Floyd Mayweather Jr. says Manny Pacquiao continues to fight because he has to

A little over five years after the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. bout, people still wonder if there's ever going to be a sequel.  Since that highly-anticipated 2015 bout between arguably two of boxing's biggest stars, Pacquiao and Mayweather's careers have gone in vastly different directions.  Following his 12-round loss to Mayweather Jr., Pacquiao beat Timothy Bradley in a trilogy bout, retired for half a year, and then came back to beat Jessie Vargas and capture the WBO Welterweight World Championship. Pacquiao would lose that title to Jeff Horn in a controversial decision in Australia, before bouncing back by beating Lucas Matthysse to become a world champion once again. Just last year, Pacquiao put on two impressive performances in his title defense over Adrien Broner and his WBO (Super) Welterweight World Championship-clinching win over Keith Thurman. Now, at 41 years old, Pacquiao is still in the conversation of top opponents for welterweight stars like Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr.  After beating Pacquiao, Mayweather Jr. wrapped his career up with a win over Andre Berto to retire undefeated in 2015. Two years later however, Mayweather Jr. came back and claimed his 50th professional boxing win after defeating UFC star Conor McGregor by tenth-round TKO in a big-money superfight. Save for a three-round exhibition bout against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan on New Year's Eve of 2018, Mayweather has remained retired.  So whenever Pacquiao earns a big win or whenever Mayweather does anything remotely related to a boxing ring, rumbles of a rematch always begin to appear.  Asked if he was interested in a rematch however, Mayweather sort of shot the idea down.  Asked if a rematch against McGregor was on his radar, Mayweather told rapper Fat Joe that he was more interested in fighting guys who has whole countries behind him.  "I’m a businessman now. I already proved, years and years ago, that I was the best, period. I’m talking pound-for-pound, I already proved all of that," Mayweather Jr. said. "At my age now, I’m a businessman, so I’m not gonna be out there competing and fighting guys that only got a small city behind them. You got a lot of American fighters that are good, but they got little cities behind them. I’mma fight guys that got a whole country behind them. So, I know I can demand and get what I want to get."  "So that's Pacquiao?" Fat Joe responded, looking for clarification.  Mayweather Jr. responded by saying that he made more in the McGregor fight.  (READ: Pac-Mac at super middleweight? Conor McGregor has interesting response to Manny Pacquiao's birthday greeting) "Listen, I made more with McGregor," Mayweather Jr. said. "My faculties and everything that I got comes first. We just talked about “Your health is your wealth”, and that’s why I got this towel on, I was working out today." "Money" followed up by saying that the difference between himself and Pacquiao is that Pacquiao needs to keep fighting.  "Pacquiao fight because he have to. Once again, I fight if I want to, so there’s a difference."  Was that a no? Was it a maybe? What did Mayweather Jr.'s statements mean?  Mayweather Jr. also hit back at those saying that Pacquiao wasn't in his prime when they met back in 2015.  "We keep on saying ‘at our prime’, I’m older than Pacquiao by two years. We keep on saying ‘in your prime’. When I beat Pacquiao, they say he wasn’t in his prime. I’m older than [him]. When I fought Oscar de la Hoya, me and Oscar, we both was in our thirties. They keep on…no matter what happens, it’s never good enough for anyone." Right now, it appears that the 50-0 fighter is happy staying retired, but he did share that he has something cooking alongside Japanese promotion Rizin for this year.         .....»»

Boxing: John Riel Casimero knocks out Cesar Ramirez to retain Interim WBO crown

Filipino boxing star and three-division world champion John Riel “Quadro Alas” Casimero dominated Mexico’s Cesar “Perico” Ramirez en route to a tenth-round knockout win to retain the WBO Interim Bantamweight World Championship, Saturday evening. The Casimero-Ramirez tussle was the marquee attraction of the Manny Pacquiao Championship Boxing offering at the San Andres Sports Complex in Malate, Manila. Casimero was simply too much for the Mexican challenger as he outclassed Ramirez and put the former WBC FECOMBOX Super Bamtamweight Champion down on multiple occassions leading up to the tenth-round finish. The smaller Casimero uncorked a solid left uppercut and followed up with a vicious right hook that landed flush on the jaw, sending Ramirez’s mouthpiece flying before the Mexican dropped to the canvas. With the win, Casimero extended his winning streak to four straight and now sets up a WBO Bantamweight World Championship unification bout against reigning titleholder Zolani Tete of South Africa.  In the co-main attraction, former Olympian Charly Suarez improved to 3-0 in his professional career with a first-round KO win over Virgil Puton.    .....»»
