Muscat: Philippines barely registered any crimes during the recent title fight between Filipino Manny Pacquiao and Lucas Matthysse, the Philippine News Agency announced.

'(Floyd) Mayweather? If he decides to go back to boxing then that is the time we are going to call the shots.

The fighting Philippines senator known as "Pac-Man" took on the unsafe Argentine WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday knowing a defeat could have lowered the curtain on one of the greatest careers in boxing history.

Pacquiao, now with a win-loss-draw record of 60-7-2, said he was enjoying his win and was not in negotiations at this time for his next bout.

"It's like I'm addicted to boxing and I really love to fight and bring honor to my country".

Matthysse, who won 36 out of 39 matches by knockout, said Pacquiao was a "great fighter, a great legend", adding that he planned to take a break.

Mayweather came out on top when the duo fought back in 2015 in what proved to be one of the most lucrative clashes of all-time.

Pac-Man is now the only boxer in history to move up through eight divisions and win world titles in all of them.

Should an unlikely rematch vs Mayweather fail to materialise, British star Amir Khan, three-weight world champion Terence Crawford or a rematch with Jeff Horn are some other potentially big fights on the cards.

'If Mayweather comes back to boxing there is a possibility of a rematch, ' he said.

'I have the belt, so it's up to him. There's a lot of potential opponents there, like (Vasyl) Lomachenko, there are so many fighters that have potential to be my opponent next, ' Pacquiao said after his win over Matthysse.

The Brit has expressed an interest in big-money fights, as well as a desire to become a world champion again.
