But he feels he may not have achieved such a feat against Pacquiao.

Paul's legendary boxing coach Freddie Roach told Betway Insider US blog: "We had fun with Logan when he visited. He seems like a good guy.

"After watching Manny work out, he said he was glad he fought Floyd instead of Manny, we liked hearing that!

"I thought Logan did well against Floyd."

Pacquiao, 42, is set to return to action next week against Yordenis Ugas, despite his advancing years.

But Paul feels that the Filipino still looks in his 'prime'.

The 26-year-old told ESNews: "He's looking sharp.

"Someone made a comment when we were watching, they said 'man, imagine Manny in his prime'.
