Charlo: Pacquiao Will Make For a Better Fight With Spence

By Radio Rahim

Former junior middleweight champion and current middleweight contender Jermall Charlo believes Manny Pacquiao will make for a much better contest with Errol Spence.

On Saturday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas - Spence dominated unbeaten four division champion Mikey Garcia over twelve rounds of action.

Spence picked up a one-sided unanimous decision and retained his IBF welterweight title for a third time.

Garcia, who holds the WBC world title at lightweight, was moving up by two weight divisions to take the fight. Prior to this bout, he'd never fought any higher than the junior welterweight limit.

Pacquiao, the WBA "regular" champion at 147-pounds, was sitting ringside and entered the ring in the aftermath.

Spence called him out for a future fight in July, which is when Pacquiao plans to fight again. Pacquiao accepted the challenge.

Charlo, who shares the same head trainer, was very impressed by Spence's performance.

"I seen a shutout performance by Errol. He delivered a statement. I want to see that Pacquiao-Spence fight come next. [Garcia] had no success, Errol did exactly what he needed to do, he shut him out, the game plan was phenomenal, everything was perfect. High respect for Garcia, he jumped in weight and made it happen, it was good," Charlo told

He believes nothing Garcia could have done would have turned the tide.

"No [Garcia couldn't do anything], honestly the reach, the power, the skills. it was like God given. Honestly it was not a real good matchup. Styles makes fights and it was not a good fight for Mikey," Charlo said.

But he's confident someone like Pacquiao, who's been fighting at 147-pounds since 2007, will put up a much better fight.

"I think it would be a better fight than that was [with Garcia], I think because of size and things like that," Charlo said.

Thurman Vs. Pacquiao is the PBC fight to make that would generate the most $$. Thurman Vs. Spence is the BIG 147lbs fight the PBC can make that actually matters. "One Time" is still the one to beat on that…

[QUOTE=Uncle Sugar;19594210]Spence and Pacquiao Both Avoiding Crawford...won't even mention his Name.... Pacquaio decided to Fight Horn instead of Crawford...... Spence called out Pacquaio and if that doesn't happen...he wants Porter..... Sure he makes more Money fighting Pac but Fighting Porter…

Crawford needs ESJ, not the other way around. Just like 40% of social media got the Garcia fight wrong.. Bud brings nothing but hype to the table.. Mikey had legit WW bodies on his resume . Who does Bud have?…
