"All Pacquiao is doing is fighting my leftovers," says Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Fresh off his controversial win against Mexican fourth-round knockout of Victor Ortiz, Floyd Mayweather Jr. was once again firing off controversial statements about Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao. What was even more unnerving was that Mayweather often referred to himself in the third person. Perhaps, that’s what happens when people hound you to give them the "fight of the century."

Fresh off his controversial win against Mexican fourth-round knockout of Victor Ortiz, Floyd Mayweather Jr. was once again firing off controversial statements about Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao. What was even more unnerving was that Mayweather often referred to himself in the third person. Perhaps, that’s what happens when people hound you to give them the "fight of the century."


Reuters reports that the 34-year-old Mayweather-who beefed up his perfect professional record to 42-0 by claiming the WBC welterweight title from Ortiz at the MGM Grand Garden Arena-said, "I don’t need Pacquiao. With or without Pacquiao, every time Floyd Mayweather goes out there, he’s going to make over $70 million."

 

Undeterred, Mayweather went on to say, "I don’t need him. Where was Pacquiao in 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 when I was dominating the game? He never asked me (for a fight) when I was in my twenties or when I was in my teens."

"Pacquiao is famous because he is attached to my name," Mayweather added. "When they say Pacquiao, they say that’s the guy they are trying to get to fight Floyd Mayweather. When they say Floyd Mayweather, they say the greatest ever. All Pacquiao is doing is fighting my leftovers, man."
