Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul finally squared off against each other in an exhibition boxing match on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. With a lot of hype surrounding the match, fans were eagerly excited to see who would come out on top.
For a lot of fans, the boxing match was full of entertainment as both Paul and Mayweather went the distance in the match, which was something many fans did not expect at all. The match was also panned by many for not being a proper boxing match.
While speaking in the post-fight conference, Mayweather would take a shot at his former opponent Manny Pacquiao for still having to box inside the ring in order to make a living.
“When I come and do an exhibition or come out and box and have some fun, I do it because I want to do it, not because I have to do it. Whereas Pacquiao at his age, it’s sad that he has to fight. I’m financially set and I want to let everybody know this.”
While speaking on the Power & Play Show, Manny Pacquiao finally responded to Floyd Mayweather’s remarks and sent a massive shot of his own to Mayweather, calling him out for facing non-boxers.
“Some other fighters challenge non-boxers just to get paid. I want to fight. I want to challenge the best… If I’m fighting for the money, then I would have picked some scrub to fight. Why would I try to fight an undefeated fighter if I’m just chasing the pay check? This is a real fight,”
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao faced off in 2015 in what was billed as the ‘Fight of the Century.’ Mayweather would win the fight after 12 rounds. The two have teased a rematch on multiple occasions but it is unlikely to happen at this point in time.
