Pacquiao: in the homestretch

Manny Pacquiao took another shot against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his boxing match with Japanese boxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan.

Pacquiao had already followed Mayweather on Twitter just hours after the former book-to-book king knocked out Nasukawa in the first round of his three-round show in Japan.

"Here is a resolution at the beginning of the year. Keep fighting only experienced opponents of my size or more, "tweeted Pacquiao.
