GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines – World eight-division boxing champ and Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao refused to stoop to Floyd Mayweather’s twitter swipe, saying Christmas season is a time to ponder God’s profound love for humanity.

“I’m thanking Floyd Mayweather that he has not forgotten me. I’m glad that he is still thinking of me,” Pacquiao told the Inquirer.

Pacquiao claimed he was busy doing some charity works like visiting a sick friend and giving gifts to the needy, among others.

“Christmas reminds us of God’s greatest love for us. He teaches us to love even our enemies. So, I won’t say anything that would hurt anybody,” Pacquiao said.


On Monday, Floyd Mayweather Jr.  posted a collage of photos aimed at deriding the Filipino ring icon. It spoke about how Mayweather feels regarding the much-awaited showdown between him and Pacquiao.

Boxing fans around the world drool to see the Pacquiao-Mayweather megabout.
In his website (, Pacquiao put up a wholesome Christmas card with a greeting “Wishing you a blessed holiday season.”

In the same site, Pacquiao also posted a message, “Manny Pacquiao loves every one of you and wishes you a very Merry Christmas! Remember this is the season to celebrate the birth of Jesus and remember His love for us. Please share that same love with everyone around you and God Bless.”
