Both fighters kept their public comments civil and mostly respectful this week, but Pacquiao laughed when told that the defense-minded Mayweather had called him “a very reckless fighter.”

Pacquiao says people love that aggression because it makes for exciting fights.

He also says he hopes Mayweather will abandon some of his usual caution, both because the fans would love it and because it would play into Pacquiao’s plans perfectly.
