Mayweather Willing To Advise Pacquiao on His Boxing Future

Last month in Malaysia, Manny Pacquiao snapped a one year layoff with a dominating performance.

He stopped Lucas Matthysse in seven rounds to capture the WBA's "regular" welterweight title.

Pacquiao scored three knockdowns and picked up his first knockout victory since November of 2009.

Following that win, Pacquiao called for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mayweather won a twelve round unanimous decision over Pacquiao in the most financially successful fight in boxing history.

Mayweather retired from boxing in August of 2017, after stopping UFC superstar Conor McGregor in the tenth round.

At 41-years-old and retired for nearly a year, and having only a single fight since 2015, the former pound-for-pound king has no intention of returning to the ring for a Pacquiao rematch.

However, he's willing to advise Pacquiao on his boxing future and what direction he should take.

"I can't knock Manny Pacquiao for what he wants to do, that's his prerogative," Mayweather said to "If he still wants to go out there and make money, be victorious that's his prerogative. You do whatever you want to do. I don't have nothing against Manny Pacquiao.

"Of course, he's supposed to call the Mayweather name. I'm probably going to be one of the biggest names of all time in this sport, if not the biggest name. When you call the Mayweather name out, I mean, you speaking dollars. I'm not really doing interviews but I've been asked the question probably seven times, with one saying, 'why are you scared to fight Pacquiao' - like beating him once wasn't good enough.

"It is was it is and Pacquiao is a future Hall of Famer, a hell of a champion and a hell of a guy. But the best man won and I was the best man. Actually, I'm [going to] get on the phone with Pacquiao after this call... see if we can put him in position. There's a lot of good competition out there that he could fight."

[QUOTE=TheBigLug;18990667]It would be a bit embarrassing for Pacquiao to have Floyd promoting or advising him, given all their history and him being a great in his own right. It'd be sort of like a guy fcuking another guys wife, and…

[QUOTE=sbbigmike;18991509]FLoyd has been a great great interview lately....... He's simply Floyd the boxing fan, before Floyd the promoter, and boxer, no agendas or double talk...... Definitely in his humble pbf mode[/QUOTE] He's likeable and classy right now. Same as way…

[QUOTE=Pinoy4ever;18993359]Let Pac fight Lomanchenko[/QUOTE] He's too little but he can fight Mikey Garcia at a catchweight of 144 lbs.

[QUOTE=abracada;18993210]Loma - Pac-Man defeats him due to being the catchweight king. Khan - Pac-Man defeats him due to khans suspect chin, khan can’t take a Pac-Man 8 punch combo. Crawford may beat Pac, but by then he is up to…
