Mayweather's Uncle Says Pacquiao-Horn Fight Just A Money Grab

Floyd 'Money' Mayweather sounds more like that to us

Boxing trainer Jeff Mayweather has more words to say against Senator Manny Pacquiao after blaming the Filipino boxing icon for the failed attempt to stage a rematch with his nephew.

According to Mayweather, Pacquiao’s potential match with Australian boxer Jeff Horn is simply a money grab move from the eight-division world champion, ABS-CBN News reports.

Mayweather believes that Horn—despite his 16-0-1 record in three years—is a complete mismatch for Pacquiao whose record overshadows his opponent’s at 59-6-2.

He also said Pacquiao is now at the point of his career where he is a gatekeeper—someone who is not top tier but is seen by young boxers as their ticket to get to the top.

“The guys who are not the top echelon, he will probably beat [them]. But the guys who are hot, like Errol Spence or Terence Crawford? He's not going to beat those guys,” he said.

For his part, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum said the Pacquiao-Horn fight would either be held in Australia or the Middle East, Philstar reports.

Arum said that the plans will soon be finalized although he conceded that Australia is the ideal place to make the bout happen as it is Horn’s country while also being a second home to a lot of migrant Filipinos.

If everything goes well between both camps, Pacquiao will be facing Horn early this year on April 23.
