The ultimate prize

Based on the buzz surrounding Manny Pacquiao’s in-ring plans, one would assume there’s a grand end game in store for the boxing legend.

Facing a dwindling set of options at this stage of his life as a pro fighter, Pacquiao wants no less than big-money, big-name bouts to cap off his stellar career.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. appears to still be in the cards, although Conor McGregor’s name has gotten more noise in the past few weeks.

If he’s looking for a massive paycheck to go with high-profile victories, then Mayweather and McGregor are the way to go.

Should those bouts happen and the results are favorable to him, no doubt that Pacquiao will target an even bigger prize, a loftier throne if you will.

Can Pacquiao’s camp work its magic all the way to 2022? Let’s all see.  --  Text by Dominic Menor, ABS-CBN News
