Floyd Mayweather Takes A Brutal Swipe At Manny Pacquiao During Autograph Signing

Floyd Mayweather Takes A Brutal Swipe At Manny Pacquiao During Autograph Signing

Floyd Mayweather pulled no punches towards fierce rival Manny Pacquiao by branding him 'Victim 48' at an autograph signing.

The 42-year-old American clashed with Filipino sensation Pacquiao in a blockbuster boxing match in 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

And Mayweather walked away with the ultimate bragging rights after securing a unanimous decision victory and chalked up his 48th professional win.

The undefeated former boxer was in attendance at the Art of Music shop inside the MGM Grand last weekend.

According to TMZ, fans weren't allowed to have their phones out while they had the chance to meet Mayweather.

But when a fan asked the American star to sign his ticket from the 2015 fight, Mayweather scrapped the rules and told him to take his phone out.

Mayweather told the fan he was about to do "something special" and started trash-talking his rival.

"So, what I'm about to do right now is sign 'Victim 48,'" he said.

"So, what I'm gonna go for you... I gotta cross him out!"

Mayweather drew a massive black cross over Pacquiao's face and labelled him 'Victim 48' above his head.

And the likes of Terence Crawford, Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan have called out Mayweather ahead of his hotly-anticipated return.

Pacquiao, 40, squashed any hopes of setting up a blockbuster rematch with Mayweather by insisting he would not return to boxing.

"I've got calls to get back into the ring, but my health is my wealth," the 'Pacman' told Reuters last month.

"Boxing is a very, very brutal sport. In the last few years, a lot of fighters have died inside that squared circle.

"You have got to know when to hang it up. I had a great career.

"I'll still travel and do exhibitions. I make great money doing exhibitions; between $10 and $30million.

"I think I make more doing that than most fighters make fighting."

UFC president Dana White has since opened up about his collaboration with Mayweather for his 2020 return.
