Pacquiao Takes Another Swipe at Mayweather Over Nasukawa KO - BoxingScene.com

Manny Pacquiao has been fully focused on next weekend’s fight with Adrien Broner but on Thursday the Filipino eight-division world champion still found time to take a subtle jab at Floyd Mayweather.

  Manny Pacquiao has been fully focused on next weekend’s fight with Adrien Broner but on Thursday the Filipino eight-division world champion still found time to take a subtle jab at Floyd Mayweather.

  Pacquiao, who has been repeatedly asked about a possible rematch with Mayweather, pulled no punches when commenting on his former foe’s one-sided New Year’s Eve exhibition victory over Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa that lasted two minutes.

  It was the second time in as many weeks that Pacquiao has taken a shot at Mayweather - who said he earned $9 million for fighting Nasukawa - with the Filipino having also tweeted after the fight that his New Year’s resolution would be to “only fight experienced opponents who are my size or bigger.”

  Mayweather, 41, retired in 2017 with a 50-0 record and said on Instagram in September that a rematch of the much-hyped 2015 fight with Pacquiao would take place.

  Pacquiao may be eyeing a lucrative rematch with Mayweather but he refused to shows his cards and said such talk would have to wait until after next week’s welterweight title defence.
