Will There Be A Pacquiao vs. Thurman II?
While the boxing world ponders the idea of a Pacquiao-Mayweather sequel, Mayweather Promotions CEO is thinking a different kind of rematch.
When asked about Pacquiao’s win over Keith Thurman last month, Ellerbe was not surprised at how the fight played out but feels they need to run it back.
“Keith has a big heart, he fought his behind off tonight but Manny Pacquiao prevailed and he showed you why he is a great fighter and why him and Floyd are the two best fighters of this era,” Ellerbe told BoxingScene.com.
“I think they need to do the rematch. I think that is the fight to make,” said Ellerbe of Thurman and the Filipino Senator.
While a rematch can seem unlikely, the only options remaining for Pacquiao are fellow PBC fighters Errol Spence Jr and Shawn Porter, who face off this September in a unification fight, or Top Rank fighter Terence Crawford, who holds the WBO welterweight title.
