“He’s scared to death” – Manny Pacquiao offers insight into Floyd Mayweather rematch talk

Posted by

Manny Pacquiao has revealed his belief that Floyd Mayweather will never again agree to meet him in the boxing ring.

Pacquiao has once before gone toe-to-toe with Mayweather back in 2015, losing the fight via unanimous decision on the scorecards.

Ever since the conclusion of that fight, there has been continual talk of the pair meeting again in the ring, whether it be a professional fight or exhibition.

Pacquiao appears open to the idea of taking the fight, but he is insistent that Mayweather would never agree to fight him again – he’s too scared.

talkSPORT’s Michael Benson quotes Pacquiao saying, “I don’t think that will happen because he’s scared to death to face me in the ring again.

“He’s scared. From the beginning he’s felt intimidated [by] me and scared to face me.” It’s an interesting theory considering, as previously stated, they have fought before.

Ultimately, while Floyd is making millions upon millions fighting influencers, why would he risk fighting one of the greatest pound-for-pound boxers ever? It wouldn’t make much sense.
