• Pacquiao camp ignores Floyd’s taunts on Twitter


    pacquiaoManny Pacquiao’s camp just ignored the latest taunts of Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Twitter.

    The unbeaten Mayweather, 36, who holds 45-0 win-loss slate with 26 knockouts, posted his photo on his Twitter account @FloydMayweather holding a pile of cash with the text: “I’ll pay you $40 million (US dollars). The other photo shows Pacquiao with the words: “No way you’re crazy 50-50 or nothing.” The third photo shows
    Pacquiao knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez on December 2012. The last photo shows the Filipino champ praying with a caption: “Dear God please have Floyd call me again.”

    “That’s nothing and Manny doesn’t care. He [Mayweather] doesn’t want to fight,” Gerry Peñalosa told The Manila Times in a phone interview a day after the Christmas.

    “He is just using the name of Pacquiao to advertise and promote his next upcoming fight. It’s an old strategy.” Peñalosa, a former super bantamweight world champion, is now Pacquiao’s partner in a boxing promotion outfit.

    Mayweather Jr. is set to fight in May against a yet to be named foe while Pacquiao (55-5-2 record with 38 knockouts) is also set to fight late April next year.

    Another post of Mayweather Jr. shows a photo of an Asian male with the caption: “Manny Pacquaio mixed with Freddie Roach. Meet my friend, Manny Roach.”

    Pacquiao’s long-time Canadian adviser Mike Koncz also laughed at Mayweather’s latest act, saying, “I just smiled because at least Floyd is thinking of us in some way.”

      I reckon Manny should take the 40-60 $$$ split as we all know that Manny will kick Mayweather’s ass and then on the rematch, however, this time the term should be on Manny’s side. The initial match should be just to set the much awaited bout. This should be the term and condition on the contract. After all, the $40m take home purse still way too hefty compared to any of Manny’s previous fights.
