Floyd Mayweather mocks ‘Manny Roach’ on Christmas

See also

Fight News reported that Floyd Mayweather used Twitter on Christmas morning to tease Manny Pacquiao and Freddie Roach.

Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) took a picture with a man who comically resembled a blend of the 34-year-old Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KOs) and Roach and posted the shot online.

“Manny Pacquaio mixed with Freddie Roach. Meet my friend, Manny Roach,” tweeted Mayweather, 36, the reigning pound-for-pound king.

Finances and drug testing protocols have long been roadblocks to cementing an absurdly lucrative clash between Mayweather and Pacquiao.

“The Fighting Pride of the Philippines” earned a lopsided unanimous decision over Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios to capture the WBO international welterweight title last month at the CotaiArena in Macau.

Shortly thereafter, the WBC installed Pacquiao as the top contender for Mayweather’s welterweight belt.

“Pretty Boy” will re-enter the squared circle to throw fists with a challenger to be named on May 3.

Mayweather can face any opponent he wants on the aforementioned date.

However, following the springtime bout, “Pretty Boy” may be obligated to battle Pacquiao or be forced to relinquish the crown.

Unfortunately for boxing fans, Mayweather refuses to negotiate with the team of Pacquiao and promoter Bob Arum.

So, instead of settling their rivalry like men, Floyd Mayweather will continue using social media outlets to jab Manny Pacquiao.
