Floyd Mayweather reveals phone call with Pacquiao whilst on a recent international trip outside of the United States.
Floyd Mayweather has been enjoying life since retirement – and rightly so.
There’s perhaps fewer ways on this Earth for someone to earn that right to do so.
Through professional fighting that is.
Recently he posted various pictures of himself in exotic locations around the world including Dubai, the Philippines and other locations.
Speaking to Fight Hype he revealed that when in the Philippines he got an unexpected phone call one day from his old rival, Manny Pacquiao:
“Well he called me actually. I spoke to him. I said hello and wished him nothing but the best in his upcoming fight. He asked me if I get a chance would I come over and watch him.”
Pacquiao takes on Lucas Matthysse of Argentina in his next bout that will take place on July 15th at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur.
Maywether went on to give his prediction on what he thinks will happen in the fight, saying:
“If Matthysse can’t move and box he’s going to get chopped up (by Pacquiao).”
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao famously fought back in 2015 in a fight that to this day holds the record for most American pay per view sales of a combat sports event.
It is widely thought that Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor last year holds the record for global sales of a pay per view combat sports event (including the rest of the world and the United States put together).
