Ellerbe: Pacquiao’s Not Waiting For Floyd
Much like in a relationship, Manny Pacquiao leaving an emoji on Floyd Mayweather’s Instagram post has led to drama.
Pacquiao, who is currently negotiating to fight Keith Thurman on July 13th, posted a “thumb’s up” emoji on an Instagram post of Mayweather’s claiming a “big announcement coming.”
With Pacquiao and Mayweather running into one another numerous times this year, even playing basketball against one another in the WBA “regular” welterweight champion’s native Philippines, speculation for a rematch of their 2015 fight has been rampant.
While the announcement was Mayweather partnering with a daily fantasy sports site, that has not halted speculation.
“Pacquiao has his own plans,” Mayweather promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said. “Pacquiao is not sitting around waiting on Floyd. Pacquiao has a number of big fights in front of him.”
Ellerbe, who is in Carson, California for Danny Garcia and Adrian Granados’ showdown, told Boxing Scene that Mayweather is keeping a keen eye on the top of the welterweight division.
“Floyd knows that all of them are excellent fighters,” Ellerbe said. “He’s had nothing but great things to say about each and every one of the welterweights.”
