Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao asks his fans who his next fight should be out of four possible contenders.
Since his last fight against Jessie Vargas in 2016, a bout which Pacquiao won comfortably on points in Las Vegas – speculation has turned to what big fight the Filipino boxing great could land in 2017.
While it is fair to say Pacquiao is no longer in the athletic peak of his career, he is not done just yet by any stretch of the imagination (as the Vargas performance showed).
His ability in 2016 to balance a full time Senatorial government role in his home country and train full-time for a world title fight was commendable.
But the question is, could he still cut it at the very highest level of the sport against the very best?
It’s still up for debate.
He’s now asking fans who he should fight next and has singled out four names in particular:
Terence Crawford, Amir Khan, Kell Brook and Jeff Horn.
It was thought that Horn was the man next up but with Pacquiao mentioning himself recently he doesn’t even know who he is, perhaps there is not enough interest to warrant a fight.
Khan is a well known name for sure, but Crawford out of all the above would most likely represent the toughest test based on current form.
With Brook looking like he is on the verge of signing a deal to fight Errol Spence next up, perhaps Crawford or Khan might now be the two front runners for Pacquiao’s next fight.
