Manny Pacquiao’s team spoke about at his next opponent and insisted that the Filipino legend will be a different fighter in Floyd Mayweather rematch.

Coach Freddie Roach just revealed that the eight-division title holder is being targeted to get back in the boxing ring in February. According to what Roach was told, Danny Garcia is apparently the frontrunner for the legend’s February opponent. However, one of Pacquiao’s trainers Justin Fortune recently stated that Mikey Garcia is what the team has been considering lately.

In a brief talk with veteran boxing reporter Elie Seckbach of EsNews, Fortune was quick to answer that Team Pacquiao is currently looking at a fight with (Mikey) Garcia in February. Ahead of the said fight, Fortune already predicted that “Pacman” will dominate Garcia simply because the Mexican boxing star wasn’t built for 147-lb division and his last fight against Errol Spence Jr. said it all.

“I Think so,” Fortune said about Pacquiao dominating Garcia.

“After Mikey’s performance against Spence, I didn’t think it was the best. Mikey is better at 35 (135-lb),” Fortune added.

It was also revealed that Garcia used to spar with Pacquiao in the past. However, Fortune quickly dismissed the idea of Garcia having some knowledge about Pacquiao’s game because of it. According to Fortune, “sparring and fighting Pacquiao are two different things.”

“Sparring Pacquiao and fighting Pacquiao are two different things. Every single time Manny hits you, you get hurt,” Fortune pointed out.

Despite being linked to Garcia, some in Pacquiao’s team still want the rematch with Mayweather to happen. Another trainer of Pacquiao also spoke with Seckbach just moment before the Fortune interview. According to Filipino trainer Marvin Somodio, the “result is gonna be different” should a second showdown comes to fruition soon.

“I hope that fight’s gonna happen,” Somodio said about Mayweather vs. Pacquiao rematch.

“In my opinion, I think If that fight is gonna happen the result is gonna be different,” Somodio continued.

AB Lopez, a professional boxer who spars with Pacquiao also shared his thoughts about the legend. As per the 23-year-old boxing sensation, he has a strong feeling that Pacquiao will “come in differently” against Mayweather on the rematch.

“I would like to see Mayweather-Pacquiao 2. I just feel like Pacquiao would come in differently,” Lopez said.

However, Lopez admitted that from what he knows about the subject, a rematch with Mayweather is still a “big question.”

“Will that fight happen? (still a) big question,” Lopez admitted.
