Manny Pacquiao Says He Hopes Dream Fight With Floyd Mayweather ‘Happens Next Year’

We are getting closer.

Much has been written about the dream fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao and it appears the fight could finally happen in 2015.

The Filipino boxing champ says that he has his “fingers crossed” for the match next year and ahead of his next match against WBO title holder Chris Algieri on November 22 in Macao.

“I’m crossing my fingers – hopefully that fight will happen by next year,” Pacquiao said when asked about the possibility of a Pacquiao-Mayweather bout in a promotional event in Hong Kong. “Right now my mind is already set to focus on my next fight with Chris Algieri. I think the time to talk about that issue is after the fight.”
