Manny Pacquiao Calls Out Floyd Mayweather With Bizarre Social Media Video
Manny Pacquiao has called out Floyd Mayweather in a bizarre video that sees the Filipino boxer hold pads for a Chinese billionaire.
A blockbuster rematch between them continues to be mooted and Pacquiao laid down another challenge on social media.
The video below features 'Pac-Man' holding pads for 55-year-old Jack Ma, before addressing the camera where he challenges Mayweather to a "real fight" and puts forward his billionaire friend if the retired American is looking for an opponent for an exhibition bout.
"Yeah I am ready. Any place, any time. Manny's team is ready," Ma said in the video.
Pacquiao lost on points to Mayweather in an extremely lucrative bout billed as the 'Fight of the Century' back in May 2015, and a second meeting has been heavily reported ever since their Las Vegas showdown.

Fans weren't sure what to make of it, but Pacquiao has just responded... :eyes: https://t.co/rpdh2tUoqW
Last month, Pacquiao claimed he was in talks with Mayweather over a mega-money rematch.
"My people are talking to his people, they're talking to each other," he said.
"We don't know what the developments are, because I don't have an update yet."
The multi-weight world champion also remains interested in facing Amir Khan should they fail to agree terms with Mayweather.
"I'm planning for next year, trying to make it for next year with a possible opponent," he added.
"Especially Amir Khan wants to fight me. We will talk again. It would be a good fight.
"We can discuss that, a fight between us. I have a commitment for my next fight - one fight only. But after that we can talk. No problem."
Pacquiao last fought against Keith Thurman back in July where he became the oldest welterweight champion in history after beating the American on points.
