Floyd Mayweather Jr. Calls Out Manny Pacquiao “You’re Next!” [Video]


Floyd Mayweather Jr. wore his promoter’s hat at the recent press conference in Los Angeles for his upcoming fight with Victor Ortiz.

No doubt Floyd is taking his match with Ortiz seriously, but he did look into the future a bit when he said: “We only want to fight the biggest and the best out there — and Manny Pacquiao, yes you’re next.”

Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach speculated three weeks ago that Floyd could be fighting the left handed Ortiz as a tune up fight for Paquiao, who is also a southpaw.

Of course, that’s the first thing that came to my mind,” Roach told the Associated Press. “Some left-handers have given him trouble. Judah gave him trouble but couldn’t maintain the pace. Guys like Victor Ortiz, Manny Pacquiao, they can maintain that pace. And I do think the southpaw stance gives him trouble.

If Pacquiao gets past his November 12 bout with Juan Manuel Marquez, and Floyd Beats Ortiz on September 17, that should set up one of the biggest fights in boxing history.
