Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Challenges Manny Pacquiao --

'STEP UP, PUNK'

1/10/2012 10:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Challenges Manny Pacquiao
Floyd Mayweather Jr. just issued the challenge the world has been waiting for -- demanding Manny Pacquiao fight him once and for all ... May 5th in Vegas.

As we reported, Floyd's jail sentence was postponed to June so he could fight at the MGM Grand on May 5th -- but so far, his opponent hasn't been determined.

Fight fans have been clamoring for Mayweather-Pacquiao for years -- and now Floyd himself is calling out Manny with the message, "Manny Pacquiao I'm calling you out let's fight May 5th and give the world what they want to see."

Floyd sounded off in the tough and hardcore forums of Twitter and Facebook -- and punctuated his challenge with, "Step up Punk."

Manny is in the Philippines ... and has yet to respond to the challenge.

considering its Floyd's team trying to get all these conditions added in previous attempts, its funny how NOW he wants it to happen. Floyd will become a bitch inprison, and at least wants a payday to buy his daddy some cigs to alleviate more abuse from being pimped.

It hasn't been Manny that was stalling on this. Until the fight actually happens I'll be suspicious of Floyd finding a way to back out.

Leave it to Mayweather to make a challenge, only to block it. Can't wait to hear "Mayweathers" conditions to fight Pacquiao this time. What a joke!

Don't worry, Pac Man's manager will undoubtedly come up with yet another excuse to prevent this fight from happening.

Bout time!!! I still don't think they'll fight because of the testing. But if they do and Floyd loses, he's gonna blame it on not having enough time to train and prepare.

This fight isn't happening because of that fat troll Bob Arum. Both fighters want it, Arum is just trying to squeeze more money out of Manny.

If he wants a fight...just arrange it. Calling someone a punk in my world can get you a long stay off your feet. My money is on Manny; he'll give you a couple swollen eyes to go with your new jumpsuit.
