Manny Pacquiao still wants Mayweather: 'I'm not a has-been'

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Floyd Mayweather recently dismissed questions about Manny Pacquiao by calling him a "has-been." Pacquiao says that's not the case, and he still wants to face Mayweather.

Manny Pacquiao will look to win his first fight in two years when he faces Brandon Rios on November 23 in Macau, but while many think Mayweather-Pacquiao is a totally dead issue, Manny is hoping that's not the case. Floyd Mayweather recently dismissed Pacquiao as a "has-been" during his press tour for his September 14 fight against Canelo Alvarez, but Pacquiao says he still wants Floyd.

"To us, he sounds cocky. He's all talk. Why not stop the talk and say ‘let's fight' instead?," Pacquiao said to ABS-CBN News. "I'm not a has been, I can still win fights. I lost because I took a hit. I wasn't beaten up... it was just a lucky punch, which is part of the game."

Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KO) is likely never going to get a chance to fight Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO), even if Floyd actually wanted the fight more than anything. The political beefs and rivalries make Mayweather-Pacquiao as impossible now as it has ever been, maybe even more so now that the TV networks have also taken clear sides.

In summary, this is a thing that Manny Pacquiao said.
