I Hope These Mayweather-Pacquiao 2 Rumors Are Groundless
The dumb boxing rumor mill is picking up steam again. Manny Pacquiao is running for Senate in his native Philippines, which means he’s trying to get a big match under his belt before campaigning begins April 9th of next year. Naturally, the media is winding up the ole’ Mayweather-Pacquiao 2 rumors, because that’s all casual boxing fans know and care about.
The first one made so much money that it’s possible, despite the anticlimax of it all, that they could square off again. It’s also possible that people won’t really care. It wasn’t a great fight, but familiar names will get some people tuning in regardless.
Pacquiao was quoted as saying, “I will fight anybody, anywhere. I am going to fight probably before the election. The election is coming next year, May, and before that I will probably have one fight.”
That’s all he said. No mention of Mayweather but the press (and I guess TPS is included there), are running with it.
Nothing definitive, but if this comes to fruition, feel free to vote with your pocketbook.
