And after the long wait, the fight between the two boxers is finally happening. Oh well, at least on social media.
They may not be exchanging solid punches but their Twitter war is starting to heat up.
Just few days ago, Pacquiao took shots at Mayweather and his apparently fictionalized reality Showtime All Access series on Twitter. In the show’s second episode, a pair of Mayweather’s protégés had an epic 31-minute sparring session inside Mayweather’s gym. Earlier in the episode, Mayweather lounged while a number of people smoked marijuana around him.
And although Mayweather said that it was fake and the show was heavily scripted to promote his fight, it didn’t stop Pacman from reacting and share a tweet on Wednesday.
He posted the same photo on Instagram and wrote a caption: “My new boxing DVD is coming soon and is called “3 Ways to Sleep”. Back, Face and Butt and I’m Falling & I Can’t Get Up. Miss Pac Man is broke and desperate for a pay day. Your Pay-Per-View numbers are a joke. ”
Mayweather received several negative reactions on social media with almost all of them saying that he is just making all excuses not to fight the Filipino boxing champ.
What are your thoughts about Mayweather’s latest attempt to draw attention? Do you think he will ever fight Pacquiao or will he forever make his excuses and just retire without facing Pacman? Let us know in the comments below.
