Pacquiao, Mayweather trade social media blows


//

Newly minted WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao has called for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather, whilst engaging in a verbal war with the undefeated boxing champion on social media.

Manny Pacquiao knocked down Keith Thurman in the first round and persevered for an exciting split-decision victory in Las Vegas on the weekend, adding a third straight win to his career resurgence after turning 40.

The Filipino star's legendary boxing career seemed to be spiraling two years ago when he lost via split-decision to Jeff Horn at Suncorp Stadium.

And while reported tax problems have lured him back to the ring, he's wasted no time in recapturing his old form in putting together solid back-to-back victories over Lucas Matthysse and Adrien Broner.

The way Pacquiao outclassed Thurman, a 29-year-old champion in his prime, sparked immediate buzz among fight fans with several calling for a rematch between Mayweather and the Filipino senator, the last of which was taken out by 'Money' in what was the highest the highest-grossing PPV in history, surpassing Mayweather–Álvarez in 2013 with $4.6 million buys generating around $500 million.

But Mayweather hit back at all the talk surrounding a rematch with Pacquiao, telling his social media followers that he was sick of Pacquiao using his name to get himself more attention.

“I find it real ironic how every time Pacquiao’s name is brought up in the media, my name is always attached to it,” Mayweather said on Instagram.

“This man’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name and it’s about time you all stop using my brand for clout chasing and clickbait and let that man’s name hold weight of its own.

“For years, all you heard was that ‘Floyd is afraid of Manny Pacquiao.’ But what’s funny is, when we finally fought, I won so easily that everyone had to eat their words! All of the so called boxing experts, critics and jealous American ‘fan base’ either went mute and ran for cover or made every excuse in the world as to why I should give Manny Pacquiao a rematch.

“My take on all this bullsh*t is that y’all are just upset that I broke Rocky Marciano’s record and hate the fact that a black, high school dropout outsmarted you all by beating all odds and retiring undefeated while maintaining all my faculties simply by making smart choices and even smarter investments. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh!”

Pacquiao clapped back at the retired fighter and longtime rival, with his reply on social media claiming it was Mayweather using his name to "stay relevant after retirement, before asking #MayPac2

Mayweather wasn't going to let Pacquiao have the last laugh, hitting the eight-time world champion with some low verbal blows in response.

Mayweather took to Instagram saying: "Bottom line, I make more money than you, I beat you, then I signed you! I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real BOSS would do."

And then Pacquiao hit back again, with his underlying message tied to a potential sequel between the two.

Long-time Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach, told AFP that Pacquiao’s camp wouldn't rush into fighting another opponent, opting to take in the landscape and pick which fight is best for them.

“Someone just asked me ‘What’s next?’,” Roach said. “Well, you know what? We don’t need to think about what’s next for a while.

“Manny can go away and rest and we’ll think about it later on. We need to see what’s out there.”

Roach did however weigh in on a potential rematch, quashing talk that a sequel between the pair would materialise.

“I can’t see it,” Roach said. “Floyd’s retired and his people say there is no interest. But there will be other options.”
