Senator Manny Pacquiao returned to the boxing ring last month with a win over Adrien Broner in Las Vegas via unanimous points decision.
A win that was never in doubt against a 29 year old four-weight world champion (Broner) that had clearly trained hard for the fight.
Pacquiao’s superior work rate was one of the key factors that got him the win on the night against a man eleven years his junior no less.
While obviously not in his prime anymore, Pacquiao even at 40 is still more than enough for many welterweights out there and seems like he has at least two good fights left in him between this year and next if he so chooses.
PacMan uploaded this training video on Instagram which shows he’s still got plenty of speed, even at his age:
Speculation has been rife over who Pacquiao will face next or if indeed he will box on at all.
He signed this year with adviser Al Haymon and his Premier Boxing Champions series so in theory the fight that he wants in the form of a Floyd Mayweather rematch should be very easy to make.
But whether Floyd Mayweather still wants it is totally unclear at this point.
Despite the American fighter turned promoter saying he wanted it as recently as only late last year.
Keith Thurman has also gotten mentioned as a possible opponent for Pacquiao next up.
Current IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr has also intimated his interest in a possible fight with the Filipino legend.
