Pacquiao says Mayweather using Ortiz as “prep work”


By the time [Manny] Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. go toe-to-toe they will be in their forties! Pacquiao stepped up and his trainer agreed that “Mayweather is preparing to fight me by fighting a southpaw”, according to ABS-CBN News. Check it out!

“Maybe he’s preparing for me because he chose to fight a southpaw,” Pacquiao told ABS-CBN News’ Ginger Conejero.

Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, felt the same way, admitting it was, “the first thing I thought,” upon hearing the news of a Mayweather-Ortiz fight.

As for any trash-talking words for Mayweather?

“I wish him luck,” Pacquiao said.
