It appears there’s a good likelihood dwelling legend Manny Pacquiao will interact in additional exhibition bouts over the approaching months. As followers know, the not too long ago turned 44 12 months outdated all time nice boxed YouTuber DK Yoo in an exhibition bout earlier this month in Korea. Now, in line with Australian warrior Anthony Mundine, Pac Man is in talks to face “The Man” in an exhibition bout that will happen in Papa New Guinea subsequent 12 months a while.
Mundine, final seen being violently taken out in a spherical by Michael Zerafa, retired after the 2021 loss, this the previous three-time WBA 154 pound champion’s eleventh professional defeat. However now, the 47 12 months outdated from Newtown, New South Wales says he may quickly be swapping punches with Pacquiao.
“One thing loopy simply occurred once I went to PNG (Papa New Guinea),” Mundine wrote on social media. “I’ve been requested to do an exhibition and promote the game of boxing over there [with] none apart from the eight-time world champion Manny Pac Man Pacquiao. As soon as issues are all signed on the dotted line you’ll see The Man again once more. I’m gonna have to start out coaching and sharpen the instruments and the ability field. It’s been some time.”
Pacquiao’s exhibition bout with Yoo was dubbed a “flop” by some, with the combat failing to generate as a lot fan curiosity as was hoped can be the case. How a lot fan curiosity will there be in a Pacquiao-Mundine exhibition combat? Would possibly Pacquiao even make a return to precise combating, as has been mentioned?
For now, Pacquiao appears to be going the Floyd “Cash” Mayweather route; travelling across the globe, taking exhibition bouts as he picks up good cash (which, not like Mayweather, Pacquiao then donates to worthy and charitable causes). However how a lot money will combat followers be anticipated to half with to be able to benefit from the spectacle of Pacquiao transferring across the ring with Mundine, 48-11(28)?
