Pacquiao names his terms for rematch with old rival Floyd Mayweather
Manny Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach has revealed that his fighter would want any rematch with Floyd Mayweather to be a “professional bout”
The Filipino legend prepares to take on late-replacement Yordenis Ugas in his ring return on Saturday night in Las Vegas, after original opponent Errol Spence was forced to withdraw from the hotly anticipated contest with an eye injury.
And despite the distraction of his latest test in the ring, Pacquiao has spoken openly about his rivalry with Mayweather in recent weeks after his exhibition clash with YouTube star Logan Paul.
But the six-weight world champion’s trainer has revealed that Pacquiao would want any renewed rivalry to be a ‘professional fight’ and also revealed another potential future option as Josh Taylor.
“We would like to fight Mayweather one more time,” Pacquiao’s Hall of Fame trainer Roach told Sky Sports.
“But exhibitions? No. Manny is not into that.”
“We are just going one fight at a time.”
Mayweather was the victor when the pair met in 2015, one of only two career defeats for Pacquiao.
