Mayweather mentioned during the interview that Manny Pacquiao is in a very tight situation; he lost to Juan Manuel Marquez, and Timothy Bradley and the latter’s fight has a very low pay-per-view earnings. Mayweather added that Pacquiao is now desperate because of these happenings.
Floyd told that it is the camp of Manny Pacquiao and Top Rank Promoter Bob Arum that is ducking the former for years. He exclaimed that Pacquiao’s camp didn’t want to take random blood and urine testing, and also didn’t want to accept the 40Million dollars guaranteed fight earnings (I supposed).

In the past, the camps of Mayweather, and Pacquiao reportedly have some failed fight negotiations.

The second negotiation happened on 2010 up to 2012 where Mayweather reportedly phoned Pacquiao (while the latter is in the Philippines) offering him $40Million flat for the fight. However, Pacquiao didn’t agree with it.
