Floyd Mayweather Jr. has turned the tables on the Mayweather-Pacquiao storyline, challenging those that have called him out for ducking Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather has booked the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for his next fight on May 5, saying he wants to make it against a great opponent. At first the allusions to Pacquiao had been vague, only saying he wants to fight the "little guy." There is no more niceties now. Mayweather has come out with a video directly challenging Pacquiao to "sign the contract" and "stop ducking." Mayweather Jr. also called out Pacquiao, saying he's lost all three...

  • Mayweather is doing exactly what he's been planning all along. He waited for the exact time when he thinks Pacquiao's most beatable, after a very tough fight with another opponent (Marquez). He figures that fight took enough out of Pacquiao that he feels more confident in beating him. Mayweather if an opportunity fighter, he waits for the right time and opportunity then he accepts a fight. He's full of crap and I hope when ever he does fight Pac that he gets his azz dusted!!!
  • Where have you been Floyd. Manny has been asking to fight you for years. Please nobody bring up testing that has been taken care of years ago.
