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.

Unfortunately this fight will never take place Gayweather is
a media ho and scared to get in the ring with Manny.
His record of beaing undefeated is all he has and if he gets beat he might just go and kill himself he is a thinskinned
sensitive insecure little girl.

Hey, Mayweather, you DB! Who you calling a punk, punk?! I hope Manny destroys you and that the final punch, that knocks you out, is thrown on behalf of your children's mother. NEWSFLASH: You’re not going to be hitting a girl like you’re used to!!! (Every cent Mayweather makes from this fight should be - mandated by the court - donated to a Domestic Violence Organization.)

Pac says he wants the fight but rather listen to his daddy Bob Arum. Arum doesn't wanna lose his cash cow just yet. Pac's a sissy if this fight doesn't happen in May!

Floyd does not want to fight Manny that is clear in his now way to a 50-50 split. He knows full well that Manny and team will not setle for less. Why should they? There is no one else for Floyd to fight and make that kind of money. From now on I'm going to refer to Floyd as Floyd "the leanard" Mayweather.
