FLOYD MAYWEATHER:

Undefeated multi-division champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally broke his silence regarding his highly-anticipated clash with Manny Pacquiao falling through in a prepared statement that's been circulated to the media. According to Mayweather, the blame lies solely on Pacquiao and his team due to their unwillingness to accept a 14-day, no blood test window leading up to the fight.

Floyd Mayweather: "Throughout this whole process I have remained patient, but at this point I am thoroughly disgusted that Pacquiao and his representatives are trying to blame me for the fight not happening when clearly the blame is on them.

"First and foremost, not only do I want to fight Manny Pacquiao, I want to whip his punk ass. 

"Before the mediation, my team proposed a 14-day, no blood testing window leading up to the fight.  But it was rejected.  I am still proposing the 14-day window but he is still unwilling to agree to it, even though this is obviously a fair compromise on my part as I wanted the testing to be up until the fight and he wanted a 30-day cut-off.   The truth is he just doesn't want to take the tests. 

"In my opinion it is Manny Pacquiao and his team who are denying the people a chance to see the biggest fight ever.   I know the people will see through their smokescreens and lies.    I am ready to fight and sign the contract. Manny needs to stop making his excuses, step up and fight."
