Mayweather: The Media Built Manny Pacquiao To My Level

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. says Manny Pacquiao was never as good as the media made him out to be. Mayweather points to Pacquiao's recent back to back defeats to Tim Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez - and then points to past comments from press members who felt Pacquiao was on Mayweather's level or even better.

For at least four years, or more, there have been discissions about a Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, but the deal never happened for one reason or another. Mayweather does not expect a fight with Pacquiao to ever happen down the road.

"You guys [the media] built Pacquiao up to this level, and said he was better than Floyd Mayweather....you guys did. I'm not pointing a finger at no particular figure. I'm going to stay in my lane and I'm pretty sure that Pacquiao will stay in his lane," Mayweather said.

Mayweather challenges Saul "Canelo" Alvarez for the WBA/WBC 154-pound titles on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Pacquiao returns on November 23rd against Brandon Rios in Macao, China.

Of course the media is what made you scared to fight the pac-man shame on you media picking on poor Mayweather Junior.

Listen man he never wanted to fight the guy it's obvious, he waited for him to decline and now he has his wish, can't believe how many people kiss the dude's ass.

Pac built himself above and beyond floyds level by fighting and beating better fighters than Floyd. The media just acknowledged what they saw, just like boxing fans do. Floyd also believed the hype by requesting OSDTs and ducking Pac for dear life.

[QUOTE=Big Dunn]didn't bob say manny may never fight again in the US?[/QUOTE] That is a big relief for you.

The Pacquiao from 2009-2011 seemed to be at a skill set and physical peak. This version of him would have presented a challenge to FMJ. Not saying he would beat Floyd,...but would be a problem. This would no doubt be true the other way around. Yes,...Floyd soundly beat Marquez,..and we all know...
