Manny Pacquiao wants to fight the winner of the Crawford-Spence Jr. fight: “I will watch”
Pacquiao wants to use this exhibition fight as a way to decide if he fights professionally again.
Retired professional boxer Manny Pacquiao spoke about the possibility of facing the winner of the bout betweenTerence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr., hinting at a possible unretirement.
Pacquiao is currently 43 years old and his last professional fight was against Yordenis Ugas, which he lost in the judges scorecards, but the bout was originally supposed to be against Errol Spence Jr., however an unfortunate injury to an eye saw him having to abandon the match just a couple of weeks away from entering the ring.
Pacquiao lost the fight against Ugas allegedly due to the cramps he suffered in his calves towards the end of the bout, and judging by the scorecards he may have, as the Cuban boxer just won by less than four rounds in all of them.
