Manny Pacquiao Has Pick Of Opponents After Victory


LAS VEGAS (AP) — Sugar Shane Mosley was in full retreat from the opening round against Manny Pacquiao, backpedaling and scrambling to a soundtrack of boos simply to avoid getting knocked out by the pound-for-pound king of boxing.

Pacquiao has seen this embarrassing strategy before. Floyd Mayweather Jr. seemingly has been doing it for the past year, only outside the ring.

If Mayweather declines another chance to fight Pacquiao in the bout most boxing fans demand, Pacquiao will keep busy with his congressional duties until his next fight in early November.

A third fight with Mexican star Juan Manuel Marquez apparently is promoter Bob Arum’s first choice, with 140-pound champ Timothy Bradley and veteran Zab Judah standing by if they can’t make the deal.
