MANNY Pacquiao expressed his readiness to fight Floyd Mayweather next year shortly after his victory over Chris Algieri on Sunday afternoon.
Moments after his unanimous decision victory over the previously unbeaten Algieri in Macau, Pacquiao was asked by commentators in the the pay television broadcast about his thoughts on fight with Mayweather.
In response, Pacquiao mouthed the lines from his Foot Locker commercial, “He is going to fight me? Yes!” drawing laughs from the crowd at the Cotai Arena in Macau.
Turning serious, he said: “I think I’m ready next year for him.”
In another interview prior to the bout, Pacquiao said he likes fighting unbeaten fighters like Algieri. When asked why, the Filipino boxing hero said, he wants to give a first loss to a boxer.
Incidentally, Mayweather is still undefeated but has long dodged a megabuck fight against Pacquiao.
