PACQUIAO SAYS HE WON'T FIGHT EXHIBITION MATCHES, DOES NOT THINK OF A MAYWEATHER REMATCH


PhilBoxing.com




Following Floyd Mayweather's short and easy knockout of Japan's kickboxing champion Tenshin Nasukawa, Manny Pacquiao declared that has no plans to imitate Mayweather in joining exhibition fights. The world's former pound-for-pound king cashed in $9 million for an effortless more than a minute demolition of the Japanese who practically fought pro boxing for the first time.

Pacquiao was emphatic that he would not engage in any similar undertaking pitting him against inexperienced fighters. "I won't do that. If I'm Floyd I wouldn't do that," he said. "Exhibition match where you just knock him out. That's not good for the fans."

* * *

Both boxing legends met at the Staples Center on Tuesday night in Los Angeles during the Clippers game, adding rumors to a second fight to take place in July. But Pacquiao was quick to react: "I'm not thinking about Floyd Mayweather, my plan is one [fight] at a time. I'm not planning for future plans."

* * *

The Filipino senator signed an agreement with Al Haymon, Mayweather's adviser, last year. The two boxing celebrities met in Tokyo and agreed on a rematch. "We'd been planning for Manny to be at the game for two weeks," Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions said. "I never even thought about Floyd going to the game. He always goes to the games, his plane is like a taxi; he gets on his plane anytime he wants."

"Who doesnt want Mayweather? He's the money man," Pacquiao said when asked about the rematch. “At the age of 40, it’s hard to think about future fights,” he told Reuters. “Just one at a time.”

* * *

After more than eight years without a knockout victory, Pacquiao was back in deadly KO form last July when he stopped WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse in a seventh-round knockout in Kuala Lumpur to wrest the title. “I still have it,” Pacquiao declared.

* * *

Broner was beleaguered by several legal problems, facing sexual misconduct charges in two separate cases that resulted last year in Atlanta and Cleveland. Pacquiao does not think Broner’s legal distractions will affect his preparations for their 12-round WBA world welterweight title fight.

* * *

“I don’t want to put myself higher than him or [more] righteous than him,” Pacquiao told reporters at the Wild Card Boxing Club. “Of course, I’m praying that he will resolve his problems and he will get through his problems. I just want to share a good life outside the ring [with Broner].”

* * *

When asked his comment on Broner aiming to knock him out with a counter punch like Juan Manuel Marquez, Pacquiao replied: “Yes, that’s what he’s thinking but I’m ready for that. I don’t think that’s gonna work."

* * *

Pacquiao said he is not taking Broner lightly. “Right now I’m not thinking about my next fight. What I’m thinking is Adrien Broner because my plan is one at a time," he added. "If [Floyd] comes back to boxing and if he wants a rematch, there’s a rematch. It’s up to him, but right now my focus is for this fight because I’m not taking blindly or underestimating Broner.”
