Floyd Mayweather Jr. Taunts Manny Pacquiao with Facebook Posts

This Floyd Mayweather Jr. character is beginning to look worse and worse by the day. We’ve gone over the legal issues he’s been facing lately, and most of the public has turned against him for his refusal to fight Manny Pacquiao. While Pac Man is working on his third fight since he and Money were supposed to meet, Floyd has been doing nothing but getting into trouble and betting on basketball games.

Oh yeah, he’s also been taunting Pacquiao.

Mayweather spent part of his Saturday reminding fight fans that he’s still undefeated while Manny’s record has been thrice blemished. In four separate posts on his Facebook page, he linked to videos of each one of Pacquiao’s losses, and then he topped it off by writing that he was 41-0 and undefeated.

It’s extremely irritating to see Floyd waste his time that way. We all know that he’s undefeated and that Manny has lost. But Pacquiao has been fantastic over the last handful of years, and it’s universally believed that he’s the only fighter who can challenge — and possibly beat — Floyd. If Floyd’s so good and Manny’s so bad, then why won’t he prove it in the ring?

With every fight that passes between the two of them matching up, Floyd looks worse and worse. And you know what? Even if they do eventually meet, a Mayweather win won’t have as much significance as it would have a year and a half ago when this fight was supposed to happen.

Floyd’s facebook postings pointed out by BSO. Here they are:

Floyd Mayweather Sr. Still Hinting He Thinks Manny Pacquiao Is on Something

The news was announced late Tuesday night that Manny Pacquiao’s next fight would be May 7th in the United States at a venue to be determined. The opponents being discussed are Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley, and Andre Berto. Frankly, I speak for all boxing fans when I say I don’t care who he’s fighting if it’s not Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The Pacquiao-Mayweather fight is the ones fans and analysts have wanted to see for the past few years. Floyd has said he has nothing to gain by fighting Pacquiao, and the negotiations become strained when they talk about drug testing. Floyd Mayweather Sr. also hasn’t helped matters suggesting Manny is on something and calling him out with slurs. He continued the same behavior in a recent interview with Fight Hype, hinting he still believes Pacquiao is on something (go to 1:40 mark):

He says that Pacquiao can’t whip his son, but he doesn’t want Floyd to fight Pacquiao because he has his own reasons. That’s contradictory, no? If Pacquiao can’t whip his son, then why would he be afraid of the fight? There really isn’t a reason, unless he’s still hinting he thinks Pacquiao is on something, right?

Floyd Mayweather Sr. Rips on Manny Pacquiao with Slurs

Whether it was his crew attending a cock fight or rocking a $50,000 iPod, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been making headlines here at LBS over the past week. This time around, it’s his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., getting his name in the news. As Out of Bounds shared with us, Mayweather Sr. had harsh words for boxer Manny Pacquiao while serving as a guest for the On The Ropes boxing podcast.

This isn’t the first time Mayweather Sr. has verbally bashed Pacquiao, but it’s certainly been the harshest expression. Mayweather Sr. not only called Pac Man a bitch, but he also used a slur for homosexuals to describe him. Here you can listen to a disheveled Mayweather Sr. rip on Pacquiao:

The biggest point Mayweather Sr. made is that Pacquiao is the one afraid of fighting, not the other way around. To me, it’s somewhere in between; Pacquiao is concerned about the drug testing while Floyd is not eager to make the fight happen. They each have reasons to be hesitant. Boxing fans just have to hope Pacquiao beats Antonio Margarito and the superfight goes down sometime next year.
