Manny Pacquiao on Tuesday responded to Floyd Mayweather Jr., who Friday night during an interview on a Showtime Boxing telecast called on Pacquiao to make their long-anticipated fight that would – even now – likely break all gate and pay-per-view records.
Mayweather said, “Let’s make this fight happen for the people and the fans,” on Friday night. Pacquiao came back with this tweet on Tuesday:
@FloydMayweather, “don’t be a boxing humbug. Let’s give the fans the fight they want. They have waited long enough.”
If the fight were to come to fruition, it could be May 2, the date of Mayweather’s next fight.
