In a recent interview with ESPN’s Keith Olbermann, Manny Pacquiao let him know where a fight stands between himself and supposed pound for pound king, Floyd Mayweather Jr. “I want the fight, but it’s up to him. What I can say now is our line is open 24 hours, seven days a week,” said Pacquiao. “So 24 hours, seven days a week, if he will call and say Yes, then the fight will be there.”
Currently Floyd Mayweather is asking fans to vote on who he should fight next between Amir Khan and Marcos Maidana. Neither of which pose much of a threat or create a entertaining matchup for Mayweather. He still hasn’t responded to Pacquiao’s challenge to fight and let both of their purses go to charity. In the past Mayweather has made it clear he fights for money, so don’t expect to hear a response from Floyd.
During the interview Olbermann asked Manny “is it something the sport needs and that the fans need and have been denied? Pacquiao replied “Thousands, millions of fans are waiting for that fight and been asking me many questions about when will that fight happen.” Pacquiao continued “I tell them I am willing to fight him any time but the problem is him (Floyd) he makes many reasons and many alibis. Operators are standing by 24 hours, seven days a week.”
The world will continue to wait for Mayweather versus Pacquiao.
