“First and foremost, not only do I want to fight Manny Pacquiao, I want to whip his punk ass.” – Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The on again, off again super-fight drama between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao continued today. The rub has been drug-testing procedures and Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s rep, has used that as a crutch for his client. Yesterday Arum messaged that the fight was off (again) after intense negotiation. He claimed that Mayweather’s unwillingness to change his stance on drug-testing was the reason. Today Mayweather cleared the air.
“Throughout this whole process I have remained patient but at this point I am thoroughly disgusted that Pacquiao and his representatives are trying to blame me for the fight not happening when clearly the blame is on them,” Mayweather said in a statement.
