MANILA, PHILIPPINES—Many are still waiting for a Pacquiao-Mayweather rematch, two years after their disappointing bout which favored Mayweather via unanimous decision in twelve rounds. In an interview, the reigning WBO welterweight and eight-division boxing world champion, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao said that a rematch is still possible as long as he and Mayweather can still fight.
Pacquaio is set to fly in Australia this weekend to fight Jeff “The Hornet” Horn on June 2. His conditioning team said that he is already at his one hundred percent condition.
Meanwhile, Pacman fans are requesting for a real money fight against Mayweather. they are saying that Pacquiao was not in a good condition when he fought the unbeaten American fighter, so they want another bout to see who is really the pound-per-pound king.
Pacquiao’s party has disclosed that there were several talks and transactions, but there wasn’t really any serious commitment.
Meanwhile, Mayweather is also preparing for his comeback fight against two-division mixed martial arts superstar UFC champion, Conor McGregor. The super fight is expected to beat the 2015’s bout between Pacquiao and Mayweather.
McGregor has announced way before that he would like to fight the Philippine boxing legend if ever Mayweather refuses to fight him.
When asked about his favored fighter, Pacquiao said that it will favor his rival because it is boxing match. On the other hand, he said that if the fight is in MMA, McGregor will surely win.
So, are we going to witness another super fight between the competitors? For now, we just have to wait as they both face their own opponents for the coming months.
Pacquiao will be fighting Horn in Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. While Mayweather-McGregor bout will be on August 26 in Las Vegas. We just have to put our fingers crossed and enjoy the rivalry between the two boxing legends.
