Yesterday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, fighters for the Ring Kings undercard this weekend arrived in preparation for fight week.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto arrived to hordes of fans screaming their names and holding signs up in support. Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Shane Mosley were given the same treatment, although not as grand as Mayweather's or Cotto's.

During a press conference, Floyd had a whole lot to say about Pacquiao, ranging from his opinion on Pacquiao and steroids to naming who he wants next in the ring.

It might not surprise some who he called out though.

While talking about his upcoming fight against Cott his Saturday, Floyd let it slip out again that Pacquiao will be next after Cotto.

Last year during a press conference for his fight with Victor Ortiz, Floyd Mayweather got the fans and the media all riled up when he called out Pacquiao and said, "... and Manny Pacquiao, yes, you're next."

The Internet was in a frenzy and everybody was waiting on Pacquiao for his response. Opinions quickly formulated and the divide between the two grew even stronger.

A little later though, close to fight night, when asked about it again, Mayweather claimed he never said Pacquiao was next.

This seems to be a growing trend.

A case where he brings up Pacquiao's name to fight to stir interest into his own fight. There might be a possibility of the two fighting later on after he gets out of jail.

Whatever the case may be, don't be surprised if he later retracts his statement and blames others for taking what he said in the wrong way.
