It is widely considered that Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao has now linked up with powerful boxing manager and adviser Al Haymon ahead of potential fights against Floyd Mayweather and Adrien Broner next year.
Pacquiao is coming off the back of an impressive win last time out and his first stoppage win in over nine years against Lucas Matthysse.
It is fair to say the win has firmly put him back in the picture for some big fights before the end of his career.
Although he was linked with possible bouts against Kell Brook and Amir Khan from the UK, more than likely, Adrien Broner and then Floyd Mayweather in 2019 will be what closes the legendary Pacquiao career.
Jeff Mayweather, uncle of Floyd Mayweather got the opinions of people at the Mayweather Boxing Gym today on who he should take on:
(Hat tip Mayweather Boxing YouTube channel):
Now that Pacquiao is with Haymon there are a whole host of options for him at welterweight if he wants to fight on.
Haymon essentially advises the majority of the top 147lbs fighters in the world.
Outside of WBO champion Terence Crawford of course.
From a purely financial point of view the two main fights out there for Pacquiao would surely be Broner and Mayweather in the new year.
Those – plus a possible Amir Khan fight.
