Floyd Mayweather had hinted even before he fought Shane Mosley last year that he would possibly retire. He had proven he was the best pound for pound fighter, held multiple titles at once and had already made more money than he could spend in this lifetime.
With the emergence of Manny Pacquiao over the past few years, though, people think he can challenge Mayweather for his crown.
The Pacquiao-Mayweather megafight has lost its steam ever since it first started brewing in 2009, but it hasn’t lost its luster. It is still the only fight fans want to see involving each of the two.
Pacquiao, known for his unusual politeness for him to be a boxer, has explained ever since 2009 all he wants to do is fight. It is his camp, mainly trainer Freddie Roach, who does Pacquiao’s trash talking.
Mayweather, known for his antics inside and outside the ring, is the complete opposite. Mayweather is the kind of person who loves getting under your skin. He is going to talk trash before, during and after the fight. But why can’t he? I mean he is undefeated.
If someone wants to shut him up, they’re going to have to knock him out. However, it’s not going to be Victor Ortiz, who Mayweather announced will be his next fight later this year.
It’s going to have to be Pacquiao, if he can even do it. But until that fight is set in stone, the only fighting between these two will be through the media. Here are the reasons these two hate each other:
