Floyd Mayweather Jr. Caught Backtracking on Manny Pacquiao Promise

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been roundly criticized for ducking Manny Pacquiao. I frequently defended Mayweather’s stance while directing the blame to Pacquiao for refusing to take random drug tests without a cutoff date. Things have changed because Pacquiao reportedly is now willing to take the tests without a cutoff date.

The timing seems perfect, because in June, Floyd said he “absolutely” wanted to fight Pac-Man after Victor Ortiz. Predictably, Mayweather is backing off that claim. He’s also denying he ever said it. Luckily we have video evidence pointing to the contrary:

If you didn’t already have trouble believing anything Floyd Mayweather Jr. says, this should leave no doubt. The guy straight up lied to the media and then tried to say the media was twisting his words. Floyd, keep your mouth shut next time and don’t make promises if you’re unable to live up to them. We’re sick of it.

    This is really embarrassing as far as American boxers are concerned. I cant picture Aaron Pryor, Thomas Hearns, Marvin Hagler, even Vinny Paz act the way Floyd has been acting. But then again, those guys never cared about protecting some undefeated record that no one cares about. If Floyd doesnt want to fight Pac, he should just admit it because its PERFECTLY UNDERSTANDABLE. The new generation of American fighters dont have that “it” factor that the legends of the past had and simply arent good enough anymore which is why boxing is dying a slow and pathetic death.

    the problem with lying is that when you lie too many times you often forget some lies you’ve made, even when you said it in front of a crowd. it just shows how mayweather is a not too perfect a liar. he still forgets some of his lies. or maybe he is too fond of lying, it doesn’t matter anymore.

  • fritz.zegger

    Yeah Mr. Duff.   It is perfectly normal to be afraid , who would’nt in Pacquiao !

    Brave Floyd Mayweather just won a split decision versus the wife. wife, beaten BLACK AND BLUE !

    Whew !  Courageous. . And to think his knuckles are licensed  by a Commission..

    You really made me sick Floyd! I’m a big fan of yours. Guess what? I’m not a fan of yours anymore. You made the American look bad. Why don’t you step up and be a man like our troops overseas. Come on nigga! Don’t be a pussy! It’s time for you to have some balls to fight the best out there – Pacquiao…

    The title should have been “The Flight of the Black American Duck”…
    it has been very notable in the past years how duck tried to avoid Pacman. With his latest rants and the reply of Pacman to him should they ever fight that Pacman will “fight him like there is no tomorrow” will send chill up to his bones and feathers. Say goodbye to your career Floyduck…until you have laid an egg to fight Pacman you will never recover from the face of boxing enthusiasts.

    Plain and simple. Boycott his Sept 17 fight then let’s see if he still not want a piece in Pacman. He will fight Pacman out of jealousy by then. The fans can do it. We can do it. Boycott the Gayweather -Ortiz fight! We can all watch it in a replay or to a pirated DVDs which are surely available right after the fight.

    i was wondering mr. brown why it took you nine years of sports media experience before you able to distinguish the truth from a lie… anyway it’s good for you for waking up to your right senses!

    LOL Everybody knows! How stupid, liar, coward, self proclaimed, in-secured, FMJ. Now he is calling all the American people to follow his side. And bring them into the world that full of trick. Being above the LAW in the American soil. now he wanted the American people to follow him jumping the high building. What psychotic person. He is now a victim to his own shadow as a result of being arrogance and a drug addict. Someday this guy will follow the footsteps  of Edwin Valero after he was abused his wife then he committed suicide. This type of person can’t not stand & survive with some pressures. His act now is a sign of very near to Edwin Valero. Karma is coming!!!

    Floyd youre my idol ever since because youre one the best fighter ever lived,  but changed overnight because of youre recent lying to the boxing fans all over world…you are a shame!!!!!!! to all black people and american people in general. Fight the best in the person of the Pacman!!  41-0 never define youre legacy!!! You supposed to belong to the home of brave!!! Stand and proved it. Stop the nonsense as marvelous Marvin Hagler says. Dont make youre own rules!!! You must abide with the Commission!!!

    SCRIPTED FIGHT this saturday.

    Ortiz will be robbed of a decision win…thereby both going for a rematch..
    another excuse and ploy by FRAUD GAYWEATHER to AVOID Pacman.

    An INSANE COWARD with lots of cash is capable of anything.

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/T74VCEUTPJJS36YZFEQHDYKX6E Ben

    Ridiculous.  Go back and find Arum’s quote of why he’ll never put Pacquiao in against Sergio Martinez.  Mayweather would outweigh Pac in the ring by a good 25 pounds.  Its as simple as that.  There will never be a Pacquiao/Mayweather fight, even if he does somehow manage to beat Marquez.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZZFXKBTEHNSAFPFMIPAOVNIZLM Toring toring Kuan

    The END of GAYWEATHER is coming he can skip Manny but he can’t skip his own shadow. What was done by Edwin Valero will also happen to FMJ. Too much talking to much alibi making his own rules, are the sign of impossible meeting with Manny. This guy is protecting his wrong thoughts about his 41-0 loss. It will never give him the complete fighter yer a famous because, He is the only boxer that always having a lot of alibis making some excuses making his own rules. Even those famous boxer and didn’t call those rules because they are the greats and brave. Unlike this coward, who wanted to bring the American people to became IDIOT and JUMP to the empty sea. As he was asking any support. I think there is no need to convince people who wanted to idolize you. But it was your fault that American people will not be at your side because it is obvious that you are just playing hide and sick to any opponent that you think potentially capable of defeating you. They are all tired Mr. Mayweather. you better retired if you wanted to stay at 41-0 loss than talking like a GAY!!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZZFXKBTEHNSAFPFMIPAOVNIZLM Toring toring Kuan

    You are much of talking than action. The whole world knows about you CHEATER!!! against JMM. What do you want is to fight with a great advantage. Maybe soon you may call Hey Manny i will fight you but with only one hand. i’m at 152 you will be at 147. Then that is the time you will fight Manny. Is that a sign of a great boxer? you are such an IDIOT GAYWEATHER you make the whole American fool on your very shameful act. You better quit BOXING now after you will be defeated by ORTIZ. Your fight is boring while ORTIZ will be coming to you and you will always running. You are such a dancer than a boxer..

    I Whole Heartily KNOW now, that I was correct…. FMJ is the one Scared and running from Pac….

    41 fights in 16 years and Floyd claim he is the best. It takes only 2 years for Hagler and some other American legends to compile it without ducking the best competition available.

    Fraud Mayweather owns a history of self contradictions where he says one thing the other
    day and mouths something totally different the day after. His
    recent backtracking about fighting Pacquiao next if he successfully
    dispatches Ortiz is another item on Mayweather’s long list of self
    contradictions. He will follow the footstep of Valero, he will commit suicide to avoid fighting the Pacman. Quak, quak!!!
