Pacquiao Studying Tape, Then Will Decide on Next

Manny Pacquiao will be doing his thing in Israel, on a peace, love and politics tour, and studying tape of three potential foes, and the world will know who he’s fighting in his next, and maybe last fight, within a week or two.

That’s what Terence Crawford’s manager, Cameron Dunkin was told, and Dunkin is thinking his guy might get the call.

Or might not.

“Does Manny want to deal with this young, strong kid,” he wonders.

Maybe better to sign for a third fight with the devil of a test Manny knows, in Tim Bradley.

Or international attraction Amir Khan, Dunkin would understand if Khan got the gig, because of his name value. “Regardless, I like Crawford’s attitude. If I get the fight, great, if not, we fight on,” said Dunkin of the Nebraskan’s proper perspective on what could coalesce as his signature bout.

We should know within two weeks, though Manny does operate on Pacquiao time, seen through a prism of serenity which means he doesn’t get too wired up about deadlines and constraints placed upon him by others. In other words, hurry up and wait…

Really! Da Manny ain't waiting on T-Craw. So T-Craw should not be waiting for Da Manny. Holla!

i think that manny should really Challenge himself in the last one,like in his prime when he was mopping up the floor with the best of the different weight divisions.i haven't thought about who because this just came to me but im sure theres a big name with little risk that he could plunder a title from. have canelo go down to 154 and fight him. he's safe for a mover & angler like pacquiao at that weight and he's really lazy for a young guy, i think hes to impressed with himself,a legend in his own mind so to speak.. cotto just about beat him , it could of went either way actually .. that's my thoughts on the " PI Hurricane"


-SouthPawFlo :

I'll go with the fight against Khan or have Manny Beat on Provo since he left roach to improve his defense

It is very doubtful that anything go down with the lying, delusional diva Amir Khan. Da haps are a likely refarce -- I mean rematch -- with Money May or Tim Bradley. A dance with the Siberian traitor -- I mean Rocky -- is a long shot. Holla!

I think Top Rank is going to push very hard for Crawford as will HBO. I see the pot being sweetened to try to get Pacquiao to bite on the fight. Pac is at the end of the line and HBO/Top Rank want to use his name to build their next star in Crawford. Right now, alone Crawford cannot stand on a PPV card by himself but beating Pac would go a long way in establishing his name among the general sports fans. Whether Pac takes the bait and the challenge remains to be seen. If I were managing him, no way would I advise him to fight Crawford. Instead, I push for Khan who already has a name in the sport and can still generate a big payday for my guy. The Roach storyline also helps sell the fight. Plus, Khan is not as slick or skilled (particularly defensively) as Crawford so its a very winnable fight for Pac (I'd probably make Pac a solid 3-1 favorite whereas Crawford would be a slight favorite in my opinion against Pac in the eyes of the book). If Khan's demands are too great, Bradley is plan B. Its not as easy to sell but they can play the Atlas card that Bradley has changed and can do something different the 3rd time. Again, its also a very winnable fight for Pac. Provodnikov fight is not happening. Though I wouldn't mind seeing that myself.

Pac should pull a Canelo and tell him to come down to 150.

Pac knocks Khan out and beats Crawford who is very crafty though very young and used to smaller guys. Tcraw has not seen anything like Pacs speed and power. Even Floyd said be careful.

I'm riding with cha on that. It is just a lot of Pac hate breaking out. Actually dat jive has been out. This stuff has been going on since Bradley got a gift, and Hulkquez -- full of dat syet -- got a kayo. Most of the same people here who are saying that greenish T-Craw and bytch-diva Khan will beat Da Manny, said the same about Bradley II, "Bam Bam" Rios and Chris Algieri. And, of course. Money May, who could not do syet against a one-armed PacMan. Little Floyd knows what it is. Of course he told T-Craw that he will have work cut for him in dat squared jungle with Da Manny. Holla!
