Mayweather Willing To Advise Pacquiao
Following Manny Pacquiao’s win over Lucas Matthysse last month, the 39 year old fighter called out Floyd Mayweather, hoping for a rematch of their 2015 showdown.
Mayweather, who beat Pacquiao in what was the most financially successful fight in the history of boxing, is not willing to come out of retirement for a Pacquiao rematch. Yet, he told FIGHT HYPE, that he would be more than happy to advise the Filipino Senator on what to do next in his career.
“I can’t knock Manny Pacquiao for what he wants to do, that’s his prerogative,” Mayweather said to Fighthype.com. “If he still wants to go out there and make money, be victorious that’s his prerogative. You do whatever you want to do. I don’t have nothing against Manny Pacquiao.
“Of course, he’s supposed to call the Mayweather name. I’m probably going to be one of the biggest names of all time in this sport, if not the biggest name. When you call the Mayweather name out, I mean, you speaking dollars. I’m not really doing interviews but I’ve been asked the question probably seven times, with one saying, ‘why are you scared to fight Pacquiao’ – like beating him once wasn’t good enough.
“It is was it is and Pacquiao is a future Hall of Famer, a hell of a champion and a hell of a guy. But the best man won and I was the best man. Actually, I’m [going to] get on the phone with Pacquiao after this call… see if we can put him in position. There’s a lot of good competition out there that he could fight.”
