Shouldn’t Manny Pacquiao Stop Talking About Floyd Mayweather Now?

Submitted by on May 19, 2015 – 10:28 amNo Comment

A month ago, Manny Pacquiao talked about Floyd Mayweather during every single interview that he did. And it didn’t seem all that strange because, at the time, he was actively promoting his May 2 fight against Mayweather. So we listened intently as Pacquiao took shot after shot after shot at Mayweather. He questioned his skills in the ring, said that he was going to beat him, and openly taunted Mayweather in a way that few other people have ever done.

Unfortunately, all that talking didn’t help him once he actually fought Mayweather. The so-called “Fight of the Century” wasn’t all that pretty. But Mayweather got the best of Pacquiao and, in doing so, he should have shut Pacquiao up for good. But for whatever reason, Pacquiao hasn’t stopped talking about Mayweather since the fight ended. He’s continued to take shots at him and, most recently, he even referred to Mayweather as a coward. After Mayweather referred to Pacquiao as a coward during an interview on Shade 45, Pacquiao responded by criticizing Mayweather for running around in the ring during their match.

“Let’s not fan the fire that he’s saying I’m a coward,” Pacquiao said. “The one who ran is a coward.”

A month ago, a statement like that would have been perfectly OK. Pacquiao would have had all the reasons in the world to go on the offensive against Mayweather. But at this point, the back-and-forth between the two fighters is getting old. And it’s getting especially old when it comes to Pacquiao talking trash. He lost to Mayweather, so the only thing he’s doing by taking shots at him is making himself look foolish. It’s making us not want to see him fight Mayweather again and, somehow, it’s making Mayweather look like the good guy in their war of words. So Pacquiao should probably just give it a rest for awhile, because his incessant trash talking isn’t doing him any good.
