Boxing: Pacquiao targets Mayweather in fight all fans crave

Manny Pacquiao avenged his loss to Timothy Bradley in convincing style on Saturday, and said he's 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 Organization welterweight belt.

"I think he may lack fire," the American told journalists in Las Vegas. "His motivation is not there. He's been at the top for a very long time. He has over 60 fights in the ring with all the best.
