The fight of the century is still to come.
There’s no better time to be a boxer.
We are at the point where we are ready to take on the fight that is boxing, says Manny Pacquiao.
“The sport is changing.
There are so many exciting, exciting new opportunities that we have to capitalize on,” Pacquia says.
And with the rise of the super fight, it’s only a matter of time before there’s a super fight in the ring.
Pacquio says it’s time to take up boxing.
“I want to see boxing become more of a mainstream sport.
I want to help the sport grow and I want the sport to be more mainstream,” he says.
But not everyone is on board with Pacquiali.
“He’s a guy who was fighting in a boxing ring before he became a professional,” says Bob Wicks.
Wicks is the president of the International Boxing Federation.
He says Pacqui is the type of fighter who can easily go on the road and train, but he’s still a professional.
“If Manny is going to be an amateur fighter, he has to have the knowledge and the training to get to the next level,” Wicks says.
That’s why Wicks thinks Pacquiati is fighting a losing battle.
“It’s not just the fact that he’s fighting in an amateur ring.
The amateur world is so much different than the professional world.
There is no boxers who are not ready to go through the amateur system,” Wickers says.
There may be some people who say the professional boxing world is already at the top of its game.
But there are many people who see the fight as a losing bet.
“Manny Pacquios fight is a fight for the amateur boxing world,” says Wicks, “and the amateur world needs Manny Pacquaises fight.”
Pacquino says he’s ready to step into the ring with anyone, no matter how big or small.
“Any fight can be the biggest and the hardest one to win.
It can be a fight between the top boxer in the world, or it can be just a fight with any of the big boxers in the game,” he explains.
Pacquaia says he has a plan for this fight.
“There’s no reason why this fight should be against anyone that has the most experience and the most talent in the sport,” Pacquaias statement reads.
The fight takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
