MANNY PACQUIAO DISMISSES JAKE PAUL FIGHT RUMORS: “I WANT TO FIGHT THE BEST”

A BOXING LEGEND.

Manny Pacquiao is a name that is synonymous with boxing. With an impressive career spanning 71 fights, 62 of which he’s won.

A reporter asked Pacquiao if he would ever consider fighting a YouTuber and specifically mentioned Jake Paul. But he flat out refused.

“No, I will not. I will not,” he said. “I want to fight the best to add on to my legacy.”

Pacquiao insisted it has nothing to do with Paul’s skill as a boxer. Instead, it’s more about his lack of experience.

"I’m not underestimating Paul, but he doesn’t have a lot of experience of boxing, so he’s already at a disadvantage." he said.

Pacquiao is taking on the current unified world welterweight champion, Errol Spence Jr., in Las Vegas on August 21.
