Manny Pacquiao Contemplates Comeback for Gervonta Davis Bout and Mayweather Exhibition
Manny Pacquiao, the eight-division champion, seems far from retiring as he explores potential comebacks to the ring. Despite his last fight and subsequent retirement in August 2021, Pacquiao has been busy with exhibition matches and Olympic aspirations.
In a recent interview with Fight Hub TV founder Marcos Villegas, Pacquiao revealed his plans for the future. He confirmed an upcoming exhibition match scheduled for December in Japan, although the opponent is still under discussion. Furthermore, there are ongoing discussions with none other than Floyd Mayweather about another exhibition match.
Pacquiao’s openness to professional bouts doesn’t stop at exhibitions; he expressed interest in a professional match against Gervonta Davis, the renowned knockout artist. Pacquiao, at nearly 45 years old, remains unfazed by the challenge, even suggesting a catchweight of 145 pounds.
While Gervonta Davis primarily competes in lower weight classes, Pacquiao’s illustrious career has seen him face and conquer numerous elite opponents across various weight divisions. From Marco Antonio Barrera to Oscar De La Hoya and Keith Thurman, Pacquiao’s legacy is etched in his ability to take on the best.
Pacquiao’s retirement was triggered by an unexpected turn of events, with Errol Spence Jr.’s injury leading to Yordenis Ugas taking the spotlight in his last fight. Now, it appears Pacquiao is far from done, keeping fans and the boxing world on the edge of their seats as he contemplates his next moves in the ring.
