"Absolutely. I would love to fight Manny Pacquiao. We tried to make the fight happen years ago. We had problems with random blood and urine testing. Like I said, I just want to be on an even playing field. Now he's in a very tight situation. He's lost to Marquez, he's lost to Bradley, pay-per-view numbers are down extremely low, so he's desperate. I've been wanted that fight a long time ago. I'm just waiting on them. Of course we have to make the fight happen on Showtime pay-per-view because Showtime Championship Boxing is number one and will remain number one and I'm the man; I'm here to stay," stated undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather, who broke his silence on a potential clash with 8-division world champion Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather had a lot to say to set the record straight about whether or not he wants to make the fight a reality. Check out what else he had to say!
"Floyd Mayweather is not ducking or dodging any opponent. Bob Arum is stopping the fight. We have been trying to make this fight happen behind the scenes for years now, but the fans and the people have been fooled because they have been listening to people just on one side. Now it's time for us to talk. We want the fight. We're ready. Let's make it happen. May 2nd. Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao. Let's do it."
"I know that he's not on my level, the fans would love to see the fight, and of course I want to go out with a bang, so let's make this fight happen. Manny Pacquiao, Bob Arum, you guys have been ducking us for year. We're tired of you guys fooling the public, fooling the critics. Before we tried to make the fight happen. You guys didn't want to take random blood and urine testing, so that's why the fight didn't happen. Then I offered you $40 million. Then you didn't want to make the fight happen. You lost twice. Now you coming back begging for the same money. That's not going to happen. Let's make this fight happen for the people and for the fans. Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao. May 2nd. Cinco De Mayweather."
