Mayweather has also been vocal in the past week, offering his thoughts on a rematch with Manny Pacquiao and also hitting out at fellow boxer Adrien Broner after he made disrespectful comments about Caitlyn Jenner.
A few two weeks ago, Pacquiao took to Facebook and posted a video saying, "I don't know yet who's my opponent next, but we're still negotiating right now about the rematch with Floyd Mayweather, so hoping for that".
The undefeated fighter took a step back from boxing after defeating Andre Berto, which took his record to 49-0. It seems that he's had no problems keeping himself busy. Acknowledging his role in the young boxer's career as a mentor, Mayweather expressed confusion regarding Broner's motivations to speak ill of The Money Team. You gotta watch what you say because you don't never know who you may need in life or who you may bump into in life.
As for Pacquiao, he had hinted that he would reveal his opponent for his final fight this week, and that foe was widely expected to be 28-year-old British welterweight Amir Khan, who has been lobbying relentlessly for a fight against either Pacquiao or Mayweather for the past year at least. "It's not new for him", Pacquiao said of the American. This, according to Top Rank big boss Bob Arum.
But now sources close to Pacquiao say that he will wait until next month to make his decision about who will occupy the opposite corner in his swan song fight next year. That time came during a recent interview that Mayweather did with Fight Hype.
The eight-division champion Paquiao has not fought since losing to Mayweather last May in Las Vegas. Mayweather is so boring, he's this, and he's that!' I'm boring enough to do the biggest and the best numbers in pay-per-view history.
Pacquiao, already a Filipino congressman, is standing for election to his country's senate in May and would like his "retirement fight" no later than April 9.
