Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is still not retiring from boxing.

The 8-division title holder and boxing legend wants the top boxers in the welterweight division after his demolition of former Welterweight champion Keith Thurman.

Currently, Pacquiao is drawing interest in fighting Danny Garcia or Errol Spence Jr., the number one ranked welterweight today.

His performance against the younger and faster Thurman surprised a lot of boxing analysts, describing Pacquiao aging like fine wine in his career.

Pacquiao’s victory against Thurman opened a lot of discussion as to whom the boxing legend would fight next. Right now, talks are abuzz as to how Pacquiao would match up against Spence, the number one welterweight.

Bigger and as technical as Pacquaio, numerous boxing analysts said that Spence would dominate Pacquaio and force him to retire while others say that Pacquaio has a good chance if he avoids fighting at Spence’s pace.

According to Sean Gibbons, president of Manny Pacquaio (MP) promotions, they are already under negotiation with the Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) to arrange Pacquiao’s next fight.
