Floyd Mayweather’s ESPN Interview Heats Up
Total Pro Sports – Following the Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton fight, the debate ensued on who is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Your choices? Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. That same debate resurfaced between Floyd and an ESPN broadcaster during a TV interview with the boxing star via satellite.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather, as he likes to call himself, is set to fight Juan Marquez on July 18th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, but the main focus of the discussion seemed to be on the possibility of a Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight, much to the dismay of Floyd. After being asked the question on whether he should be chasing Manny, Mayweather continued to defend his thrown as best fighter in the world. At times the conversation got heated, especially when it was suggested that Floyd was the best pound-for-pound fighter until he retired, and now Pacquiao holds that reign.
Floyd Mayweather ends the argument by pointing to Manny’s losses, and then states “Pacquiao can be called the best pound for pound, you just call me the cash king, you know stats don’t lie.” You are right Floyd. Stats don’t lie. And that’s why you are still number one, but the doubters continue to grow now. So all that’s left for us to winder is whether we will ever get to see Pacquiao vs Mayweather? If the boxing gods are kind, the answer will undoubtedly be “YES”.
