Pambansang Kamao Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao never backs down in the ring as he wants to make his family and fellow countrymen proud. That is why when Floyd Mayweather brought up his name in an Instagram post recently he also fired back.
In Mayweather’s lengthy post he claimed that Pacman’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name.”
“It’s about time you all stop using my brand for clout chasing and click-bait and let that man’s name hold weight of its own,” he added.
He also pointed out that he easily defeated the Filipino boxing champ when they finally had a boxing match last May 2015, after Mayweather was repeatedly accused of avoiding having a match with Manny.
Mayweather was not so happy about the repetitive calls for a rematch with Manny. The undefeated American accused both experts and critics of being upset at him for breaking the legendary Rocky Mariano’s record.
Marciano popularly retired with a 49-0 win-loss record which Mayweather surpassed when he beat Conor McGregor for a 50-0 mark in August 2017.
“Y’all are just upset that I broke Rocky Marciano’s record and hate the fact that a black, high school dropout outsmarted you all by beating all odds and retiring undefeated while maintaining all my faculties simply by making smart choices and even smarter investments,” he said.
“Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh!”
However, Pacman did not let him have the “last laugh”
On Twitter, he tweeted that Mayweather has been using his name too, and event went to his fights as he continues to be an active boxer as Mayweather has already retired from boxing.
“You come to my fight and then use my name in a post but I’m the one that is trying to stay relevant?” he said. “If you want to be relevant again … #MayPac2.”
