Floyd Mayweather Ignored Questions On Manny Pacquiao Rematch
Eight division champion Manny Pacquiao has had in his priorities, avenging his loss to Floyd Mayweather and after his win against Adrien Broner, during the weekend made clear with a challenge to the retired unbeaten five – division champion.
“Tell him to come back to the ring and the we can fight,” Pacquiao told Showtime.
“I am willing to fight Floyd Mayweather again – if he is ready to come back to boxing.”
The challenge was obviously met with no replies and even during interviews, Showtime’s Jim Gray asked Mayweather to “shake or nod” his head in response, but the 41-year-old didn’t do either
The answer to that challenge was delayed till Mayweather Promotions’ Leonard Ellerbe gave out a befitting reply during the post Fight Press Conference.
“He’s (Mayweather) retired, he has no interest in doing that,” said Ellerbe, when asked about fighting Pacquiao again.
“It’s not always about the money, believe it or not. What more can the man do?
“He doesn’t have the motivation, the desire. He’s living the best life, travelling, running his multiple businesses, spending his well-hard earnings that he spent blood and tears on for years.
“He’ll be 42 come February 24 and enough is enough. What good does it do to earn all that money but you can’t stick around and spend it. He has had a phenomenal career, he has broken all the records and he has nothing to prove.”
