According from the news online, this statement of Mayweather came after learning that Crawford is considering the Filipino boxing icon as his next opponent. Although he may be younger and conditioned than Manny, the undefeated American boxer said that Terence is going to have a tough time before he can beat him.

“If Terence Crawford happens to fight Manny Pacquiao, I want to let him know that it’s not going to be easy.” Floyd stated. “Even though I know I made it look easy, it’s not going to be easy.’ He added.

Floyd admitted that Manny has surpassed his expectation when they fought because he can definitely fight and he hits harder than his past opponents do.

The Sarangani-native Filipino boxer is currently holding a record of 57 wins (38 KOs), 6 loss, 2 draws and the only boxer to win 8 different divisions. Manny is a congressional representative in his province and actively playing in the Philippines Basketball Association (PBA) as the playing-head coach for the Mahindra team.

Even though he had other fighters in mind, he wants to fight Pacquiao and saying he will be ready 100% if the latter one accepts his challenge.

From the reports of the ESPN, the boxer from the Philippines receives a guaranteed $20 million and some added profits from his upcoming fight in April 9, 2016.
