Floyd Mayweather Jr. keeps uttering the words “Manny Pacquiao” wherever he goes. Whether it is good or bad, one thing’s for sure Floyd Mayweather is a fan of the Pacman.
Today during the kick off for his May 5th fight against Miguel Cotto, Floyd Mayweather named dropped Pacquiao again this time tying Pacquiao’s name in with Antonio Margarito as a cheater. Floyd said, “Floyd Mayweather is not a cheater like Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacquiao,” hinting that Miguel Cotto’s only two losses were not legitimate. Manny Pacquiao has passed every commission test and has never been linked to any steroid dealers, a man is innocent until proven guilty and an accusation is worthless without proof or evidence.
Floyd has been quoted years ago that he was a fan of Manny Pacquiao, although, his tune has changed and he doesn’t have anything positive to say about the Pacman, he does clearly have an obsession with him and envies the love and admiration the Pacman receives from the media and fans.
Mayweather’s fans don’t think for themselves and follow the leader when it comes to Mayweather. Whoever Mayweather hates they hate too, whatever Mayweather says they say it too. Floyd disses Jeremy Lin, they diss Jeremy Lin, Floyd accuses Pacquiao of steroids they repeat his, “Take the Test” phrase, Floyd cries racism and discrimination, they cry racism and discrimination, the list goes on, if Floyd said it must be true.
One thing is for sure, Manny Pacquiao never drops Floyd Mayweather’s name at the podium unless he is asked about him. Pacquiao doesn’t think about Floyd Mayweather because Manny has more important things to worry about, but for Floyd and his fans, Manny Pacquiao is always on their mind, they never stop hating on the man.
