Ryan Garcia Could Meet Manny Pacquiao?
Preliminary negotiations are under way to organize a fight between Ryan Garcia (21-0, 18 KOs) and Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs). This was announced by the American journalist Mike Coppinger. The details of this duel are not yet known.
Pacquiao, 42, has not entered the ring since July 2019, when he beat Keith Thurman on points. The Filipino was recently tried on as an opponent in a boxing match with Conor McGregor, but after the defeat of the Irishman Dustin Poirier, these plans are probably no longer relevant.
In early January, Garcia won his first championship belt by defeating Luke Campbell. At stake was the interim WBC lightweight title. Pacquiao spent his last fights at welterweight.
