MANILA, Philippines – Although Manny Pacquiao said he is not looking past his opponent Timothy Bradley, he revealed he is looking forward to a possible rematch against nemesis Juan Manuel Marquez.
Upon his arrival at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the fighting pride of General Santos City said he can still fight for at least two more years before calling it quits.
“I believe I can go on for another couple of years at least,” he said in The Daily Mail.
The 35-year-old Pacquiao is at the tail end of his colorful boxing career, but wants to prove that he can still dish it out against a younger Bradley.
The 30-year-old American suggested that Pacquiao may have already seen his best days. Pacquiao, however, said will gladly disprove this at the MGM Grand Arena on Saturday (Sunday in Manila).
“I’m not only hungry but I still have the same speed and boxing skill and I intend to continue to continue my journey,” said the fighting congressman.
If he hurdles Bradley and reclaims the WBO welterweight crown, he will be waiting for the victor of the Marquez-Mike Alvarado fight.
It;s obvious that Pacquiao wants Marquez to win.
“If Marquez is impressive in his upcoming fight I am not against fighting him again and closing the book on that one,” he said.
