It seems like WBC welterweight titlist Floyd Mayweather Jr. is concerned regarding the possibility of a super-fight against Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao. While analysts and fans believe that the super-fight is now nearly over, Mayweather has once again started the talks, at least with the media for now.
According to the WBC champion, he had offered $40 million to Manny Pacquiao, which would have been the biggest payday of his career. According to Mayweather, numbers do not lie and that is the figure he had quoted to Pacquiao.
Unfortunately, following Pacquiao’s knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez on December 9, the super-fight seems to be jeopardy now. Mayweather is already scheduled to fight twice in 2013, once in May and once in September. His possible opponents include Robert Guerrero and Saul Alvarez. Chances of a fight against Pacquiao are rare but not impossible.
