Reports are now noting that a fight between Manny Pacquiao and Ryan García is being explored. At 21-0 with 18 impressive KO victories, without a doubt, WBC Interim Lightweight Champion García is one of boxing’s brightest stars.
However, his fight against the eight-division champion and overall sports legend is really unexpected for combat sports fans. 41-year-old Manny Pacquiao has not fought since winning the WBA Welterweight title back in 2019.
There is a major weight discrepancy between him and “Kingry”, so García would need to go up two weight divisions to challenge for Pacquiao’s title or meet at a catchweight without the title on the line, if the two were to meet in the squared circle.
Stay tuned as talks for the Manny Pacquiao vs. Ryan García fight are still in the preliminary stages.
