PACQUIAO SIGNS WITH AL HAYMON

Manny Pacquiao’s bid to rematch Floyd Mayweather took a big step yesterday with the news that he had signed with manager Al Haymon.

Haymon is the founder of Premier Boxing Champions and more importantly is the long-time advisor to Mayweather, becoming crucial to get any hope of a rematch over the line.

Pacquiao, 40 cut ties with longtime promoter Top Rank after handing defeat to former world champion Lucas Matthysse.

Reports of a rematch between ‘Money’ and ‘Pac Man’ intensified when Mayweather flew to Tokyo on September 15th to meet Pacquiao during a music festival.

Since then cryptic messages have been shared by the two on social media.

The new move from Pacquiao, Mayweather aside could also potentially open a few other avenues with Al Haymon managing the likes of Errol Spence Jr, Shawn Porter, Keith Thurman, Danny Garcia and Adrien Broner amongst many others.

It’s a bold move from the legendary figure, who has severed ties with trainer Freddy Roach and possibly even his business manager Michael koncz if reports are to be believed.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
