Mayweather: I had to fight Cotto as ‘Miss Pacman’ ducked!

Phil Jay 02/02/2012

WBA light-middleweight title challenger and current WBC welterweight champion Floyd ‘Money Mayweather couldn’t resist one final dig at rival Manny Pacquiao after he announced his May 5th bout yesterday afternoon.

The 34 year-old, who has signed on to challenge Miguel Cotto for a ninth world title in the spring, took to his social media bases on Facebook and Twitter to lambast the Filipino for not accepting his forty million dollar offer to fight.

“I am fighting Cotto on May 5th because Miss Pac Man is ducking me,” stated the five –weight world champion, who will begin a jail term just four weeks after his fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao, 33, is overwhelmingly tipped to oppose Timothy Bradley on June 9th at the same venue and it is still hoped that both fighters can agree to a November clash – once Mayweather has served his 90-day prison sentence.
