Floyd Mayweather Jr. Calls Out Manny Pacquiao, “I Want To Go Out With A Bang” [VIDEO]

Potentially the greatest fight in modern-boxing history, the long-awaited match that has been brewing for years between boxing kingpin Floyd Mayweather Jr. and the current WBO Welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao may finally come to fruition mid-next year. In an interview with Showtime Sports on Friday night in San Antonio, Mayweather called out the Filipino professional boxer for a fight on May 2, 2015.

Despite Pacquiao’s pay-per-view numbers dropping, Mayweather said he “absolutely” wants to fight him in May:

Absolutely, I would love to fight Manny Pacquiao. We tried to make the fight happen years ago. We had problems with random blood and urine testing. Like I said, I just want to be on an even playing field. Now he’s in a very, very tight situation — he lost to [Juan Manuel] Marquez, he’s lost to [Timothy] Bradley. Pay-per-view numbers are down… extremely low, so he’s desperate.

However, Mayweather won’t be offering Pacquiao the same $40 million deal, which he and promoter Bob Arum turned down in 2010:

I offered you $40 million, then you didn’t want to make the fight happen, you lost twice, now you coming back begging for the same money. That’s not gonna happen.
