In a recent interview with Fight Hype, Roger Mayweather holds nothing back when discussing Manny Pacquiao, his trainer Freddie Roach and their upcoming bout with Antonio Margarito.
On the topic of the Floyd Mayweather-Pacquiao fight not happening, he had this to say:
“He [Manny Pacquiao] don’t want to take that [expletive] drug test,” Mayweather said. “That’s the only reason Floyd and Pacquiao ain’t fought, because they [Pacquiao’s camp] don’t want to take the test. Anytime a [expletive] gettin’ $100 million and he don’t want to take the test, then what does that tell you? That’s simple arithmetic... you gotta take a [urine] test on call when you are getting a regular job, and when you are fighting, you are risking your life, so you gotta take one then,” Mayweather said.
He didn’t stop there, though. Mayweather also made it a note to dismiss the notion that Pacquiao deserved all the credit he gets for being a dominant fighter:
“Let me tell you something, Pacquiao is fighting [expletives] at catch weights. Floyd is fighting [expletives] at their regular weight. Every fight [Pacquiao’s] fought, he’s made [his opponents] come down. Margarito probably weights 170 pounds now. By the time that [expletive] fight, he gonna be about 147 and he’s gonna be dead making that weight. Freddie Roach trained Oscar to fight my nephew and saw how much trouble he had making 154 for that fight, so he knew if Pacquiao could get him [Margarito] to agree to a fight at 147 he’d be a dead man.”
While the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout doesn’t look like it’s any closer to getting made, the hype surrounding it doesn’t look to be fizzling out.
