Floyd Mayweather junior insists he doesn’t fear Manny Pacquiao

The five-division world champion and the current WBC welterweight champion, Floyd Mayweather junior, has recently challenged the eight-division world champion and the current WBO welterweight champion, Manny Pacquiao, for a mega-fight on May 5. However, his offer was turned down by the Filipino star after he said he will not have a 50/50 split.

A general perception among the fans is this that Mayweather never wanted a fight with Pacquiao and this was just another excuse from him.

Nevertheless, the undefeated American legend, who holds an incredible record of winning all of his 42 professional fights, including 26 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, disagrees with the fact.

Mayweather told the media he doesn’t fear anyone at all and the reason why he has offered a 70-30 split to Pacquiao is because he is the biggest draw right now.

The American superstar claimed he will be the winner, if he ever meets Pacquiao in the ring.

“I don’t fear no man. I don’t fear nothing,” Mayweather told NBC when asked if he was scared of Pacquiao. “And so if you are insinuating that I’m a scared fighter then why would you want to watch a scared fighter?

“Can’t no fighter beat Floyd Mayweather. And if the Pacquiao fight presents itself, and everything is in order like it should be, I’ll be victorious.

“He had a chance to step up to the plate, if you had done your homework – May in the past – Pacquiao has said, ‘You know what, I would take less money but I didn’t want to do the drug test’. Now he’s saying, ‘I will do the drug test, but I want 50-50’. Like I said, it is what it is.”

Mayweather and Pacquiao are considered as the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world and a fight between them is expected to be the biggest in the history of sports – worth $100million.

Therefore, let’s hope this dream-fight gets made since almost everyone out there anxiously wants to see both stars taking on each other in the ring.
