It appears that Floyd has heard Amir Khan’s rumblings about the megafight with Pacquiao and took a moment respond to the British boxer.
So you all may be aware that Amir Khan came out and pooh-poohed the megafight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, stating that Floyd probably took the fight with Manny because it’s an ‘easier fight’ for him. Clearly this sounds like a lot of our sour grapes coming from the British boxing star who just lost out on his two biggest possible paydays (and not for the first time).
Floyd Mayweather apparently caught wind of Amir’s comments and fired back with his own thoughts to Independent’s Sport Matrix.
“I am touched Amir is concerned. I can get him a ticket to see what the biggest fight in the history of boxing looks like,” said Mayweather.
A fairly tempered response, but I’ll admit that I expected something a little more harsh coming from ‘Bad Boy’ Floyd. Maybe he has matured some. If Amir happens to actually wind up at the MGM Grand on May 2nd, I truly hope (for his sake) that he’s not caught on camera just pouting the whole time. Buck up, Amir. You could always turn your attention to Kell Brook…
