Pac­quiao has un­fin­ished busi­ness against May­weather

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

FLOYD MAY­WEATHER (car­i­ca­ture) ac­cepted an in­vite to watch Filipino icon Manny Pac­quiao’s WBO ti­tle fight on Satur­day, leav­ing many won­der­ing if a re­quest to step back in the ring would be next.

May­weather had a front row seat at the Thomas & Mack Cen­ter in Las Ve­gas to watch Pac­quiao eas­ily beat for­mer cham­pion Jessie Var­gas with a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion vic­tory.

Pac­quiao said yes­ter­day that he is ea­ger to avenge his 2015 loss to May­weather and he doesn’t feel the con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions would be nearly as ac­ri­mo­nious as they were for the first fight, which be­came the rich­est in box­ing his­tory.

“Not only for my­self, but the fans of box­ing want the re­match then why not?” Pac­quiao told a group of re­porters at his lux­ury suite at the Wynn ho­tel and casino. “We can eas­ily talk about that it is not a prob­lem.

“Be­cause we now have di­rect con­tact to them it would be eas­ier to talk about when there will be a re­match.”
