Pacquiao Still Hopes To Fight Mayweather Before Retiring
Fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the ultimate goal of world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao before he hangs up his gloves for good.
In a television interview, Pacquiao said his camp is still not closing doors on a mega-fight with the undefeated American boxer.
“I am waiting for that fight with Mayweather and then after that I will retire,” the eight-division world champion said.
Boxing fans have been yearning to watch the two pound-for-pound fighters battle in one ring. The most-anticipated square off, however, has yet to materialize due to disagreements between both camps.
Pacquiao said he still doesn’t agree with Mayweather’s offer of 60-40 revenue split.
He also quipped that the fight has yet to push through because the “weather” does not permit it.
Should the fight between the two world’s best boxers happen, Pacquiao said he would not let Mayweather run around the ring.
“Maybe, I will become aggressive and will throw a lot of punches at him,” he said.
Pacquiao is set to fight 30-year-old American boxer Chris Algieri on November 22 in Macao, China.
The 35-year-old boxer said he will give himself another two years in boxing where there are five bouts lined up for him including his fight in China this year.
