Pacquiao has "fingers crossed" for Mayweather showdown

ESPN staff
Manny Pacquiao says he is keeping his fingers crossed for a fight with welterweight rival Floyd Mayweather Jr next year.

Mayweather Jr has two fights left on his current Showtime deal, after which he will retire. While Mayweather has yet to reveal his plans for 2015, the American's father indicated a fight with Pacquiao will happen - and the Filipino is keen to see it come to fruition.

"Hopefully that fight will happen by next year," Pacquiao told AFP. "I'm crossing my fingers that that fight will happen but right now my mind is already set to focus on my next fight with Algieri. I think the time to talk about that issue is after the fight."

The pair have long been at loggerheads, with Mayweather recently posting pictures of Pacquiao's losses to social media to which 'Pacman' responded by calling for his rival to stop "blabbing" and face him.
