Manny Pacquiao: “No Exhibition Fights For Me”

Manny Pacquiao said on Wednesday that while he is focused on his title defence against Adrien Broner in Las Vegas on Jan. 19, he has considered life beyond the ring.

“At the age of 40, it’s hard to think about future fights,” he told Reuters. “Just one at a time.”

Floyd Mayweather fought last month against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa — a one-sided win that was widely panned.

Mayweather dropped Nasukawa three times before the contest was waved off in the first two minutes of round one. Nasukawa, only 20 years old, had no experience as a boxer.

“I won’t do that. If I’m Floyd I wouldn’t do that,” he said. “Exhibition match where you just knock him out. That’s not good for the fans.”
