Pacquiao open to Gervonta Davis fight

Very few fighters will ever achieve what Manny Pacquiao has in the sport of boxing. Pacquiao, who last stepped into the boxing ring in August 2021 when he lost to Yordenis Ugas, is entertaining yet another comeback.

Now at the age of 44-years-old, the legendary prizefighter has expressed interest in a potential future fight with Gervonta "Tank" Davis. In a recent FightHub TV interview, Pacquiao expanded upon this in Saudi Arabia this past weekend as he spoke to FightHub TV. 

“Davis is a good fighter,” Pacquiao said to FightHub TV. “If he wants [to] and comes up to [welterweight, then we can fight.”

Pacquaio even gave a grace period in which he stated that he'd be willing to face Davis at a catchweight for such a mega-fight.

“145 [lbs], maybe,” said Pacquiao. “It’s not a problem for me, I’m an experienced fighter.”

Pacquiao, who holds a record of 62-8-2 and 39 knockouts, has been rumored to possibly face Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout which has been gossiped about for Japan as well as a farewell Showtime boxing telecast, but neither has been validated in any capacity. The fight could happen as soon as in December of this year, or as late as next year. With another option being it simply doesn't happen at all.

Add to the fact that Pacquiao has also shared an interest in fighting for the Philippines in the Olympics next summer in Paris. As Pacquiao explained earlier this year fighting in the Olympics is something he has always wanted to do.

Given the magnitude of Manny Pacquiao's events, it appears that Pacquiao would like to have a few more meaningful fights, and potential bouts against an old rival as well as a generational talent might be next on deck for the future hall-of-famer.
