Thankfully for the Filipino icon, Michael Koncz told WBN that Manny Pacquiao will likely never throw fists with Floyd Mayweather.
The 34-year-old Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) was most recently knocked onto Queer Street by Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KOs) in December.
An eight-division titlist, the “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the BWAA will face Brandon Rios on November 24 at the CotaiArena in Macau, China.
"I personally do not see the fight between Floyd and Manny happening,” said Koncz, one of Pacquiao’s advisors. "We are focused on theNovember 24 fight with Rios and nothing else. We understand the importance of this fight. Rios is a young, hungry fighter and his style of coming straight forward and throwing a lot of punches will give the fans a very entertaining fight.”
Meanwhile, in an utterly brilliant showing, the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) unanimously outclassed Robert Guerrero on May 4 and pocketed $32 million for the mismatch.
A five-division, eight-belt capturer who was named The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007, Mayweather plans to next scrap onSeptember 14.
As the reigning pound-for-pound king, Mayweather is a defensive virtuoso defying Father Time with an incredible work ethic.
In stark contrast to “Pretty Boy,” Pacquiao is a faded pugilistic legend who a neurologist claimed is exhibiting initial signs of Parkinson’s disease.
Battling in front of thousands of passionate Asian supporters, Pacquiao should manage to finish the inferior 26-year-old Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs) within 11 rounds this autumn.
"If we are not able to win this fight with Rios impressively, it will be time to sit with Manny to discuss hanging up the gloves,” Koncz said when asked about Pacquiao’s health and future.
No matter what the outcome is of “a very entertaining fight,” Michael Koncz needs “to discuss hanging up the gloves” with Manny Pacquiao.
