Pac-Man takes dig at rival over string of Instagram posts…
Mayweather poses with cars and jet: (Photo) Floyd shows off collection.
Khan poses in cringeworthy photo with message for Mayweather: (Photo) Briton wants to beat rival in 2015.
Arum says there is movement in Mayweather-Pacquiao talks: Promoter says deal is still long way off.
While Floyd Mayweather continues to post images of his hilariously extravagant lifestyle, long-time rival Manny Pacquiao isn’t impressed.
Mayweather posted a new image on Monday showing off his fleet of sports cars and his private jet, and while it was just the latest in a string of amusing snaps, Pacquiao’s response was just as good.
While the unbeaten American star has called out his rival to fight him on May 2, Pacquiao has accepted his challenge but as ever issues over purses and such have prevented any real progress being made in announcing the bout.
Promoter Bob Arum revealed earlier this week that there had been “movement” in talks, but he conceded that it was still a long way off from being confirmed as it is “always about money”.
Nevertheless, Pacquiao has ramped up his bid to wind up Mayweather through social media and he posed for a photo on Monday showing him patiently waiting in front of a modest fireplace for his welterweight rival to sign the contract to fight him.
Both parties insist that it is the other which is holding up negotiations, but boxing fans are only interested in the pair meeting in the ring in 2015 and with a bit of luck it may well become a reality later this year.
