Floyd Mayweather was taunted by two of his former opponents after destroying Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition on New Year’s Eve.
Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao – both of whom suffered losses to the now retired American – took to social media to post their thoughts on the fight, with neither opting to be complimentary.
Prior to the bout, Mayweather declared that he would be making $9million for the three, three-minute round affair.
McGregor stated on Instagram: “That $9million won’t keep you on top of my list for long, kid.”
The comment is in reference to the Forbes ‘Highest Paid Athlete’ rich list which the 50-0 boxing great famously topped throughout the latter years of his career – a title the Irishman is now looking to claim for himself.
Pacquiao meanwhile posted on Twitter: “Here is an early New Year’s resolution – To continue to only fight experienced opponents who are my size or bigger.”
While 41-year-old Floyd Mayweather is now retired from professional boxing and only engaging in exhibitions, 40-year-old Manny Pacquiao continues to fight on.
The Filipino’s next outing sees him face Adrien Broner.
He is hoping to overcome this loud-mouthed, younger American and then lure another loud-mouthed, older American out of retirement for a rematch.
