The critically acclaimed boxer Floyd Mayweather, has attacked his compatriot Manny Pacquiao on his Facebook Page, and allegedly claims that ‘Pacquiao’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with his name (Mayweather Team), and that it’s about time he stop using his brand for clout chasing and clickbait and let his own name hold weight of its own.’
Below is his full statement:
‘I find it real ironic how every time Pacquiao’s name is brought up in the media, my name is always attached to it. This man’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name and it’s about time you all stop using my brand for clout chasing and clickbait and let that man’s name hold weight of its own. For years, all you heard was that ” Floyd is afraid of Manny Pacquiao”.
‘But what’s funny is, when we finally fought, I won so easily that everyone had to eat their words! All of the so called boxing experts, critics and jealous American “fan base” either went mute and ran for cover or made every excuse in the world as to why I should give Manny Pacquiao a rematch.
‘My take on all this bullshit is that y’all are just upset that I broke Rocky Marciano’s record and hate the fact that a Black, high school dropout outsmarted you all by beating all odds and retiring undefeated while maintaining all my faculties simply by making smart choices and even smarter investments. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh!’
