Manny Pacquiao ‘Wants’ Floyd Mayweather JR! He Said It Himself

Manny Pacquiao wants Floyd Mayweather JR. Fact.

No one is really caring about the upcoming fight against the Filipino star and Chris Algieri on November 22. Of course, unless Pacquiao loses.

But if he does indeed win that fight as he his favored to do, Pacquiao really wants Floyd Mayweather. He told ESPN the following about the possible future fight.

“I do have one specific goal, and that is to give the boxing fans the fight they have always asked for,” Pacquiao said this week. “I want that fight [with Floyd Mayweather Jr.], too.”

Pacquiao’s upcoming fight will be on HBO Pay-Per-View from the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Macao in Macau, China. It should be a pretty interesting fight, but with Mayweather possibly on the horizon with a May 5 date still open, things could get quite interesting soon.

Let’s just hope and pray these two can finally get through all the hurdles and give boxing fans and casual fans around the world a chance to see a possible epic matchup.
