Responding to comments made by “Pretty Boy” that the Filipino icon is an irrelevant “has-been,” Michael Koncz told WBN that Floyd Mayweather should “jump to fight Manny (Pacquiao).”
The 34-year-old Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) was most recently knocked onto Queer Street by Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KOs) in December.
Meanwhile, in an utterly brilliant showing, the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) unanimously outclassed Robert Guerrero onMay 4 and pocketed $32 million for the mismatch.
A five-division, eight-belt capturer who was named The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007, Mayweather will scrap Saul Alvarez on September 14 in “Sin City.”
“If Floyd truly believes his statements are true, then one would think he’d jump to fight Manny,” said Koncz, one of Pacquiao’s advisors. “Nonetheless, let the world wait and watch on November 24. Let the people judge for themselves if, as Floyd says, ‘Manny is a has-been and his career is over.’”
As the reigning pound-for-pound king, Mayweather is a defensive virtuoso defying Father Time with an incredible work ethic.
In stark contrast to “Pretty Boy,” Pacquiao is a faded pugilistic legend who a neurologist claimed is exhibiting initial signs of Parkinson’s disease.
Battling in front of thousands of passionate Asian supporters, Pacquiao should manage to finish the inferior 26-year-old Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs) within 11 rounds this autumn.
However, in comparison to the timeless Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao is a “has-been and his career is over.”
