Now that Manny Pacquiao has defeated Chris Algieri in a lopsided win on Sunday in Macau, the Filipino fighter is now eyeing to fight another undefeated American fighter whom he has been trying to chase for years now.

Top Rank officials are reportedly making necessary preparations just in case the camp of Floyd Mayweather Jr. agrees to fight Pacquiao next year.

According to New York Daily News, if the two legendary fighters finally come to terms, the fight could happen at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in spring 2015.

"We could be coming to New York, absolutely. He's a great brand for the sport and to get a Manny Pacquiao to New York is very big," Top Rank president Todd duBoef told the New York Daily News.

For his part, Barclays CEO Brett Yormark said that they are ready for a Pacquiao fight even he does not go against Mayweather.

"We want the biggest and best events to come here. And that includes Manny Pacquiao," he added.

It can be remembered that Barclays pursued Mayweather during his last fight against Marcos Maidana, but a New York Daily News source close to Yormark claimed that the Barclays CEO felt "he was used" by the camp to raise the offer at MGM Grand.

"We all know that the Barclays was pursuing a Mayweather fight for a long time and I think they've kind of thrown in the towel. (He has) actively pursued us to throw them into our dialogue (for Pacquiao)," duBoef added via New York Daily News.

The Filipino fighter has already called Mayweather's attention after his fight against Algieri, saying he is ready for him.

"For me, the fans deserve to see that fight. People can prepare for it early next year," Pacquiao added in a post-fight conference.

USA Today said that Top Rank CEO Bob Arum is already preparing for the fight with Mayweather as they have anticipated it for the past years. The American boxer can reportedly pocket more than $80 million if he agrees to the fight. Arum earlier said that there have been negotiation with CBS Corp. chairman Leslie Moonves for the coverage of the fight. 

Pacquiao, on the other hand, would pocket lesser than Mayweather but he has expressed intent to accept it. Bleacher Report estimated the Filipino fighter's net worth to be at around $100 million. By beating Algieri, he improved his record to 57-5-2, the report added.

"It would be a very challenging fight. He would be the best we have ever faced. I will really have to do my homework. I love Manny (to win) that fight and I look forward to getting him ready for it," Arum was quoted as saying.

For his part, coach Freddie Roach said he hopes Mayweather would already make the right decision to fight Pacquiao.

"It will haunt them forever if it doesn't happen. They will always be in a conversation and someone will say 'why didn't you fight him?' Maybe calling (Mayweather) out, calling him chicken, we will embarrass him into it," Roach told USA Today.
