Manny Up For Rematch If Floyd Unretires
Keith Thurman’s trash talk and energy leading up to his July 20th fight against Manny Pacquiao may succeed in fueling the 40-year-old senator to end Thurman’s undefeated record.
“I’m so motivated for this fight for all of the trash talk he’s saying and I want to prove him wrong,” said Pacquiao as a guest on Ahora o Nunca. “The most dangerous thing is when you’re not ready and in condition.”
“At this age, at 40, there is a level of adjustment in terms of body recovery, unlike when you were young you pushed your body in training day by day, you recovered at night,” said Pacquiao in a seperate interview with ESPN.
“At this stage, where you are strong, it is difficult to recover the next day, but right now, the speed is there, the power, the speed … by the grace of God.”
Regarding famous trash talkers who have faced Pacquiao, when asked if he would want a rematch of his 2015 loss to Floyd Mayweather, Pacquiao said if the undefeated boxer wants to come back, he’d welcome it.
“I do not have an idea [if that fight will ever happen], I’m active in sports and he’s retired, if he comes back and decides to fight me – I’m here,” Pacquiao said.
