"Bottom line, I make more money than you; I beat you, then I signed you! I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real BOSS would do," - Floyd Mayweather Jr. to Manny Pacquiao
Oh boy, it looks like Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn't done talking smack on social media.
The undefeated and retired former champion responded to Manny Pacquiao's tweet by posting - this time on Facebook - another lengthy rant, unloading on the eight-division world champion and even throwing shade at Japanese star Tenshin Nasukawa along the way.
"Let's stick to the facts! Bob Arum is no longer your promoter, so when it comes to Mayweather Promotions & PBC events I’m the HNIC!" Mayweather said.
Pacquiao was promoted by Bob Arum and Top Rank Boxing for the better part of his two-decade career before jumping over to Al Haymon's Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) late last year.
PBC, of course, has been the long-time promoter of Floyd Mayweather Jr, hence the rank-pulling.
"Bottom line, I make more money than you; I beat you, then I signed you! I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real BOSS would do," Mayweather Jr. continued, referring to his attendance at Pacquiao's 12-round decision win over Keith Thurman over the weekend to capture the WBA (Super) Welterweight World Championship.
The 50-0 boxer even took a shot at Nasukawa, whom he defeated in a three-round exhibition match at RIZIN 14 in Japan back in New Year's Eve. Mayweather needed less than a round to dispose of the smaller Nasukawa in the unsanctioned bout.
"You made $10Million for 12 rounds, when I just made $9M in under 3 minutes playing around in an exhibition with a pizza delivery guy!"
Now, again, whether or not this exchange ultimately leads to a rematch is unsure.
Let's see what Manny has to say about this.
