With Manny Pacquiao signing with Premier Boxing Champions (PBC), the future Hall of Famer has a number of fresh matchups to take part in until he decides to end his career.
Back in October, Pacquiao signed with PBC looking to spend the last chapter of his career fighting some of the best boxers on the roster.
"My team will work closely with Al Haymon for the remainder of my career to deliver the most anticipated fights with the top PBC fighters. Those are the fights the fans want to see and the ones I want to have to close out my career," Pacquiao said in a press release when he first signed with PBC.
The first of those fights is a January 19 matchup against Adrien Broner on pay-per-view. But if Pacquiao is victorious on January 19, he could potentially have matchups against the likes of Errol Spence Jr., Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman, all welterweight titlists fighting under the PBC banner.
But in a recent media conference call, Pacquiao was asked whether or not those specific fights was a key reason for signing with PBC in the first place. Pacquiao declined to comment on any of those fights, saying that he will feel much better talking about it after his fight with Broner is done with.
"I think after this fight it's easy to talk about my next opponent. That's very easy but right now my plan is one at a time, because -- as they said -- I am 40 years old. I'm focused for this fight against Adrien Broner. One at a time. After the fight on January 19 that night then we can talk about my next fight," Pacquiao said.
Fightful will have a live results page for the fight between Pacquiao and Broner, for the WBA "Regular" welterweight title, which will headline a pay-per-view from the MGM Grand Garden Arena. You can listen to Pacquiao talking to Fightful in the video at the top of the page.
