Pacquiao Attends Floyd's Exhibition Match Sunday in Japan; Floyd Stopped Asakura in 2


PhilBoxing.com




Filipino boxing king Manny Pacquiao and beautiful wife Jinky were at Saitama's Super Arena in Japan, Sunday afternoon (Sep 25), attending the exhibition show in which former opponent Floyd "Money" Mayweather ravaged and knocked out Japanese former street-fighter Mikuru Asakura in two rounds.

The exhibition clash was Floyd's second one in the boxing-loving Land of the Rising Sun. The superstar looked relaxed and smiling, appreciating people of Japan, signaling that more exhibition fights might come. We really think so.

A superbly skilled master boxer, Floyd, 45, damaged, dropped and stopped the younger Asakura with awesome power body shots and bombs to the head, hurting the strong Japanese.

Right after the KO, Floyd came to Asakura, hugging him, giving him encouraging words, a gesture appreciated by fans.

"I want to thank the whole country of Japan. What a Wonderful turnout today! Please, a round of applause to my opponent," said Floyd (with an unbeaten record of 50-0) after the fight.

"I also want to thank to the promoters for making this happen, and appreciation to my team. In addtion, thanks to my great former opponent Manny Pacquiao for attending this show today."


Floyd Mayweather Jnr drops Mikuru Asakura during exhibition match in Japan on Sep. 25, 2022.

With Pacquiao, smartly dressed in attendance, a rematch fight (exhibition or not), of Floyd "Money" Mayweather vs Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao would ever happen?

Would that be possible in the unknown future?

Well, we all know that in boxing everything is possible.

But, is this one possible? What do you think?

From his side, the much-beloved Pacman will deliver an exhibition match against former sparring partner Jaber Zayani next February at the King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It will be fantastic to see Manny on top of the ring again.

Because, truly, the former Senator and still one of the most popular athletes in the world. Perhaps still the most known fighter in boxing today, even if retired (my humble opinion).

Because what we all saw him doing during so many years was legendary.

I attended many of his shows in Las Vegas with my Philboxing brother Dong Secuya, and nothing in the world compares.

Pacman is absolutely never forgotten by boxing fans around the world who will love his exhibitions wherever they might take place.

In the meantime, our big-heart hero Manny Pacquiao will appear in an exhibition event for charity in Korea.

The awesome Sarangani-native who became the most popular boxer in the world, claiming belts in eight different world classes (a feat no one else in boxing has ever done), will be lacing his gloves against popular Korean Youtuber DK Yoo in December in Seoul, Korea.
