Who should I fight next? Pacquiao asks Twitter
Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao took to social media to poll millions of fans on who they think should be his next opponent.
“Who should I fight next?” the sport’s only eight-division champion asked in a Twitter survey that drew more than 40,000 votes as of 6 pm Saturday. The poll listed Floyd Mayweather, Keith Thurman, Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter as the choices.

The poll was also linked to Pacquiao’s Facebook Page.
Pacquiao’camp has been reportedly angling for a rematch with Mayweather, who beat him on points in the world’s richest prize fight in 2015.
Pacman’s decisive victory over American fighter Adrien Broner in January and a TKO win over Lucas Matthysse were supposed to have opened the door to that route. But the unbeaten Mayweather, officially retired, has been non-committal.
As of posting, 72% of the poll’s voters chose Mayweather as Pacquiao’s next opponent.
12% voted for Thurman, 9% for Garcia and 5% for Porter.
