Pacquiao Dares Mayweather, Says Marquez Shot Lucky

By Edward Chaykovsky

Manny Pacquiao has come out swinging after being advised of the recent smack talk from Floyd Mayweather Jr. During Mayweather's ten city tour to promote his September 14th clash with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, he called Pacquiao a "has-been" and said the Filipino fighter's "career was over." 

Pacquiao, who faces Brandon Rios in November, dared Mayweather to face him if both fighters find success in the fall. Pacquiao also said Juan Manuel Marquez landed a "lucky punch" when the Mexican fighter knocked him cold in the sixth round of their fourth meeting last September.

"To us, he sounds cocky. He’s all talk. Why not stop the talk and say ‘let’s fight’ instead?,” Pacquiao said to ABS-CBN News. "I’m not a has been, I can still win fights. I lost because I took a hit. I wasn’t beaten up… it was just a lucky punch, which is part of the game).”

[QUOTE=Slip Stream;13573700]What I think is instructive is the $40 million guarantee Floyd's getting, heh, its what Manny would have made had they faced each other a few years ago. Manny dismissed himself by allowing Bob Arum to ultimately craft his…
