Mayweather Talks Pacquiao, Ortiz, Merchant, De La Hoya

By Chris LaBate

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. recently sat down with DJ. Whoo Kid for an exclusive interview, and discussed several subjects - including the fourth round knockout over Victor Ortiz, a possible fight with WBO champ Manny Pacquiao, the problem with HBO broadcaster Larry Merchant, and more.

Thoughts on Facing Manny Pacquiao

I'm not really concerned about a guy who has something to hide. I do what I do and he do what he do. I beat fighters when they are undefeated. I beat fighters when they are at the top. He fights my leftovers. They say if you the best, take the test.

Thoughts on Pacquiao Facing Juan Manuel Marquez

Manny Pacquiao fought Marquez twice already and he knocked Marquez down a few times, but Marquez won more rounds. When it's all said and done, they had a draw the first time and Pacquiao won by one point the second time. I took two years off, came back and fought Marquez and it was easy work. They say I was too big for Marquez, but I'm not too big for Pacquiao and they both the same size.

Thoughts on the Beef With Larry Merchant

I guess it comes with the territory. He's supposed to be a boxing expert but he's never fought in the ring. The only thing I was trying to do was tell the people who came out to Las Vegas and spent money, and people who bought pay-per-view. I wanted to tell them 'thank you' and he kept asking me the same question over and over again.

Larry Merchant, Emanuel Steward, Jim Lampley - they are all just hoping that they can find a fighter who can beat me. Like I've said before, they might have to build a robot. I prefer Lennox Lewis or guys that boxed before, been inside the squared circle to talk to me.

Thoughts on Victor Ortiz Trying To Get a Rematch

This dude is trying is trying to stay relevant. He;'s no longer relevant. I made the dude famous on 24/7 and gave a few million. I got him on 24/7, he keeps nagging and bitching. I'm like 'fall back' dude. We touched gloves before the fight, we don't need to touch gloves during the fight and all this kissing and hugging and unnecessary stuff. We don't need all that, the people want to see us fight.

Who's Next For Mayweather

We don't know who's next. We just want to give the people what they want to see.

Thoughts on The Beef With Oscar De La Hoya.

The dude jealous of me. He's jealous. The golden girls
