There won’t be another fight in the ring between undefeated five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and eight-division world titleholder Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather, who blew in town on Wednesday, said so, snuffing out talks that he will go for another shot at Pacquiao.
“Absolutely not.” said the 45-year-old Mayweather, who returned to the Philippines for another business deal with beauty and health brand Frontrow.
Mayweather last went to the Philippines back in May 2019, promoting a Thermage procedure, and became an endorser of the Belo Medical Group.
The famed boxer discussed his recent encounter with Pacquiao when he led the inauguration of the brand’s newest building in Quezon Avenue, Quezon City.
It will be recalled that Mayweather defeated Pacquiao via unanimous decision in their 2015 Battle for Greatness blockbuster bout at the historic MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“I’ve already had my hard fights from 1987 to 2017. “So, now everything is just entertaining and just having fun,” said Mayweather.
Before going to Manila, Mayweather had knocked out MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura in a fight witnessed by Pacquiao at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
“Just the other day, I was in Tokyo competing in another boxing exhibition. It was great to see the eight-division world champion, Manny Pacquiao. He’s such a great guy, such a great champion. He represents the Filipinos, the Filipino culture like no other. So I have to take my hand out to Manny Pacquiao, great guy, unbelievable athlete.”
