By Chris Williams: In a poll created by Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao, requesting fans to select his second opponent, he left it very clear he’s NOT interested infighting Errol Spence Jr. second by neglecting to list his name on the list of 4 — Floyd Mayweather Jr., Keith Thurman, Danny Garcia along with Shawn Porter — contestants at the poll.
What meaning is pretty obvious. Oh well, we knew that it was too good to be legitimate.
Who should I struggle ?
It’s interesting that Pacquiao went into the ring after Spence’s victory finished Mikey Garcia past Saturday night on March 16, also recognized that a struggle to face Spence, however now he’s maybe not citing his name. What does that say? Is Pacquiao backing out today?
As one might suppose, Mayweather Jr. could be the boxer that the boxing fans are somewhat overwhelming while the guy they would like to watch fight the 40-year-old Pacquiao next. Unfortunately, Mayweather is also the least likely fighter on the list to wind up from the ring to challenge Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs) for his WBA ‘regular’ welterweight name. Mayweather, 42, is retired, and more dedicated to his investments, and also making very great money within his exhibit fights. There’s easymoney for Mayweather to produce fighting display games, also there’s need for hard-training for him to get those type of conflicts. If Mayweather were to turn out of retirement to face Pacquiao, he’d need to teach hard for eight weeks to become ready for this struggle. It wouldn’t even be easy job, the training or the struggle for Mayweather. Together with him retired for 4 decades, he’s lost some hand speed, and it’d have been much tougher for him to beat Pacquiao for another time. Mayweather defeated Pacquiao four decades back with way of a 12 round unanimous decision by the dozens 116-112, 118-110 and 116-112 on May 2, 2015 in a struggle dubbed, ‘The struggle of the Century. ’ The Mayweather-Pacquiao fight broke payperview records that still stand today, and made both fighters a package of cash.
Together with Mayweather improbable to manage Pacquiao, another runnerup is Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs), who is the highest highest vote getter in Pacquiao’s poll in earning 12% of the vote. If Pacquiao is serious about needing to fight the guy his boxing fans are choosing for him to struggle, then Thurman is going to find the struggle with Manny automagically option. Naturally, if Pacquiao isn’t planning to fight the #2 guy from the voting in Keith Thurman, then it boils to either Danny Garcia [9% of those votes] or Shawn Porter [5%], who is to arrive last in the voting.
