August 2017, retired, is “Pac-Man” want to continue to reported to actively fight, and currently the WBA Super Champ in the Limit, against the various challengers (BOXING). That is what Mayweather did in an Interview with “fighthype.com” “It is sad to hear these guys say: ‘I want to fight Manny Pacquiao.’ But Manny is now 41. Not chasing after him. You young guys are supposed to chase you each other. Stop, the old man chasing. If the opportunity presents itself, then goes out and does what you need to do. Manny Pacquiao let his opponent pick and choose.“

In an Interview with the “Manila Times” was mentioned by the Filipino Champ on these statements. “Mayweather jr. is just jealous because he has already put to rest. We are still active and have a title,“ he told the newspaper. Of a retreat into the old part of he wants to know nothing: “No plans at the moment, no Problem.

Compared to “Boxingscene.com” he explained his statement: “If I go as a Boxer in the Ring, and the people popping up – this is what Manny Pacquiao does. Floyd could do it too, but not so much. It was a different Level of excitement.“ Porter continued: “to say If Manny goes out and the road runs up and down, then more people are willing to shake hands with him or ‘hi’ than to cut a Grimace to confront him or something. I think a lot of people Floyd Mayweather today not to appreciate what he has done for the Sport, because it is overshadowed by some of the things he has done outside the sport.“
