Floyd Mayweather interested in promoting, not fighting Manny Pacquiao
Manny Pacquiao may be interested in a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr, but it sounds like “Money” is interested in something else.
Mayweather spoke with FightHype.com and expressed interest in promoting the Filipino fighter.
“Actually, I’m gonna get on the phone with Pacquiao after I get off this call and get in touch. And we can put him in position and get him some…[there’s] a lot of good competition out there that he could fight,” Mayweather said.
Following his victory over Lucas Matthysse last month, Pac-Man said he was open to a rematch with Mayweather. Floyd hasn’t fought since beating Conor McGregor last year and probably has no interest in putting himself against a dangerous opponent like Manny. Instead he’s focusing on his promotional career.
Pacquiao probably would have little interest in having Floyd promote him; Manny recently split with Top Rank and is promoting himself, perhaps as part of his cost-cutting measures. What would he gain from letting Floyd promote him?
