Manny Pacquiao recently won the WBO title in a decision over Timothy Bradley Jr., and it seems that the lightning quick boxer is not quite done competing professionally.
”I knew I had to do more in this fight than I did in the last fight,” said Pacquiao after the win. “I think I can fight for two more years.”
We will have to see if Pacquiao can continue to box at a high level, but it seems that the Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight that all had been hoping for will never happen. I believe this is one of the reasons that the American public has not latched onto boxing like previous generations have. It is sometimes just a little bit too political, and I think the younger demographics sense that they are not always being sold the best product possible.
If Pacquiao continues to box, then he will certainly add quite a lot more to his coffers and this fight netted him a cool 20 million dollars. Here is hoping that there is no residual head damage from all the years of pummeling, but at the very least, his family will not have to worry about money for some time to come.
This is a rare appearance on the MMA page for this writer, but I am hoping to broaden my audience in the next couple months. Hopefully you all will be down for the ride, because I definitely am. Thanks for reading.
