2 lucrative fights await newly-crowned WBA Welterweight champ Manny Pacquiao


PhilBoxing.com



Pacquiao arrives in Gensan Monday.

Barely two days after his knockout win against Lucas Matthysse over the weekend Manny Pacquiao is now being sought by promoters of aspiring foes in the welterweight limit of 147 pounds.


At least eight fighters in the 147-pound welterweight limit have shown interest in a possible showdown with Pacquiao. They include Keith Thurman, Errol Spence, Terence Crawford, Danny Garcia, Amir Khan, Adrien Broner, Shawn Porter and Jeff Horn.

While everyone in the list would be a competitive match for Pacquiao, two of them would stand out as the best possible choices for Pacquiao’s next fight. They are Amir Khan and Adrien Broner.

Khan and Broner have been salivating for a fight against Pacquiao for a number of years but they ended up being sidelined because of disagreement in purse sharing. Both Khan and Broner are aware of the huge revenue they can bring to the table with their talents in marketing and promoting the fight.

Broner is expert in hyping a hard-to-sell fight with his antics and bad boy image while Khan has his own bailiwick in UK that could likely fill the Wembley Stadium to the rim.

Pacquiao is done with boxing insofar as his legacy is concerned. For him, there is nothing more to prove having been crowned as the world’s only eight-division champ. His succeeding fights would likely be geared toward generating more revenues for his own MP Promotions company.


Adrian Broner.

There is a good reason why Pacquiao would pick either Broner or Khan for his next fight and it has got to do with his fight revenue generation target. Money is the key to a lucrative fight against Pacquiao at this time as he would need substantial funding to sustain his political career.

Rumors are swirling that Pacquiao is considering a higher government post in the 2022 presidential elections.

Khan and Broner are easier to sell to the fans compared to the others in the list. They also have good rapport with sportswriters and media in general.



While Crawford and Vasyl Lomachenko have been tagged as possible opponents of Pacquiao, their promoter Bob Arum now feels that Pacquiao won’t be competitive against Crawford judging from his performance against Jeff Horn.

But now that Pacquiao has regained his speed and power as shown in his TKO win against Matthysse Saturday night, Arum may now have a change of mind to justify a possible clash between Crawford and Pacquiao.

In the case of Lomachenko, there is no certainty that he will be effective in the 147-pound weight limit. Lomachenko has been fighting as a lightweight since 2016. While he looks unbeatable as a lightweight fighter, there is no guarantee he will bloat to 147 pounds overnight and still be competitive.

Still, Arum needs to reexamine his ties with Pacquiao who was earlier quoted to have said that his contract with Arum’s Top Rank Promotions has already expired.
