Floyd Mayweather has not yet announced his plans of a return to boxing but if the undefeated American boxer does return to the ring, it appears it won’t be against nemesis Manny Pacquiao.
In a recent interview, Mayweather stated that other fighters both in boxing and mixed martial arts are just using his name “to stay relevant.” Mayweather also added that any talks of a rematch with Pacquiao is “totally false.”
Mayweather’s statement is the opposite of what his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., said as the latter claimed in a recent podcast that “Pacquiao can get it again” referring to a Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch if his son returns to boxing.
“Any time you hear a trainer or someone…they said that my father said something about that. It doesn’t matter what my fathers says. My father can only express his opinion on what he feels, but I’m letting every know as of right now, I’m not interested in fighting anyone,” Mayweather said to Fight Hype about his boxing plans.
Mayweather also grabbed the chance to bash Pacquiao stating that he dominated the Filipino in their fight in May 2015. The official scorecards showed Mayweather winning with scores of 116-112, 118-110 and 116-112.
“I don’t want to hear this anymore, Floyd Mayweather-Pacquiao. That’s over with. That chapter is over with. That’s totally over with. I don’t want to hear nothing else about Mayweather-Pacquiao. That’s not going to ever happen again. That will never happen again. Never. Out of 12 rounds and I win 10 out of 12 rounds, why should I have to prove myself? Blowout!” Mayweather added referring to the boxing match that drew the best pay-per-view numbers in the history of the sport.
Mayweather retired from boxing last September 2015 going undefeated in 49 career fights. Pacquiao is also set to retire from the sport after his fight against Timothy Bradley in April later this year.
