Manny Pacquiao says Floyd Mayweather will never fight him

Fans will never see Manny Pacquiao battle Floyd Mayweather.

“Waiting four years already,” Manny Pacquiao told Boxing News on Monday he doesn’t expect to ever throw fists with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Finances and drug testing protocols have long been roadblocks to cementing an extremely lucrative bout between the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) and Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs).

“I’ve stopped thinking about him because I don’t think he will fight me. I’ve been waiting four years already,” said Pacquiao, 34, who Mayweather called an irrelevant “has-been.”

Pacquiao was most recently knocked onto Queer Street by Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KOs) in December.

An eight-division titlist, the “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s will face Brandon Rios on November 24 at the CotaiArena in Macau, China.

Meanwhile, in an utterly brilliant showing, Mayweather unanimously outclassed Robert Guerrero on May 4 and pocketed $32 million for the mismatch.

A five-division, eight-belt capturer who was named The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007, Mayweather is slated to scrap Saul Alvarez on September 14 in “Sin City.”

As the reigning pound-for-pound king, Mayweather is a defensive virtuoso defying Father Time with an incredible work ethic.

In stark contrast to “Pretty Boy,” Pacquiao is a faded pugilistic legend who a neurologist claimed is exhibiting initial signs of Parkinson’s disease.

Battling in front of thousands of passionate Asian supporters, Pacquiao should manage to finish the inferior Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs) within 11 rounds this autumn.

However, although not an absolute “has been,” Manny Pacquiao is no longer capable of competing with the timeless Floyd Mayweather.
