Floyd Mayweather On Manny Pacquiao: “Why Is Pacquiao Scared To Say My Name?”

- By Bossip Staff

Floyd Mayweather is yelling out the old Destiny’s Child jawn, Say My Name-Say My Name, to Pac-Man. If you saw the fight Saturday night, then you probably remember hearing Larry Merchant asking Manny Pacquiao about fighting Floyd Money.

Manny backed out of the question and really did sound a little spooked about fighting Pretty Boy. When Merchant asked his trainer, Freddy Roach, he said “We Want Mayweather.” You knew Floyd was waiting to hear that and we immediately thought of what Floyd would say. Here it is:

“Manny Pacquiao is the fighter and every time someone asks him if he wants to fight me, he says it is up to his promoter, he’s going to take a vacation, whatever the answer is. I have yet to hear him actually say, ‘yes I want to fight Mayweather.’ We are the fighters and if one fighter is talking about fighting another fighter, then they should just come out and say it. Manny Pacquiao doesn’t say anything directly about fighting me because he might just know it’s not a fight he can win.

“He said during an interview he did leading up to his fight that he didn’t think I wanted to fight him and that boxing for me was just a business and I wasn’t interested in a good fight. But again, he never said during that interview that he would fight me. Why is he talking about what I won’t do instead of what he wants to do? Plain and simple, it’s because he knows he can’t beat me under any circumstances.

“Less than an hour after his fight Saturday night the talk turns back to me. Their whole promotion was just a Mayweather sweepstakes. They know it and anyone could figure that out. Why, because my name kept coming up and I didn’t even say anything. Even when he was interviewed on ESPN by Brian Kenny, he was asked about fighting me and what did he say? Not ‘yes I want to fight Mayweather or bring it on.’ But no! He said ‘hum, ahh, well talk to my promoter.’

“The world is much more intrigued by the thought of someone fighting me who can beat me. That is what everyone wants to see and the boxing world is trying to find that guy. Manny Pacquiao’s people have done a good job of creating an image of him to be this unbelievable fighter and now the so-called guy to beat me. But like all the rest, he’s not the one.

“There is boxing and then there is me. The rest are just falling in line behind me or are trying to get in line to fight me. And that includes Manny Pacquiao too.

“Tell Manny Pacquiao to be his own man and stop letting everyone, including his loudmouth trainer, talk for him. I am my own boss, speak for myself and tell it like it is. If Manny Pacquiao wants to fight me, all he has to do is step up to the plate and say it himself.”

We here at Bossip think Pac-Man is one hell of a fighter and the fight of the decade will be with Manny and Floyd….

    Floyd has always been an arrogant a**hole. Floyd is the one that said he didn’t want to fight Manny. Floyd is the one that has to say YES. In order to be the best you must beat the best. Floyd has never fought anybody that was on top at the time, he has always fought the person that was ranked 4th or 5th in the division. This fool has only had 1 knockout(Hatton)in how many YEARS. Floyd has done nothing but get LUCKY decisions these few years. Manny will end that.

  • M Wil The Beast

    I can’t see Pac beating Floyd. How can you beat a dude that doesn’t get hit?

  • David

    PBF = Champ!!!

  • Lady D

    I want to see them fight. I think Floyd may be getting a run for all that money of his.


    Once Pac-man fights s-o-m-e-o-n-e like Paul “THE PUNISHER” Williams, then he can talk!! Till then, he needs to take his cat eating azz back to the gym and STFU!! Floyd doesn’t have a damn thing to prove, because last I checked, HE’S DA CHAMP!!!!

  • Leslie

    That’s cause Manny aint about the running the mouth sh*t like Floyd. He shows you with them hands!

  • Leslie

    I used to be a die hard Mayweather fan, but his mouth gets on my nerves. Not to mention I did not like his response when Mosely was like yeah, I’m trying to get in that a$$! He just seemed like a little beeyotch to me.

  • Leslie

  • Just Some Cat

    I hope Manny whups Flyod’s arrogant black ass.

  • You Smell Me??

    Seriously, PAC MAN will win. I would like to compare Mayweather to Ali in terms of the trash talking, but Ali beat the best, at their best. So he could do the talking.

    If he wants people to believe he is the best, fight Pacquiao (only if you survive Sugar Shane [who was 38-0 at one point also]) Then brag. People will be believers then, but until then, just fight.

    He is still young, so he technically has a while before his body starts to break down.

    Manny hasn’t ducked anyone. Floyd on the other hand has a list of guys he’s ducked…Antonio Margarito, Shane Mosley, Manny Pacquiao…

    His legacy will always be tarnished by these facts.

  • truthbetold

    Lets face it black people run the sporting world, and boxing is no different. Floyd is the best and people want him to lose because he is black with an attitude. Its not gonna happen. U whites need to invent another sport similar to hockey, (slidding across ice) if u want to be the best at a sport. Until then shut up, with your un athletic asses, LOL.

  • Eva

    For a veteran, he sure is arrogant. Manny doesn’t brag, that’s all it is, and he’s grateful for all the blessing that he’d been getting. Floyd should learn to appreciate as well..

  • Chris

    I want Mayweather to be the champ. I want him to win all the time. he is black and he is smart and strong…
