Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao has no interest in a possible rematch neither with Keith “One Time” Thurman nor with Australian Jeff Horn.

Sean Gibbons, the new president of MP promotions, in an interview with Philippine Star, detailed Pacquiao’s desire in his future fights.

Gibbons said that the Pacman does not want Thurman for a rematch, added that the latter had his chance to beat the former.

Furthermore, Pacquiao also lost interest in pushing for a rematch between him and Horn, with Gibbons tagging the Australian pug as “another desperate opponent.”

Instead, Pacquiao showed interest in welterweight elites such as Danny Garcia, Mikey Garcia, and his nemesis, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Gibbons explained that Pacman wants to be tested and challenged with top welterweights, although the rematch with Mayweather remains up in the air.

When asked about the possibility of fighting No 1. welterweight Errol Spence Jr., Pacman’s camp eagerly said they will make the decision after the Shawn Porter Spence fight.
