Pacquiao v Mayweather
It's a long established tradition in boxing and combat to trash talk your opponent, but it seems that nowadays with the advent of social media, things are taken up a notch, with humbugs being thrown out there. It is the Christmas season after all.
Philipino boxer Manny Pacquiao has taken to twitter to call out his rival Floyd Mayweather in an attempt to entice him into a fight.
Mayweather has long been accused of ducking a fight with Pacquiao, as they have yet to meet despite 5 years of negotiations. Mayweather has refuted these allegations saying:
Let's make the fight happen for the people and the fans. Mayweather versus Pacquiao, May 2, Cinco de Mayweather.
It looks positive for boxing fans who have been waiting an age for this fight to happen, but it remains to be seen if this is a new light, or will discussions break down again.
