WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. says his next opponent will be decided within a week. One thing's for sure, it's not Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather Jr., who arrived in South Africa on Wednesday, said the following regarding his next opponent for May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - "we don't know. We will know within the next seven days."
The undefeated Mayweather, now 45-0 after dominating Canelo Alvarez for a majority decision in September, also passed off Pacquiao's renewed attempts at making their mega-fight happen as desperation because of the Filipino star's tax issues.
Mayweather said of Pacquiao "two losses and tax problems later, now he all of a sudden want to say: `You know what? I'd do anything to make the fight happen.'"
