Boxing: Pacquiao targets Mayweather in fight all fans crave

LAS VEGAS (AFP) - Manny Pacquiao avenged his loss to Timothy Bradley in convincing style on Saturday, and said he is ready any time to negotiate the bout with Floyd Mayweather that fight fans crave.

"The line is open 24 hours, seven days a week," the Filipino ring icon said after his 12-round unanimous decision over the previously unbeaten Bradley.

The win rectified what most saw as a grave miscarriage in their first fight in 2012, when Bradley was awarded a split decision win and the World Boxing Organisation welterweight belt.

Pacquiao's energy and precision also backed the 35-year-old's claim that his boxing journey is far from over - making talk of a mouth-watering Pacquiao-Mayweather match inevitable.
