    Pacquiao’s already done and accomplished so much in this sport. I’d say he’s at the stage where he can do whatever he wants. Mikey Garcia definitely isn’t my first choice of people I’d like to see Pacquiao in there with, but at this stage of Pacquiao’s career I’ll support any fight he takes. He has nothing to prove anymore. He’s locked in as an all time great. I don’t blame the man for taking safer fights, at 40 with all the wear and tear and wars, he deserves this

    it's like he purposely chose the 'wrong' Garcia to fight

    I hate to admit it but I would watch Pac fight practically anyone, he gives us old guys hope that it’s not over!

    Right, because everyone would turn down a fight with Pac to fight Lomachenko.

    I've wanted to see Pac vs Danny for years now. Looks like we may never see it.

    Its not really a safe fight. I don't like Garcia at 147 either but Pac isn't prime Errol Spence either. It'd be a more competitive fight than that was.

    I agree it’s not a 100% safe fight for Manny, but compared to some of the other opponents that fans are expecting Pacquiao to take on, it’s a lot safer in comparison to the likes of Errol Spence, Terence Crawford, maybe even Danny Garcia or Ugas even too? Just naming off top ranked guys at WW

    Just being realistic- No PBC vs Top Rank fights will happen anytime soon so that eliminates Crawford and Lomachenko for Pac and Garcia respectively. Everyone likes to pretend otherwise but we all know the history there.

    I agree though, there are tougher fights that could be made.

    I do think Danny Garcia vs Crawford could happen, because it's not something where I think a PPV split would be necessary as long as the upfront is fine for Garcia. But any major fights, yeah, it's not going to happen.

    That said, doesn't PBC/Top Rank already have a signed contract for Wilder/Fury 2? So that's one fight

    Yeah but we went from talk of immediate rematch to watching Fury fight tomato cans for two years and Wilder fight some guy he already KO'd. Arum will make fights when he sees his stars fading, not when they are on top.

    Kind of an odd fight. It sounds okay but I'm not paying for it.

    Money might have something to do with it. Mikey will earn his beating well and then he can retire. Can't see what's left for him after Manny makes him look very ordinary.

    Good point, he can rake it in comparatively. And money counts.
    But still, Mikey had a hell of a career going until he saw Loma. Then it was like he lost his will to continue in the sport?
    Hmm...

    I kind of agree but that’s where he’s fighting now.
    He was outgunned and skilled by Errol and the size had something to do with it.

    But that’s the best or I would say second best we in Errol that he lost to

    No shame in that loss. Paquiao ismt Spence especially at 45.

    Mikey can win this fight. And if I had to bet I would take Mikey.
    I never bet on the old man in prizefighting.

    What would you prefer? Mikey going to 140 against who?
    Take a huge pay cut? That wouldn’t make sense for him

    If anyone can get a oaquaio fight they better take advantage of that opportunity.

    Pac vs Mikey is OK, not crazy about Garcia vs anyone else there.

    Would much prefer Garcia at 140.
