Floyd Mayweather Jr: : I'm in a no-win situation vs Manny Pacquiao

edit <-- video has been replaced

Floyd Mayweather Jr. gets defensive. Watch the video to hear the lame-o excuses.

He's trying to make it look like the Pacman's avoiding him ... forgetting that Freddie Roach called him out right after the fight.

Plus he's trying to explain why even if he wins, he still loses against the Pacman. Or maybe he's justifying why he doesn't want to fight Pacquiao.

(Pacman has always allowed his promoters and team members to be the ones to iron out who he fights and at what terms. He's not afraid of you, Floyd. He's just being true to form.)

And speaking of being true to form: weren't you the one making noises about wanting a 65-35 split of the purse if you went up against Pacquiao -- supposedly because you're a bigger crowd drawer? Well, not anymore, huh? Now you have to scramble to come up with silly excuses like these to avoid facing your first ever loss.

If you're really that good, Floyd, you could beat Manny Pacquiao EVEN IF the price wasn't right. Agree to a 50 - 50 split and we'll see if you really are the best boxer in the world and the pound for pound king -- see, the only one who thinks and says that it's you is , well, you.

Manny Pacquiao doesn't need to prove anything anymore -- he could hang up his gloves and say goodbye, and he'd still have achieved something much bigger than you could ever do.

And that's not just about achieving titles in seven weight classes. He brought boxing back from the dead. He made boxing worth watching again. Whereas you... you turned it into a snoozefest. You bring boring to the table and who wants to watch that?

EDIT:

Here's the transcript just in case the video gets removed:

"The thing is with Pacquiao I don't see any versatility as a fighter; he's a good puncher but just one-dimensional."

"When they asked Manny Pacquiao 'would you like to fight Floyd Mayweather' he said talk to my promoter; they didn't ask your promoter they asked you, what do you want to do? Manny Pacquiao was asked the same question 'do you want to fight Floyd Mayweather' three times. This is something the world is trying to force on him. If he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather all he has to do is step up to the plate."

"I'm in a no-win situation. If I beat Manny Pacquiao, do you know what they are going to say? 'You are supposed to beat him, you are Floyd Mayweather, you are the bigger man'. If I knock him out they'll say 'you're supposed to knock him out he's been knocked out before'."

"I'm in a no-win situation and when I beat him no one is going to be surprised because he's been beaten before; whatever I do to Pacquiao has been done before - he's been beaten on three occasions. And if I knock him out I don't want the world shouting because he's been knocked out twice before."

"If I go out and make $60-75 million in one night; come on - I'm not losing. Can Manny Pacquiao beat me? Absolutely not."

"The world's going to go 'wow' if Floyd Mayweather gets beaten. That's what everyone is looking to see. What's going on now at the world of boxing is they're trying to build a fighter, make a fighter that can beat me."

"I don't get no respect in the world of boxing. I do my interviews, you got different fighters that disrespect me, and come in on my interviews, which is not fair. Now Manny Pacquiao when he does his interviews, he can do his interviews for 20 minutes, then they go interview his trainers, and the rest of the people in his team. Now, with me, they interview me, they got guys jumping in, being very disrespectful."

"I'm not saying Cotto is not a good fighter, flat-footed, been in a lot of wars. There's nothing cool about taking punishment. 'Oh, I beat this guy up he beat me up. I got a swell eye, a rip lip, bloody nose, a broken rib, made a few million, and my hand got raised.' There's nothing cool about taking punishment."

"Floyd Mayweather beat 13 world champions, 6 time world champion, in 5 different weight classes, and won official belts. I beat fighters at official classes, and I move up to 130. No different than Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao weigh 106 when he was 16, just like Floyd Mayweather."

"My career is fine, what's so cool is I can take no punishment, no bumps, no bruises. When my career is over I have a job as a commentator, and I will be a great promoter. That's the great thing about my career, I can't speak for other fighter."


-- this is actually a better video since it's more complete and shows more of Mayweather's side than the previous one I posted. Nevertheless, I stand by what I said in the post.
