LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Although Floyd Mayweather, Jr. faces Puerto Rican star Miguel Cotto in a pay-per-view blockbuster on Saturday, May 5, he cannot avoid questions about a fighter he has never faced despite endless speculation, trash talk, and (ultimately failed) negotiations: Manny Pacquiao.
Rather than deflect questions about Pacquiao to focus on Cotto, the outspoken Mayweather continues to give reporters a reason to ask about the other top welterweight in the world.
In his latest, most outrageous tirade on the subject, Mayweather implied that Pacquiao might in fact be a cybernetic organism like the one portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the "Terminator" film franchise.
“All we gotta do is both prove we’re real men, not part human, part machine weapons of destruction, and we’ll have the biggest fight in the history of the sport,” said Mayweather at a press conference at the MGM Grand.
“Floyd Mayweather is 100 percent man. I’m all flesh, blood, sweat, tears, hard work, and dedication," he said. "I don’t have no electric servomechanisms powering my endoskeleton and making me an unstoppable warrior. I’ll prove that any time, any day. If Poochie-ao [Mayweather’s derisive nickname for Pacquiao] is willing to do the same, I’m willing to fight him.”
When asked why he was accusing the Filipino congressman and eight-division titlist of being a cyborg, Mayweather was quick to insist that he was not making any outright accusations.
“Floyd Mayweather is not accusing nobody of nothing," he said. "Floyd Mayweather is not saying that Manny Pacquiao was designed by Skynet and sent from the future to exterminate human resistance to the rise of the robots. I’m just saying that Floyd Mayweather will take the test and prove he ain’t no cyborg, and anybody Floyd Mayweather fights either does the same or don’t make the big boy money.”
Cotto has agreed to take the test, laughing off the idea that he is a Terminator.
“I have no liquid metal mimetic poly alloy to recover from damage, no superconducting artificial neural network CPU with the ability to learn,” Cotto said through a tongue-tied translator. “If he needs me to take a test to prove [it], I will take his stupid test.”
Later in the press conference, Mayweather also mentioned that he is in the market for kryptonite, as he has requested that his future opponents also take a Superman test.
“I’m just trying to clean up the sport of boxing,” Mayweather said. “Floyd Mayweather makes fights, not excuses.”

Floyd: Pacquiao is a member off the Avengers! His buddy Buboy is on roids, look how big is his belly! My bodyguards? They're all natural! They don't even know how to spell STEROIDS!
Reporters: (clap) (clap) (clap)
Floyd wants to clean the sports of boxing with the help of his dad floyd sr who was a drug smuggler, his uncle roger who likes choking a woman and 50CUNT who was a self-confessed drug dealer and drug user. these are the people who wants to clean the sports of boxing and want the people of america or american people to support him. floyd is a JOKE!
The fear of man (in this case Manny,) and not the righteous fear of God, always drives a person nuts.
"Fish is caught by its mouth." There we have it; Floyd said it already: Manny Pacquiao, for him, is an "UNSTOPPABLE WARRIOR." Well nobody would try to face an unstoppable being right? This is how scared he is, unfortunately, and we might never see this fight, unless the Jesuits "orders" him to, or die in prison....
Whoa at all the freakshows in the comment section here. I feel like I'm reading a comments section on a Justin Bieber video. Weird.
If Floyd really wants to fight Pacquiao, It could already happened long time ago.In Ortiz fight,he said Pacquiao,yes your next,now his using Pacquiao again to attract people.He's calling on Pacquiao again,I hope he's sincere and fight Pacquiao for real!
“I’m just trying to clean up the sport of boxing,” Mayweather said. “Floyd Mayweather makes fights, not excuses.” ahummmmm what an alibi ....gosh america and the whole world knows who is this guy is ....clean boxing and mind you de lahoya also represent america in olympics but he is coke .....

Run Floyd........ run! These American writers/bloggers must be having a hardtime defending their idol and countryman Floyd Mayweather Jr. This idiot is doing everything in his crazy mind to mislead boxing fans into believing that Manny Pacquaio is avoiding him. Ha.ha.ha.ha....who are you fooling Floyd? Hard core boxing fans knew from a long time that you are very, very afraid to fight Manny Pacquaio. Even trembling and shaking at times hearing the name Manny Pacquaio . Also extremely zealous of Manny Pacquaio's acheivement in his own country. He cannot face the truth that Forbes magazine voted Pacquaio as no. 4 in the list of the most popular athlete in the US of A for 2012. Manny Pacquaio is not even an American citizen. The American people believe so! AMERICA - Leader of the FREE world, Defender of Democracy and ultimately Land of the BRAVE........ but Floyd Mayweather does not fit the later. Ha.ha.ha.ha. Lol
...What else will be his alibi to avoid fighting with Pacman?...that Pacman is a son of GOD?
Oh common Mayweather, you have to be true to yourself you,have to admit that you are afraid to Manny Pacquiao...no more no less!!!!
The Pacman has already agreed with all the testing that this moron is asking. He making noise about the Pacman to up the earnings of his fight with Cotto. He is riding on the Pacman's popularity. He cannot use the name of Cotto, Margarito or any other boxer to help sell his fight. He is afraid to fight the Pacman because Pacman is a threat to his health and zero record! Ha ha ha ha!
FLOYD IS BATTERD HIS WIFE! & ITS A PROVEN! HE IS GOING TO JAIL IN JUNE!

ANYTHING FLOYD SAYS IS BACK TO HIS FACE! ITS A REALITY THAT HIS FATHER IS A EX-CONVICT IN DRUG RELATED!
FLOYD IS ARROGANT! WHY ACCUSING SOMEONE WITHOUT LOOKING IN THE MIRROR!
LOOK AT HIS FATHER, A DRUG ADDICT AND A DRUG DEALER HISTORY!
Floyd is simply saying am afraid of Pacquiao with another innovative alibi or excuse, if you will. And you people will say no he is not ducking. Floyd is indeed able to come up with another excuse way ahead of a possible question from Larry Merchant after the fight. Mr. Merchant please don't ask him about Pacquiao.
It pains me that floyd is disrespecting you. You are not his father.
floyd keeps making demands... now he wish to have some electronic suit be fitted to his ass and if pac accepts the same device to his ass the fight will happen... just look at that, damn coward. keeps filling the table with his stupid demands.
