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.

Floyd will kick his A and that is why manny's promotor has ducked him this long. How can this ugly bastard even be considered for fighter of the century, pound for pound best, or even a potential hall of famer when he has been cherry picking fights at catch weights? And this ugly little dude has been ducking PBF all this time. Manny is a fake and an overhyped joke!

Probably won't happen, since Mayweather is a little bitch. Manny agreed to all his terms, yet he didn't want to fight him in Texas. Why?

Because HE is the one using banned substances. Google "Mayweather + Xylocaine" and you'll see what's ups.

Mayweather is just another dumb n*gga with a loud ass mouth. Who thinks he can talk **** to anyone, however he wants.

And while it's perfectly in his right to do so, please, let him back it up by fighting fair and square.

For real Mayweather you are not going to be hitting a girl like you are use to. I hope this fight is a done deal so Pacquiao can beat you like the bitch that you are. Then you can go to jail and be some inmate's bitch.

How strange is it that the judge gave him til June 1 to turn his ass in for jail time for a fight that suppidly already set on 5/5/12. I guess it wasn't as set as she was led to believe. Can we all say....fooled ya judge!!!

this fight is not happening in May, but maybe in November. MgM is not big enough to hold the crowd that wants to watch this fight.
