The neverending boxing feud continues.

On May 2, 2015 the sports world finally got to see one of the more anticipated match ups in history when Floyd Mayweather faced off against Manny Pacquiao in what was dubbed the “Fight of the Century.”

The battle was a large disappointment with the undefeated Mayweather mostly dominating the fight.

40-year-old Pacquiao recently handed Keith Thurman his first loss this weekend to become the WBA Super Welterweight champion opening the door for a rematch. Making the fire even hotter is that the Philippines senator had signed with Al Haymon who also advises Mayweather.

Days later the two are now going back and forth on social media against each other.

Mayweather began with an Instagram post asking why he should fight Pacquiao again.

“I find it real ironic how every time Pacquiao’s name is brought up in the media, my name is always attached to it,” he said. “This man’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name and it’s about time you all stop using my brand for clout chasing and clickbait and let that man’s name hold weight of its own. For years, all you heard was that ‘Floyd is afraid of Manny Pacquiao.’ But what’s funny is, when we finally fought, I won so easily that everyone had to eat their words!”

“All of the so called boxing experts, critics and jealous American “fan base” either went mute and ran for cover or made every excuse in the world as to why I should give Manny Pacquiao a rematch. My take on all this bullshit is that y’all are just upset that I broke Rocky Marciano’s record and hate the fact that a Black, high school dropout outsmarted you all by beating all odds and retiring undefeated while maintaining all my faculties simply by making smart choices and even smarter investments. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh!”

“You come to my fight and then use my name in a post but I’m the one that is trying to stay relevant? if you want to be relevant again,” he said before writing the hashtag #MayPac2

The retired Mayweather then responded by speaking about the disparity of money made in the historic matchup.

“Let’s stick to the facts,” he began. “Bob Arum is no longer your promoter, so when it comes to @mayweatherpromotions & PBC events I’m the HNIC! Bottom line, I make more money than you; I beat you, then I signed you! I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real BOSS would do. You made $10Million for 12 rounds, when I just made $9M in under 3 minutes playing around in an exhibition with a pizza delivery guy! I beat you mentally, physically and financially!”

Then he went for the kill shot.

“Remember, you fight cause you have to, I fight when I want to!”
