Pacquiao hooks up with Floyd’s handler

Manny Pacquiao has signed up with Floyd Mayweather’s chief handler Al Haymon in move that should pave the way for a rematch between the two stars sometime next year, according to a boxing man who has knowledge of the deal.

But before the rematch happens, Pacquiao is likely to engage Adrien Broner in a tuneup in January 2019 in a soon-to-be-determined venue.

“There are many options where we can hold that fight,” said the Bulletin source, who has been burning the lines the past few weeks.

But of course, staging it in the US seems the perfect idea since Pacquiao hasn’t fought there since beating Jessie Vargas two years ago.

Mayweather edged Pacquiao in May 2015 but the Filipino legend insists that he fought with an injured shoulder.
