The countdown to May 2nd has begun! Floyd “Money” Mayweather vs. Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada. Who will win it all? The two fighters came face to face today for their kickoff press conference.
Manny Pacquiao was doing an interview with NJ.com when he took a shot, which referenced recent rumors of the champ Floyd Mayweather being uneducated.
During the interview, Manny is quoted saying:
“I think I finally understand him: …what he says, …how he acts, …and I don’t like it. But what l learned and heard from him, well, I realize why he is like that. I understand sometimes when the people are not educated they just talk to talk. He sets a very bad example.”

Floyd Mayweather offers Manny Pacquiao some advice after getting KNOCKED OUT cold by Juan Manuel Marquez!
As far as the mega-fight with the Filipino icon is concerned, Mayweather suggests the manner in which Pacquiao was knocked out probably means he has a lot more to think about, and a long way to go, before that fight is ever a possibility again. “Pacquiao’s focus should be trying to take a vacation, get his mind right, and get a few tune-up fights so he can bounce back,” he explained. “I’m not here to talk bad about Pacquiao. I feel bad for him, honestly. I really feel bad for him. There’s a difference in the ways you can get knocked out. See, when a guy gets knocked out and he can get up, they sit him on his stool, they rub his back, he go home and ice himself, you know, he go to the hospital and get checked out and he’s okay, that’s one thing. But when you gotta wake a guy up with smelling salt and he got a concussion and he gotta go to the hospital over night, that’s crucial. I mean, that’s close to the death.”
