MANILA – Floyd Mayweather was quick to fire back at Manny Pacquiao this time around.
Last week, eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao announced that he has agreed to all the fight terms for the making of the much-awaited super fight against Floyd Mayweather.
Initially speaking through Bob Arum, “Pacman" once again reiterated his statement on Tuesday during his trip to New York City.
"We are waiting for the contract signing,” Pacquiao told Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN News. “I mean it's that close to make that fight happen. My promoter and I we agreed already to all the terms and conditions that he wants to do. We are just waiting for the contract from them."
Arum even went as far as having a “Plan B,” should the negotiations fail to bear fruit once again.
However, the undefeated pound-for-pound boxing king immediately responded to both Pacquiao and Arum’s claims. Of course, he did it in trademark Floyd Mayweather fashion.
“Pacquiao said that he agreed to everything. What did you agree to? You have no say so,” said Mayweather, who called in rapper DJ Whoo Kid's show “The Hollywood Shuffle”. “You have a boss. That's called Top Rank Promotions. That's not called Pacquiao Promotions. With my company, it's called Mayweather Promotions."
Mayweather also denied the news about any part of the negotiations moving forward, contrary to Bob Arum’s claims.
“Do I want to fight Pacquiao? Absolutely! Are we negotiating? Absolutely! But has the fight been made? Not at all.”
“Money” did reiterate that he, too, is pushing for the fight to finally happen, but once again pinned the blame solely on Arum.
"We're trying, but it's been extremely difficult dealing with Top Rank,” Mayweather continued. “I don't want to sit right here and point the finger at Pacquiao and say it's him, because it's not Pacquiao. It's his promoter.”
“So a lot of times when Pacquiao say, 'Oh, I agree,'” he added. “You don't have nothing to do with this. You're not a boss. On the chess board, you're a pawn."
