Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. 2 rematch predictions
Shane Mosley Jr. has weighed in early predicting that Mayweather would go home with the W if the two boxing legends would face-off again. Mosley said in an interview with Elie Seckbach for EsNews, “In my personal opinion, just knowing boxing, knowing how good Mayweather is, I don’t think that Manny can time him.”
With a record of 15-3, Mosley is part of the new blood of boxers carrying familiar family names back into the ring. His father, Shane “Sugar” Mosley, was defeated by Mayweather in 2010 and by Pacquiao in 2011.
The rematch, while still unconfirmed, is shaping to be one of the world boxing highlights for the incoming decade. Other fighters have also shared insights on its possible outcome. Earlier this month, Oscar “Golden Boy” De La Hoya also shared his thoughts with Seckbach on the supposed rematch saying Mayweather would win “hands down” and added, “He takes care of himself, he has a strict training regimen.” Golden Boy lost to Mayweather in 2007 and retired after he was also defeated by Pacquiao the following year.
Manny Pacquiao’s next fight could be against Danny Garcia or Mikey Garcia
Pacquiao, who will turn 41 on Dec. 17, is the one to beat for any professional boxer wanting to climb up the ladder. At his age, many have been expecting to retire soon, but the former eight-division world champion has so far done a great job at disappointing them. Instead of closing the curtains, the Pac-Man both his fights this year against much younger opponents Adrien Broner and Keith Thurman.
His recent successes only made him the most preferred opponent among younger boxers. However, Danny Garcia and Mikey Garcia have been the most commonly attached names when Pacquiao’s first match in 2020 is being discussed. Pacquiao’s opponent has yet to be decided, but boxing matchmaker and MP Promotions president Sean Gibbons recently reiterated Pac-Man’s plan to fight in March or April 2020.
