Manny Pacquiao is very fresh off of his easy twelve round near perfect shutout against Shane Mosley. We already know that November 12 is the next time he will step into the ring and it will probably be against old rival Juan Manuel Marquez.
Unless Floyd Mayweather Jr. steps up to the plate. Pacquiao said after the fight that he doesn't care if they fight and I believe that to some degree, but I also believe that he wants to be known as the hands down best fighter of his generation.
The only way he can do that is beat Mayweather in front of the world. I am pretty doubtful that this fight will happen but tonight was actually a step toward that fight.
