Floyd Mayweather reacts to Manny Pacquiao, Conor, Canelo rematch talk
Floyd Mayweather is confident he will remain undefeated as reports continue of a possible rematch with Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather is locked in talks with the Filipino Senator, according to Pacquiao in a recent offering in the Business Times.
“Negotiations are on-going. There will be updates about the negotiations in one to two weeks time,” said the ‘Pacman’.
Pushed on the constant reports whilst out and about in Los Angeles this week, Mayweather was brash in his reply.
“Nobody can beat me! You all already know that,” Mayweather told a TMZ videographer. “Everybody wants a rematch with me.”
“Don’t worry about that,” said the former pound for pound king, attempting to switch attention to his multi-million-pound watch.
After being asked about Oscar De La Hoya’s comments on a Canelo rematch being worth up to $1.5 billion, Floyd replied: “Yeah, yeah, yeah … everybody’s saying something.
“I don’t worry about that. I already made over a billion! You already know that!”
“I’m not worried about all that my man. Floyd is undefeated. Nobody can beat me. You already know that, man!”
Pacquiao remains the favorite to haul Mayweather out of retirement. Mayweather recently turned 42 and needs to strike while the iron is hot.
A guaranteed $100 million check awaits Mayweather on Showtime Pay-Per-View for a second installment with Pacquiao. A payday which seems too much for the ‘Money’ man to pass up.
Conor McGregor has also been putting the feelers out on a return with Mayweather. Although public demand would suggest ‘MayMc 2’ wouldn’t have as much impact as a world title challenge against Pacquiao.
Strength and conditioner Justin Fortune has urged Mayweather to act fast and secure Pacquiao II in earnest.
“Manny looked good against Broner and maybe, Floyd’s not too keen on risking his undefeated record. That zero in Floyd’s record is important to him. To me, I don’t think it’s that important.
“Floyd hasn’t fought a real contender in a while. If the rematch doesn’t happen this year, it may not ever happen. If you wait until next year, they’ll be a year older.
“Floyd will be 43. Fans might lose interest in a rematch if they’re kept waiting too long,” Fortune told The Philippine Star.
