I agree, he doesn't have many options left. I would love to see Thurman vs Mayweather. Maybe that could happen if he can get a couple more wins. But in name, he's a nobody to the casual crowd.

Thurman would need a belt though, he hasn't been a champ yet.

If he wins next week, he's Broners (if he wins) mandatory I believe. IF not, I can see GBP putting him up vs. Shawn Porter (though Kell Brook is his mandatory.)

I think Erislandy Lara has all the tools to beat Floyd Mayweather at 154. He called out Canelo Alvarez last night after he defeated Trout. Lara is technically undefeated. He was robbed against Paul Williams back in 2011.

Canelo vs. Lara would be awesome!!! Hopefully Canelo is mentally okay after his first loss.

IRS Now Targets Manny Pacquiao For $18 Million in Debt

By TMZ

Manny Pacquiao's financial problems are starting to build up. He now has a bill of $18 million dollars ... in addition to his $50 million dollar tax fight in the Philippines ... and this time, it's Uncle Sam that's trying to force Manny to pay up.

TMZ Sports has obtained official documents which show the IRS claims Manny owes the government millions in federal income taxes from 2006 to 2010 ... totaling $18,313,668.79 in debt.

Here's the yearly breakdown:

2006 -- $1,160,324.30
2007 -- $2,035,992.50
2008 -- $2,862,437.11
2009 -- $8,022,915.87
2010 -- $4,231,999.01

Interesting note -- Manny had 3 big fights in 2008, including a match against Oscar De La Hoya in which MP reportedly banked $15-$30 million in guaranteed cash.

In 2009, Manny famously fought Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto.

Manny's U.S. tax problems come on the heels of a nasty tax war in his home country, the Philippines ... where the goverment claims he evaded paying $50 million in taxes in 2008 and 2009 stemming from fights that took place in the United States.

Philippines officials have frozen the bank accounts Manny has in the country ... and even placed a lien on one of his most expensive properties, located in Manila.

We reached out to Manny's camp -- so far no word back.

God damn that's messed up.

If y'all thought Roy Jones-Bernard Hopkins II was something wait till you here this.

Roy Jones-James Toney II is taking place December 21st.


Also, everyone has been calling out Adrien Broner lately.

Paulie Malginaggi, Shawn Porter after their wins this past weekend and now Keith Thurman and Robert Guerrero. I hope Guerrero is next. GBP should wait for unbeatens Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman.

Manny Pacquiao is going to end up as the next Mike Tyson and Wesley Snipes.

I'd love to see Porter, Thurman, or Provonikov beat Broner to a pulp. Hopefully Maidana can do it this weekend.

At least Tyson and Snipes can still generate revenue and for many years to come.

Manny is an idiot for trusting Bob " The Scumbag" Arum. He's even worst than Don King. King is pretty much very irrelevant in boxing right now.

GENERAL SANTOS CITY—Eight-division boxing champion Manny Pacquiao on Wednesday said the reports that he owed more than $18 million in taxes in the United States were the handiwork of people out to destroy him.

“This is no doubt part of a demolition job against me,” Pacquiao told the Inquirer on the phone. “It’s not true I owe the IRS $18 million in back taxes,” Pacquiao said. Pacquiao said he had paid taxes on all of his earnings from those fights.

“How can that be?” he asked, referring to the report about his supposed tax liability. “Top Rank Promotions is deducting IRS taxes automatically before giving or releasing my purse. In the US, taxes are immediately deducted from your income.”

“Even before I could climb the ring, right inside my dressing room, IRS people are already waiting. So how can I escape from paying my taxes?” Pacquiao said.

He said Top Rank big boss Bob Arum had already taken appropriate action in the United States to clarify matters.

“Bob Arum had already issued statements in the US to set the record straight. I’m confident this issue will be cleared up,” Pacquiao said.

hmmm...

"One Time" Thurman says he would like Broner after their respective matches. I don't think Al Haymon wants to do that though...

Paulie called out Danny Garcia on Twitter.
