Boxing star Manny Pacquiao’s next fight will most likely be in 2018 with his promoter Bob Arum recently discussing the team’s game plan for the new year. As one of the greatest pound for pound boxers in the world, his career still isn’t quite finished. Pacquiao will want to avenge his WBO Welterweight title loss via unanimous decision to Australian fighter Jeff Horn. However, there may be another welterweight fight for “Pac-Man” before that Horn rematch ever takes place. Here are the latest details on who Pacquiao’s next fight could be with, according to promoter Bob Arum.
In a report from Boxing Scene this weekend, it was noted that the Top Rank CEO Bob Arum has been mapping out the plan of attack for Pacquiao in 2018. His potential rematch with WBO Welterweight champ Jeff Horn was pushed to the backburner this past year due to Pac’s schedule as a senator in the Philippines. He will likely have that rematch if Horn can defeat Terance Crawford when they fight in 2018. Ahead of that, Manny Pacquiao will take on a “top welterweight” in April, and it will likely be an opponent the team is confident that the 39-year-old fighter can defeat.
