Pacquiao has not yet named an opponent. Terence Crawford, Errol Spence Jr., Mikey Garcia and Ryan Garcia have been mentioned as possible opponents.
Pacquiao is targeting $40 million if he fights Crawford.
“We told Bob (Arum) I get $40 million and Crawford gets $10 million,” Pacquiao told The Daily Tribune in the Philippines.
Pacquiao last fought in the summer of 2019 and beat Keith Thurman, marking his third straight win. He is 62-7-2 with 39 KOs in his career.
Conor McGregor was trying to set up a boxing match with Pacquiao, but that plan fell through after McGregor lost to Dustin Poirier.
