Floyd Mayweather Jr. continues to talk trash to Manny Pacquiao, even though the two won’t be fighting in the near future. Mayweather announced Wednesday he will face Miguel Cotto on May 5th instead of Manny Pacquiao as many were hoping. Money couldn’t resist taking a jab at Pac Man, writing on Twitter:
Even though it was Floyd who was thought to be doing all the ducking in the past, he’s now turning the tables. Just because he’s been pushing to face Pac Man recently doesn’t make him a tough guy, but I like him calling out Pacquiao. If Manny is going to let promoter Bob Arum block the megafight everyone wants to see, then he deserves the criticism.
Step up Manny and make this happen.
