Manny Pacquiao reportedly signs with Al Haymon; are fights with Adrien Broner and Floyd Mayweather next?

According to various reports online, it appears that Manny Pacquiao, the pride of the Philippines and a man who has captured numerous accolades, will be or has already signed on with powerful adviser Al Haymon.

This news is a bit shocking. The original report came courtesy first from a Filipino news outlet and has later been confirmed by a myriad of websites online. The move was definitely surprising, due to the fact that Pacquiao has, for so many years, been connected to promoter Bob Arum with Top Rank.

For at least ten-plus years, and even further back if you count his wild wars with Mexico’s Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, and Juan Manuel Marquez, we have gotten used to Pacquiao fighting on a Top Rank show. His heroic efforts vs. the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito, and to a lesser extent Tim Bradley, Shane Mosley, Joshua Clottey, Brandon Rios, Chris Algieri, Jessie Vargas, and others, has come hand in hand with a Top Rank promotional push behind it, as well as Bob Arum weighing in on everything.

Pacquiao vs Mayweather was one of the richest sporting events in history.  Should the fight happen again, we will be ready! While we wait for another epic fight, there is plenty of fun to be had on sports betting on other matches and playing in online casinos.

Now Pacquiao has appeared to go to the “other side of the street”, as they say. What’s very true is that Haymon is connected to so many elite welterweight fighters such as Shawn Porter, Danny Garcia, Errol Spence Jr., Andre Berto, and many others.

But there appear to be only two names who Pacquiao will need; Floyd Mayweather and Adrien Broner.

Broner, the flamboyant four-division titleholder from Cincinnati, Ohio, looks like he very well could be lined up as a foe to Pacquiao in January, in a fight that will likely take place in Las Vegas. What’s crazy about that fight is that it is actually a very good, legitimate fight in many ways. Some are calling this a tune-up for Mayweather, and it just may end up being that, but no way should that fight be overlooked.

Now, to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao part two. This should be an interesting fight, something to finally settle the score, if anything else. Pacquiao claims that, after he lost a fairly competitive decision in May of 2015, that he had an injured shoulder that affected his performance. What was disappointing about the first fight was an obvious lack of action, as the two men, Mayweather (38 years old) and Pacquiao (36 years old) were obviously a few steps past their best. It was like a a slow-paced chess match, but one that was controlled in moments by Mayweather.

Mayweather is now 41 and will be 42 by the time he fights Pacquiao. Pacquiao, meanwhile, turns 40 in December. So what could we expect in a rematch honestly? This should be competitive, given the fact that Pacquiao has been more active as of late, having knocked out Lucas Matthysse just three months ago, while Mayweather hasn’t fought in over a year.

But expect odds makers to make Mayweather a favorite once again. Due to Pacquiao with Al Haymon, this should be an easy fight to make on many levels. So whether you are ready or not, prepare for May vs. Pac II.
