Pacquiao to Mayweather - 'Our line is open 24 hours, seven days a week'
Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao has once again put the ball in undefeated American Floyd Mayweather’s court, telling ESPN’s Keith Olbermann in a televised interview, “I want that fight but it’s up to him [Mayweather].”
Pacquiao added that he’s always willing to work towards making the fight happening, saying, “What I can say now is that our line is open 24 hours, seven days a week. If he will call and say ‘yes’ then the fight [will happen].”
The two boxers have long gone back-and-forth, with Mayweather building up a list of demands from Pacquiao, the latest being that the latter leave Top Rank Promotions in order to have the fight done.
