Floyd Mayweather: Pacquiao is an Unbelievable Fighter

WBA junior middleweight king Floyd Mayweather Jr. got his freedom back after being released from a Las Vegas jail last Friday following a 2 month stay for a dometic abuse charge. The boxing champion had not granted any interviews since his release, but PopStopTV was lucky enough to chat with him on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of 50 Cent's new movie Freelancers.

Floyd kept his answers brief because he didn't want to steal the spotlight away from 50, but he did comment on 50's success in movies, Manny Pacquiao and gave some advice to kids who wanted to follow in his footsteps. Mayweather and 50 recently started their promotional company, TMT Promotions.

"I'm always gonna support my friend 50 Cent. He's a great guy," Floyd said. "In the music industry he's done some record breaking things and I think he can do it also in the movie industry."

Floyd said that kids wanting to duplicate his success need to dedicate themselves and believe.

"Don't worry about failure," he said. "If you fall get right back up and keep striving for the best."

Regarding a Manny Pacquiao fight, Floyd had nice things to say about the Filipino boxer.

"I think Pacquiao's an unbelievable fighter and hopefully we can make the fight happen in the future."

Who wants this stupid fight? Who in his right mind wants to reward a DUCK with hundreds of millions of dollars for fighting a guy who has significantly slowed down? It's a effing insult.

[QUOTE=KRAFTSMAN;12424918]Seems Floyd is interested in making the fight now. Paqciao is no longer the dangerous boxer he feared for three years. Just goes to show that Floyd can make the fight happen if he really wanted to. Question you people…

[QUOTE=Reloaded;12424935]Only an idiot can possibly come to that conclusion based on ALL the evidence ![/QUOTE] The thing I don't get from Pac fans is.... If Manny is the one who didn't want to agree to random blood testing the way…
