Manny Pacquiao says if Floyd Mayweather 'cared about his fans' he would fight
THE Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao saga continues.
One day after Boxing Scene reported that Floyd Mayweather accused Manny Pacquiao of having ‘no say’ in negotiations, the Filipino declared to his 1.5m followers on Twitter that he is confident of victory – should the fight ever occur.
Last week, Manny told reporters that he thought the fight would be go ahead, and that he had agreed to all the terms and conditions of the proposed May 2 welterweight showdown. Since then Mayweather has suggested that Pacquiao is exaggerating his importance on the negotiating table.
Pacquiao, though, just wants to fight.
“If you really care about the fans, you will fight,” Pacquiao said before suggesting Mayweather might get hurt if they did fight. “If you care about yourself… you won’t fight.”
The Filipino, who would be an underdog against Mayweather, then referenced the last time he was favoured to lose.
