    Crawford stops him? Pac is old- Would I buy that? Hell yes- I would even sell it myself!

    If Pac goes the distance- but loses, Crawford can be depicted as fizzled, not flame. Young fighter with no fire to match Pac's. He had to go the distance with a 40+ year old fighter JMM stopped?

    Only way I can see Bud getting any respect- is if Pac is on fire that night, moving, sticking, but figured out every other round...and if he wins a fire fight where Pac looks good- then we can say- Just imagine if Pac had fought him 3,4 years ago- Oh he would've stopped Bud!

    Not sure who could fight Pac & win, that I would give them the credit for beating the Filipino Dream Fighter.

    I digress, I would watch it though!
    I disagree. I think beating Pacquiao (especially if he easily wins) boosts him big time with casual fans. That in turn will make him an even bigger draw. And knowledgeable fans know at least that Pacquiao is still a solid fighter and it would be a good win. If Crawford struggles but still wins then it probably looks a little worse.
    Yeah, I gotcha- casual fans!!!
    and if he wins as u say--- and struggles in the process? Powerpuncher is gonna detail it- round by round! he aint gonna miss sh#@!t!
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    Two fights ago I had hoped Pacquiao would retire for good before 40. Watching him against Thurman, taking a couple of big shots, wow! I don’t think that anymore. I’ve seen him working on his power in training and he looks like he’s matured into weight. Who ever he fights next I’m all in.

    Arum hopeful over Crawford v Pacquiao showdown

    Promoter Bob Arum has revealed a fight between Terence Crawford and Manny Pacquiao could still be on the cards, potentially before the end of 2020.

    A bout between the two has long been talked about but has failed to materialise, though Top Rank boss Arum has raised hopes over what would be a lucrative showdown.

    WBO welterweight champion Crawford plans to be in action before the end of the year after twice defending his title in 2019, recording stoppage victories over Amir Khan and Egidijus Kavaliauskas.

    A unification clash with Pacquiao, who holds the WBA 'Super' title, is a possibility, albeit "nothing is concrete" as negotiations continue amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    "The Pacquiao fight, obviously we'd like to do it," Arum – who promotes Crawford – told BoxingScene.com.

    "Whether we can do it, how we can do it, that's what we're figuring out now.

    "Obviously, if it can happen it'll happen, and if it can't happen, it won't happen. But nothing is concrete on that. We hope we can do it. We're trying, but this is not a usual situation."

    Whether it is Pacquiao next remains to be seen, but Crawford has been told to be ready for action in November.

    Kell Brook, the former IBF champion, has also been rumoured as a potential option for 'Bud', who boasts an unblemished 36-fight record in the paid ranks.

    "We told Terence that he's scheduled to fight in November," Arum added.

    "If it can't be Pacquiao for various reasons, then we'll match him with somebody else. But we told Terence to prepare for mid-November, whether it's November 14 or 21."

    This is just a fight that needs to happen so that Crawford can get a big name on his record. Then if Spence can get it done against Garcia, it will be a huge showdown.

    Manny Pacquiao is in “serious talks” over a title fight with undefeated WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford, according to Bob Arum.

    Pacquiao, 41, currently holds the WBA super welterweight title after defeating Keith Thurman last year.

    Crawford meanwhile beat Egidijus Kavaliauskas last time out and has held the WBO strap since stepping up in weight and stopping Jeff Horn in 2018.



    Speaking to iFL TV Arum said: “We hope to get [Terence] Crawford and [Manny] Pacquiao in action this year through our friends at MTK.

    “We're in serious talks with Bahrain, doing major fights there.”

    Talking about the prospect of heading to Bahrain for the fight, Arum added: “Well, let's see what happens. Everybody wants to do these events until the time comes to put up the money.

    “But I think with Bahrain we have a good shot to get it done.”

    I'll believe this fight will happen only when it's signed.

    Arum is being economical with the truth as regards any meaningful "discussions" having taken place about moving this fight forward. After what Arum did to Manny in his fight with Horn in Australia I have my doubts that Manny will want to deal with Arum again.

    Why didn't Crawford fight Pacquiao, when they were both signed to Top Stank? Had that happened before Pacquiao's "so-called" lost to Jeff Horn, Crawford would've had way more leverage in the game. Also Manny could make just as much money fighting Mikey Garcia in Dallas or Amir Khan in Saudi Arabia. No one would fault him for either fight because he's 41.

    Spence is fighting the Top WWs at PBC. Bud is fighting the Top WWs at Top Rank. Hopefully the money for the fight gets big enough that PBC, TR, FOX/SHO, and ESPN, can all make money, just like Fury vs. Wilder, and May vs. Pac.

    Even though I do think Manny and his fans are on a false high over the Thurman fight. The fact is, out of his prime he still beat the most accomplished welterweight in Thurman, that is saying a lot but he still took quite a good deal of damage in that fight

    He should've retired after that, he's got nothing else to prove and Manny even at 41 is still better than anything Crawford has ever seen in the ring. He will get to Crawford at some point and do some damage. Crawford likes to mix it up when tagged and he will be right in Pac's wheel house.



    Crawford isn't Mayweather. So I don't see him killing Manny. I don't see Bud doing to Pac-man what Pac-Man did Oscar, that is another greedy old boxer getting embarrassed just like all the greedy old boxers before him. I see it more like a Joshua - Wlad fight. There is nothing in it for Crawford beating this fella who should stick to Senating while his brain is still functioning. I seriously think beating a Thurman with ring rust was Manny's last big hurrah.

    Should the fight happen This will be the end of a legendary career. I fear for Pacquiao’s long term health but maybe this is the only way he will quit.

    Sometimes people (Yeah you Freddie) have to save the fighter from himself.
