🚨 Manny Pacquiao coach names shock potential opponent for his return

Posted by

Manny Pacquiao last fought in 2021 where he suffered a decision loss to Yordenis Ugas.

The ‘Pac-Man’ recently had his Olympic dreams dashed when it was announced that the upper age limit of 40 will not be changed to allow him to compete.

He also announced a rematch with Floyd Mayweather was in the works but as of yet nothing seems concrete.

But speaking to Lucky Block Casino, Justin Fortune, who has worked as the boxing legend’s strength and conditioning coach has revealed who he would like him to face should he return to the ring and it’s not ‘TBE’.

He said: “I don’t want to see Pacquiao-Mayweather 2, that would have been a great fight around a year or two after the first fight, when it was fresh in people’s memory, I’d rather see Pacquiao return against Crawford, that’s a massive payday and guess what, it’s a 50-50 fight.

“Manny has a 50 percent chance of winning because he’s still a freak athlete and it wouldn’t take much to pull him into shape. Even though he’s slowed down a bit, he’s still twice as fast as anyone out there. The power he has is a gift from god, he hasn’t lost his power.

“Manny has never ducked anyone, he’s always fought the best, and not saying Mayweather’s not the best but he’s old, I’d prefer Manny to come back and prove himself against a current world champion like Crawford.”

It would be a huge ask for Pacquiao to defeat one of the sport’s current pound-for-pound stars, especially being inactive for so long.
