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.
