Pacquiao: If Mayweather Calls To Fight, Then It Will Be On

By Edward Chaykovsky

Eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao is still very determined to land a fight with career rival Floyd Mayweather Jr. Both of them will be in action in the coming months.

Pacquiao challenges WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley in a rematch on April 12th. Mayweather returns on May 3rd against either Amir Khan or Marcos Maidana. Both fights will be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“All I can say, our hotline is open 24 hours,” Pacquiao said to Sports Illustrated. “If he calls us and let us know, if he wants to fight, then the fight will be on....[I will take the call] 24/7.”

Mayweather actually did call Pacquiao in January of 2012, and offered the Filipino boxer a guaranteed $40 million dollars for a May fight. Pacquiao passed, requesting a 50-50 split - but has since changed his position - willing to give Mayweather the advantage with a 60-40 ratio.

[QUOTE=The Big Dunn;14213825]Why would anyone belive that if floyd calls manny again manny would say yes? Manny is always willing to say yes except when floyd calls him with an offer or when he has an offer on the table.…
