In a typical (and quite interesting) interview with FightHype.com, Floyd Mayweather Jr says that he's only looking to fight one man: Manny Pacquiao.
"I don't want to fight nobody else but him. Nobody! I want him. I don't want to fight Cotto. Not Canelo. And I ain't looking to fight Marquez a second time. Nobody! I want him! I only want one person, Pacquiao. ... Why is he duckin' and dodgin' me? ... Like I said before, May 5th, sure, it could be Cotto, or it could be Canelo, but I don't want to fight them. I don't want to fight nobody but one person, Manny Pacquiao."
Mayweather also says he doesn't know who Robert Guerrero is (that's what Guerrero was responding to later in the day), and that he thinks Bob Arum is just full of hot air. That was nicer than he put it.
I was amused by this bit:
"If I'm not mistaken, back when Cotto fought Pacquiao, he fought him at a catchweight. You know me, if I was to fight Cotto, I'm not fighting him at no catchweight, but I don't want to fight him."
Oh, also, we're supposed to all start calling him Floyd Joy Mayweather instead of Floyd Mayweather Jr.
I won't be doing that.
