Hall of Famer and former world champion Erik 'Terrible' Morales does not see the point of a possible fight between eight division champion Manny Pacquiao and undefeated WBC interim-lightweight champion Ryan Garcia.

Morales who fought Pacquiao three times - with a big win in their first meeting followed by two knockout defeats - views the contest as a mismatch.

Pacquiao, 42-years-old, looked very sharp in his last ring appearance - which came in July 2019 when he pulled off a twelve round decision win over Keith Thurman to capture the WBA welterweight title.

Garcia, with far less experience but 20 years younger - picked up his biggest career win last month when he knocked out 2012 Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell.

Morales views the contest as nothing more than an opportunity for everyone involved to generate some money.

Not only does Morales see Pacquiao winning, he could easily see the Filipino star end the fight in two rounds.

Morales would much rather see Pacquiao face someone like four division champion Mikey Garcia. He feels welterweight champions Errol Spence and Terence Crawford are a bit too big for the aging fighter.

“Pacquiao with Ryan is a very lopsided fight. Even though [Pacquiao] is old, he can put Ryan to bed in two rounds,” Morales told ESPN Deportes.

“I think [Garcia] is taking advantage of being a popular fighter. That is the reality, he is already a champion, but he has to face the best to solidify it, because he is hardly an interim.

"I would love for Pacquiao to fight Mikey Garcia, who is a not a big fighter [physically]. There are Spence and Crawford, but Spence is very big, he's tough, and Crawford is a good boxer - I don't think he grabs them, they are natural welterweights, although the Filipino always surprises."
