Floyd Mayweather Erupts On His Haters Wanting Pacquiao Rematch, Upset That He Broke Rocky Marciano’s Record (PIC)
Floyd Mayweather is sick and tired of hearing his name every time Manny Pacquiao does anything inside a boxing ring. Pacquiao defeated unbeaten Keith Thurman for the WBA welterweight title on Saturday night and wouldn’t take long for his handlers to make it clear that he was ready fro a rematch with Mayweather.
In an Instagram post written Tuesday night, Mayweather ripped Pacquiao and said the Filipino star owed his career legacy to him and called out his distractors for being upset that he broke Rocky Marciano’s record.
“I find it real ironic how every time Pacquiao’s name is brought up in the media, my name is always attached to it,” Mayweather wrote on his account. “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.”
Mayweather won a twelve round unanimous decision over Pacquiao in May of 2015.
“My take on all this bulls**t is that y’all are just upset that I broke Rocky Marciano’s [49-0] 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,” Mayweather wrote. “Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh!”
Mayweather retired back in August of 2017, when he defeated UFC superstar Conor McGregor in the tenth round.
