Is it a dangerous fight for Manny? Or
an easy fight?

Can Pacquiao beat this guy by points or technical?
Can he take the punches @41 yrs old?

If Spence wouldn’t want him, there must be a reason, why?
I’ve rather choose McGregor with a big purse around $100 Million, run the money
to the bank, enjoy the retirement & share his winnings to needy- as what he promised!

He have to be wise by picking which way he should select;
a) boxing legacy- fighting Crawford
b) keeping his promised- half of his winning purse goes to the poor

Last fight should be memorable that people will not forget.
If you lose in your last fight, like of those Ali by Holmes, Hearns by Hagler & Barkley. Jones by Tarver
& etc etc. Did you ever forget those? It’s all in our minds-that cannot be forgotten.

That’s the agony of defeat inside them!

We, the Filipino people loved Pacquiao so much because he got a good heart- a never ending extending
his helping hand- we don’t want him to get hurt, do you? We want him of course, enjoying his retirement
together with his beautiful family, right or wrong?

Crawford is not Thurman- high risk
Garcia’s?- low reward

If Mayweather will comeback, I’ll pick him compared to Notorious & that’s the real legacy,
Win or Lose with the big money too!

Crawford is beatable, but it was Brook weak chin that did him.

GOAT Pacquiao has nothing to prove anymore

it is wise not to take Crawford.

Suppose Spence beat Garcua this December, the fight next year should be:

1st Half of Next Year:
Pacquiao v. McGregor
Spence v. Crawford

2nd Half of Next Year:
Pacquiao v. Spence/Crawford (the winner)

The reason why Pacquiao should not fight Crawford until the latter fights Spence is to punish Bob Arum for preventing Manny to fight Crawford (instead fed to Horn to benefit Crawford later) in 2017.

crawford has a long reach, but Pacman has fought guys with long reach before. Pacman's big weakness is dirty fighters ...

Bring it on ...

If Crawford does not fight Spence, since Pacquiao will be needing money for his Presidential campaign in 2022, it would be better to ask Bob Arum (again) a 70-30 sharing of the PPV in favor of Pacman.

If Top Rank does not agree, then "good luck" Crawford.

In the end, Pacquiao fights versus McGregor and versus Spence are two fights that both satisfy Manny's and PBC's coffers.

Beating Spence would equally add to Manny's legacy like against Crawford. Hence, it is really not important if he fights Terence.

Again, if Bob Arum really want the fight this 2021, he would budge the sharing for Pres. Pacquiao's campaign fund--- and Crawford's legacy too.

PS. Pacquiao is guaranteed to fight McGregor and Spence at his own whim. But Crawford has no guarantee, except if he has a heart to exchange blows with Thurman.

By the way, Crawford v. Teofimo Lopez is also a good watch.

Arum think that Crawford can easily beat Spence is a Crap.

Spence is a good boxer he show it against Micky, not only he is a slugger.


if Spence is the same fighter after a horrifying car crash , he can easily beat Crawford .


Crawford VS Spence dapat ang laban, for the the no.1 Pound for pound

Every fight of Manny is dangerous like all the boxers in this profession,
Once they step on the ring, they're not sure if they'll live or die during their fights.
Manny has face big & dangerous opponents in Margarito, Cotto, Clottey, Mosley, etc.
But the Pacman beat them all & sent some of them into retirements.
Pac can beat Crawford but by points only albeit i believe Bud will wobble once Pac hits him solidly,
Not by ko 'cause Pac is a small welter & the contenders in this division are big & can take his punches.
Besides Cotto & Matthysse whom he stopped, the rest were able to last the distance.

Crawford's style is peanut for Pacman, he's open when he throws his punches,
The semi right hook he unleashed on Brook will be countered by a right & straight left,
Brook is a damaged commodity from Golovkin's & Spence's punishments.
But turning 42 this Dec. Manny's problem will be his stamina,
His age & Jinkee's beauty are the factors of his dwindling power. :lol:
If he'll pause against Crawford like he did to Thurman, he'll be ko'd by the American. :shock:
Well, McGregor is after the huge purse & he'll not last 4 rounds against the Pacman.

What boxing legacy will Manny achieve by beating Crawford?
He has already established his legacy winning 8 division titles, he's a sure Hall Of Famer.
Manny can retire now, already a billionaire but i believe he'll continue fighting,
The $20 million prize per fight is so tempting & he can't get it easily as a Senator,
And he's not saving money for running as President, Sara Duterte is doomed to replace his Dad.
Pac is just accustomed to receiving huge purses to please his Jinkee & teenage feeling Mom Dionisia. :lol:

There are many opponents aiming for Manny's sweepstakes, he is their pot of gold,
But the question is, will Manny agree to fight during this pandemic?
I had read in one of his interviews that he won't fight without an audience & fans,
So, grandpa Arum's wish of collecting huge dollars are being hold as of now. :lol:

Agree, Brook was even leading in two judges' scorecards when he was hit on his left jaw,
It's no surprise as the British pug was already tormented before by Golovkin then Spence. :(
Right again, not advisable to face Crawford although the Pinoy phenom can beat him.
Manny loves big challenges & doesn't run away from big fights like Ledwaba, Barrera, De la hoya, etc.
So, let's see if Manny will accept a Crawford bout amid this deadly pandemic. 8)

Good suggestion bro. but how about if both Brook & Khan hit each other's chin simultaneosly ?
Both will drop like timbers on the ring canvass & how will the ref & the judges proclaim the winner?
Whoever wakes up first? Or who sleeps soundly while counting the stars? :lol: :lol:


This dude has the habit of sleeping in the ring. Maybe the canvass is softer than his house room's bed. :lol:

About money, I read somewhere Pacman is being offered 23 million to fight Crawford, a good payday ... McGregor fight might offer much more though ...

I'd like Pacman to have a tune-up first after that long layoff before fighting top boxers, so I hope McGregor fight can be made.

F**k that legacy, Manny!
Lets go for the Notorious, the EZ $.

Bud got all the advantages, youth, reach, height, quickness, fast & a very good finisher.
Pacman is slowing down, my brother- spare him.

if it was 10 yrs ago,.. either Spence & Crawford, they wont even stand a chance, they will get KO'ed instantly?

Its a very good match up... but Senator Manny won't take it.

If ..and that is if.... there is an "elimination fight" between Spence and Crawford.. that probably will or can motivate Pacquiao for another mega bucks fight as well as for another legacy pogi points to add for his collection.

My wish.... :D

Manny shouldn't take this fight. It's too dangerous for him at this time of his career.
