It's become common knowledge throughout the boxing community that eight division world titlist Manny Pacquiao wants another shot at Floyd Mayweather's undefeated record before he hangs up the gloves for good.
Fight legend Manny Pacquiao and his promotional agency, Top Rank, should be paying close attention to next week's superfight between Gennady Golovkin and Kell Brook.
Two weeks ago, after former four division world titlist Adrien Broner was released from a 30-day incarceration, the trash-talking fighter from Cincinnati stated to ESNews that he eventually wanted to land a match-up against future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao.
Although the match-up between Manny Pacquiao and Jessie Vargas won't officially be announced until September 8 in Beverly Hills, California, the eight division world titlist has already begun preparing for the current WBO Welterweight champion at the famed Elorde Gym in Manila.
When current WBO Welterweight champion Jessie Vargas received the call from influential manager Cameron Dunkin that we would indeed be receiving the headlining slot for November 5, opposite future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao, he was ecstatic in receiving this seemingly long overdue opportunity.
Now that Manny Pacquiao has retracted his decision to retire from the sport of boxing, longtime nemesis and current promoter Floyd Mayweather Jr. was asked about the Pacman's motivation to continue fighting at age 37.
Future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao will be gracing the squared circle once again on November 5, opposite Jessie Vargas at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. And while the soon to be 38 year old fighter is seemingly well past his respective fighting prime, the Pacman is still fighting at an elite level, as was evidenced in his impressive points victory over former two-division world champion Timothy Bradley in April of this year.
After landing the biggest fight of his professional career, one would assume that Jessie Vargas would be overjoyed with the amount of exposure and financial gain that traditionally comes with facing a boxing icon and a future Hall of Famer like eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao.
Despite receiving a ton of criticism from the real bosses of boxing, the often irrational but always passionate die-hard fans of the sport, and not receiving any support from the Home Box Office, Manny Pacquiao, Jessie Vargas and mutual promoter Top Rank, Inc, will be going through with their WBO Welterweight championship bout on November 5, at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This past weekend, former two division world champion and Showtime Sports color commentator Paulie Malignaggi was at the Ford Amphitheater in Coney Island, New York, to check out fast rising Welterweight Errol Spence Jr. in action against former WBA title challenger Leonard Bundu, in an IBF 147 pound title eliminator bout.
