Manny Pacquiao 8 Division Champ is setting his sights on retirement after his April 2016 bout, for which he still hasn’t chosen an opponent for. He’s already stalled out his former sparring partner, Amir Khan, for all the talk he was doing about Floyd Mayweather being a “chicken” he pulled a similar stunt of opponent dodging. Where Mayweather at least took time to negotiate and consider the bout’s potential, Pacquiao didn’t even sit at the table long.. Now he has Terence Crawford waiting in the wings and very interested in being his last opponent.
Terence Crawford just defeated Dhierry Jean on Saturday 10/17/2015. The fight was in front of his hometown fans of Omaha, Nebraska, a place in which he grew up living the “fighter’s life” as a child. Dierry Jean in an attempt to get inside of Crawford’s head said he’d beat the *bleap* out of Crawford in front of his hometown and family. Not only did Crawford not take the threat lightly he came out and put Jean on the canvass toward the end of the 1st round. He set the tone going back and forth from conventional to southpaw stances. He showed his comfort and confidence level as he dominated the whole fight. Aside from Jean trying to load up the “HAYMAKER MACHINE”.. he stood no chance in the bout.
Now Terence Crawford has his sights set on trying to get Manny Pacquiao in the ring for the “Pac-Man’s” retirement bout. It wouldn’t be a good look for the Pac- Man in my opinion. He may be thinking the same thing since he has already stalled out Amir Khan whose also a boxer with great skill. Either way, Terence “Bud” Crawford has cemented his stance as one of the top up and coming fighters pound for pound.
