Floyd Mayweather has issued a challenge to long-time rival Manny Pacquaio, asking for a fight on May 2nd.

Mayweather, speaking in an interview with Showtime, is seemingly responding to the calls Pacquiao made for a bout between the two before his November 22nd win over Chris Algieri.

Here’s Mayweather in the interview, via Dan Rafael:

“I would love to fight Manny Pacquiao. We tried to make the fight happen years ago; we had problems with random blood and urine testing,” Mayweather said. “I just want to be on an even playing field. Now he’s in a very, very tight situation. He’s lost to [Juan Manuel] Marquez [in 2012], he’s lost to [Timothy] Bradley [by controversial decision in 2012 but avenged it in April]. Pay-per-view numbers are extremely low. He’s desperate. I wanted that fight a long time ago. I’m just waiting on them.”

Bob Arum, Pacquaio’s promoter, is already making a stink about the May 2nd date, saying the Cinco de Mayo weekend should be reserved for a Mexican boxer. There will surely be many more rounds of dick-swinging and pissing before the sides can agree on a fight, one that we’ll only believe once the two are standing in a ring and the bell is rung.

Mayweather and Pacquiao, of course, have been going back and forth on a fight for years. In late 2009, when the drug testing issue came up, this would have actually been interesting. Since then, we’ve seen Pacquaio get dropped like a bag of rocks, and remembered why we want absolutely no part of watching Mayweather box.
