110, 116-112, 116-112.
This is the most expensive fight in professional boxing history. Revenue from ticket sales to the ring and more than 3 million pay TV subscribers is estimated to total $400 million. The two fighters are entitled to a 6-4 split, with Mayweather receiving at least $180 million, and Pacquiao pocketing no less than $120 million.
Coach Roach also revealed that Pacquiao could fight with ultra-lightweight champion Josh Taylor. “That fight can happen, that’s for sure,” he said. Fight with real fighters, challenge the best.”
In the match against Jose Ramirez on May 23, Taylor won with a tight score of 114-112, 114-112, 114-112, to win two more WBC and WBO ultra-lightweight belts of the opponent, and at the same time preserved. the WBA, IBF belts that he holds.
Taylor then also left open the possibility of fighting with Pacquiao. He told Sky Sports: “The fight with Pacquiao is great. How many people can go up to their idols and win. Not much. Pacquiao is a champion, a nice guy, always trying. trying to help others. Pacquiao is a gentleman and has a strong fighting style.”
Pacquiao is preparing for the WBA welterweight title match with Yordenis Ugas on August 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This legendary boxer left open the possibility of retirement after this fight to focus on his political career. “All my plans are top secret. I’m training and challenging myself every day, with the goal of giving my best because the Ugas game could be my last fight,” Pacquiao told Betway Insider.
The last time Pacquiao fought in the ring was on July 20, 2019, when he defeated Keith Thurman by referee points. After 12 rounds without knock-out, the Filipino boxer was won by two referees with a score of 115-112. The other referee ruled Thurman won 114-113. It was Pacquiao’s 62nd win in 71 fights. He has only lost twice during his career, to Mayweather in 2015 and Jeff Horn in 2017.
Pacquiao is the only boxer in history to be world champion in eight different weight classes. After defeating Thurman, the boxer born in 1978 set another record when he became the oldest boxer to win the welterweight belt of one of the four largest boxing organizations (WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF).
Mayweather announced his retirement after his victory over Conor McGregor in 2017. But then, the veteran boxer nicknamed “Lonely and defeated” fought two more shows – winning kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan in 2018, and American YouTuber Logan Paul on June 7th.
