Manny Pacquiao believes that he can continue fighting for another two years after he beat Timothy Bradley, which could mean a fifth fight against Juan Manuel Marquez – a fight that price per head sportsbooks would really like to see.
Pay per head services saw that Pacquiao was able to keep the WBO welterweight title with a unanimous points win over the previously undefeated Bradley, and in the process avenge a loss to the same opponent in 2012.
In their last fight it was the American fighter who got the nod from the judges, but price per head sportsbooks saw that now ‘Pac Man’ was rewarded for his dominance in the fight’s second half with verdicts of 116-112 (twice) and 118-110.
“I’m so happy to be world champion again. Tim Bradley was not an easy fight,” Pacquiao said afterwards.
“Bradley is better from the first fight. He hurt me on the chin. I knew I had to do more this time than I did the last time.”
Pay per head services can see that the result will again raise the possibility of the Filipino taking on Floyd Mayweather in a showdown that was already talked about for several years.
But a more likely scenario for the 35-year-old is another clash with Marquez – the pair fought in the past four times, the first one back in 2004 with a draw.
Pacquiao was able to win the next two fights, but price per head sportsbooks remember when two years ago he suffered an impressive sixth-round knockout at the hands of the Mexican, which led to some pundits suggesting that the end could be near for Pacquaio, but he has since made back-to-back points wins.
“I think I can go another two years,” Pacquaio – who also got the better of Brandon Rios last November – said of his future.
