Manny Pacquiao Says Floyd Mayweather “Needs Him”, Announces New Opponent


Manny Pacquiao is speaking out again on what could have been one of the biggest fights in boxing history, a bout with boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Pacquaio previously shook off criticism from the boxer’s father after he called him a “foolio” and “one of the biggest sissies on the planet” for not agreeing to drug testing.

Now the tables have turned and  Pacquiao is dishing out disses himself, this time saying that Money Mayweather, who he did not complete negotiations with for a fall fight, “needs him.”

Speaking in an interview with ESPN Pacquaio says;

“I don’t need him, he needs me…Compare my achievements in boxing to his achievements.”

Pacquiao also says that he eventually gave in to the boxer’s demands for the “Olympic style” blood testing but says Mayweather never got back in touch with him for negotiations.

He tells ESPN,

“Whatever he wanted to do, we were accepting it. Whatever he wanted, ‘I want to fight. I’ll agree to anything.’ I thought the fight was a shoo-in.”

Pacquiao is scheduled to fight former welterweight champ Margarito, Nov. 13 at Cowboys Stadium.

    Floyd don’t need this fool. He needs floyd. Floyd never been defeated. No matter what fight pacuiao has he will never reach that status of floyd. I think floyd holding on to make the fight greater than it’s already is. Building the hype.

  • josh solis

    Floyd to move up in middleweight? It is a joke! At welterweight class, Floyd do want to exhange punches with Margarito, then he hide from cotto and recently he is ducking with pacquiao,,, so so embarrassing! He better quit boxing! Boxing ring is only for warriors!!! Chicken should be kept inside the ref!

    I think May is an excellent boxer. 1 of the greats. But to be the best u got 2 bet the best. Pac is the olny contender that can give May the ultimate status and Legacy of the pound 4 pound best in the sport. Pac gave in to his rules(which to me was bullShyte, being that u never asked 4 these rules in other matches) & still no fight. Sounds like May is a bit nervous. *Questioning if he can win* I know Pac trying to do other thing than boxing in the coming years. If May never get that fight……… Just like JB said U get the “Title” when & if he beats Pac. other than that. May u could have been the best……

  • GreenNYC

    Get of manny package. Y’all mofo act like after a mofo builds his brand up he suppose to jump in the ring when y’all want him to. If you fools been listening this ain’t about titles it’s about what this sport can do for me. Show me the money Mofo. Floyd retires and all of a sudden pacuiao the best that ever did it. GTFOOH. When he fights good ppl y’all quite. Why y’all mad. Cause he not jumping when yall want him to.

  • Da Boss

    No you are the idiot, if Pacquiao really wanted to fight Floyd he would have simply agreed to the blood testing instead of trying to claim that drawing a couple of viles of blood was going to make him weak. amazingly he refuses to fight Floyd and instead fights a guy who spent 12 rounds just laying on the ropes getting hit. Floyd on the other hand took on Shane Mosely and won in his usual splendid fashion. Pacquiao is nothing but hot air. Speaking of Cotto wasn’t that him that Margarito beat the crap out of?

  • tiredofit

    If he is REALLY “Money” Mayweather and is such a baller he should be able to pay tha cars he flashes. Last year before he fought Marquez he had a Mercades Maybach repo’d. He is a phony. It cost $512,184 and he had to borrow $415,695 from Chase Bank. When it was repo’d he still owed $363,000 on tha car. After tha bank sold it to recoup some $ he still owes $167,192. Yea….he is a BIG baller flashing stuff he REALLY cant pay for. Wonder why he came out of retirement….hes d*mn near broke! I dont mean poor ppl broke, I’m talking bout rich folk broke. There is a big difference.

  • fighting manny pacman paquiao is dandarous to ur health.. pacman WILL SURELY WIN BY BRUTALLY KNOCK FLOYD OUT

  • dexfer

    if not pacman calls him he will fight…
    he duck cotto he made excuses about cotto is too far
    thats y he dont want to fight he is scared of cotto that time…
    when pac destroy cotto he was pissing scared that the boxer he was ducking is (cotto) no match to pacman…
    dont be blind or ur a mayweayther clan protecting ur clan its good^_^ u going back again when pacman refuse 4 the first time becoz it is not the rules in boxing, boxing runs in many many years they dont have that rules many undefeated fighter never do that rules undefeated is nothing when all boxing fans want u to fight the best like pacman…

    mayweather is scared of power and speed of pacman clearly he knows that thats y he made many excuses he will be remembered as undefeated but nothing to prove in short coward of all coward…
    he claims and claims that he is the best of all time and better than ali but he is afraid of pacman…

    we all know he has all the advantage size and weight coz pacman is new in welterweight…but he dont want to fight when he know he will lose coz pacman cannot get paid, like mosley and marquez get paid becoz we know marquez in lightweigth is close decision againts pacman…

    • so that he can boast that he defeat marquez and mosley…

  • Jaye

    Floyd is afraid of this guy. It’s obvious he can’t win against him that is why he won’t fight him!!

  • EmantheFirst

    i always trip out when i hear”he should just take the test(s)”. This is not the Olympics!!! This is Floyd’s way of dodging the fight.How can you just demand that someone take more tests than the required amount for the fight? Who the hell is he?Manny was right to refuse. He only relented cuz he wanted the fight. What happened then? Haven’t heard from Floyd since. GTFOH.

  • say whatever

    granted floyd is a great fighter but he would not agree to fight pac until he took a blood test, done, so what is he waiting for now now. floyd and his daddy was talking bad about pac, now the man wanna fight they quiet as a mouse. to me thats some weak a** s**t

  • BustHerUp

    Floyd scared to death of Pac Man. I think he’ll whip Mannys a** but he’s definitely scared of him. He brought up the drug testing then when Manny said ok , he cries about his uncle getting locked up ( he’s fought when Roger Mayweather was hemmed up before). He’s handpicked opponents and ducked serious challengers before ( Margarito, Cotto ex) but he shouldn’t duck Manny because I feel he’ll pick him apart and destroy him.

    • artdude01

      I don’t know… remember when Shane Mosley caught Floyd and damn near knocked him out? Well, if that was a hit from Manny, he would’ve been knocked out. Manny usually doesn’t sit back and let a fighter get comfortable, this would be an interesting fight, because I don’t think Floyd’s standard wait-n-counter will work too well. Manny’s shots hurt bad.

    nice try to avoid the fight go to the court gayweather if u have proof and evidence all u said is a lie ur a liar…

    LIE – A lie (also called prevarication, falsehood) is a known untruth expressed as truth.

    A lie is a type of deception in the form of an untruthful statement, especially with the intention to deceive others, often with the further intention to maintain a secret or reputation, protect someone’s feelings or to avoid a punishment or repercussion for one’s actions. To lie is to state something that one knows to be false or that one does not honestly believe to be true with the intention that a person will take it for the truth. A liar is a person who is lying, who has previously lied, or who tends by nature to lie repeatedly – even when not necessary.

    Lying is typically used to refer to deceptions in oral or written communication. Other forms of deception, such as disguises or forgeries, are generally not considered lies, though the underlying intent may be the same. However, even a true statement can be used to deceive. In this situation, it is the intent of being overall untruthful rather than the truthfulness of any individual statement that is considered the lie.

    Serious lies (such as perjury, fraud, and defamation) are punishable by law.
    – (v. i.) To utter falsehood with an intention to deceive; to say or do that which is intended to deceive another, when he a right to know the truth, or when morality requires a just representation.

    LIAR – A, Falsehood, Knowingly, One, Person, Who,
    – n. One that tells lies.
    – A person who tells lies, doesn’t tell the truth.
