By Chris Robinson

During my recent conversation with Floyd Mayweather, the five-division world champion spoke on his scheduled return to the ring this coming May 3 in Las Vegas.

While not calling out any specific names for who he could be facing next, Mayweather did claim that whoever he meets is going to help him “do good numbers”, referring to his standing as the sport’s biggest pay per view draw.

Upon hearing Mayweather mention his star power, I instantly flashed to the reports that the Nov. 23 Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios HBO pay per view match had generated just 475,000 buys.

That number from Pacquiao was lower than many expected from him, as the Filipino star had stamped himself as a legitimate attraction in recent years by pulling successful numbers against the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito, Juan Manuel Marquez and others.

Asked for his take on Pacquiao’s tally for his fight against Rios, Mayweather seemed a bit disinterested.

“Nothing negative to say about Pacquiao,” Mayweather claimed. “This is a guy that is 1-2 in his last three fights. And I wish him nothing but the best. I don’t know which company he’s with, but the only company that I’m focused on at this particular time is Mayweather Promotions. And my fighters that are under my banner.

“All I can do is focus on myself,” Mayweather added.

As for whether or not there is a small part of him that would look at Pacquiao as an opponent in the future, Mayweather again chose not give a definitive answer.

“My focus is May 3,” Mayweather stated. “I don’t know who my opponent may be; if it’s Pacquiao, it’s Pacquiao. If it’s Amir Khan, it’s Amir Khan. For seventeen years they’ve been putting guys in front of me and I’ve been beating them. Come May they’ll put a guy in front of me, I’ll go to training camp, work hard, and the results will be the same.”

Pac at his strongest (Pac dominating, Mayweather says he's on roids), Mayweather doesn't want to fight him. Pac at his weakest (lost to Marquez and Bradley), Mayweather doesn't want to fight him. I agree with the guy who said that even if Pac pays Mayweather to fight him, he won't do it. D...
