Speaking with David Mayo of The Grand Rapids Press, Floyd Mayweather Jr put on his hometown paper mask and offered the following quote:

"You've got to ask yourself this. I don't have anything against Manny Pacquiao. But is it Manny Pacquiao or Bob Arum?" Mayweather said. "It is what it is. I'm not here to say nothing negative about Bob Arum. I'm not here to say nothing negative about Manny Pacquiao. He do what he do, I do what I do. All I ask, as a gentleman, let us both take the test and let's fight.  It's obvious (Pacquiao) don't want to do it."

So it's "obvious" that Pacquiao doesn't want the fight, but he's not sure whether it's Pacquiao or Arum? Alright then. He has nothing negative to say about Manny Pacquiao, but Manny Pacquiao "obviously" doesn't want to fight. That's kind of negative, I'd suggest.

Oh well. Mayweather is different depending on who's interviewing him. When he talks to the GR Press, he's different than he is when talking to the LA Times. Floyd's got a lot of slightly different characters he plays depending on the situation.
