MANILA – Even with the countless accomplishment that Mayweather has accrued during a 21 year career, current Welterweight contender Shawn Porter would rather takes Manny Pacquiao’s career instead of Mayweather’s.
“I’m actually gonna go with Manny.. I think that even though Manny has taken a lot of punishment – he’s been in a lot of wars, he’s been in a lot of exciting fights.” Porter told in an interview hosted by Dan Rafael.
“You know me, I like the war. I like the battle and I like the excitement. So, for those reasons, I would pick Manny. And then on top of that, if you look around the world more people appreciate Manny. More people respect and adore Manny than dislike him.” he added.
The 32-year-old Porter lauded the Filipino legend’s “exciting” style and persona outside the court.“They’re two different fighters. But at the end of the day Manny Pacquiao goes out and he walks up and down the street, more people are willing to shake his hand and say hi to him than make a mean mug or wanna confront him or anything like that,”
The former IBF/WBC welterweight champion has expressed his interest in fighting Pacquiao who is currently the WBA (Super) welterweight title.
