Pacquiao trolls Mayweather after getting visit from Logan Paul
MANILA, Philippines — Manny Pacquiao has been throwing haymakers at Floyd Mayweather Jr. lately—albeit on social media.
Pacquiao is in the heat of his training camp in Los Angeles for his welterweight title showdown with Errol Spence Jr. but he still found time to troll his longtime rival.
“Honored to have @LoganPaul come by @WildCardBoxing1 today. After watching me work out he said he was glad he fought Mayweather instead of me,” Pacquiao posted on social media Tuesday.
“It was a pleasure champ,” Logan Paul, an internet personality with over 23 million subscribers on YouTube, said in a reply to Pacquiao on Twitter.

Paul fought Mayweather in an eight-round exhibition that went the distance last June in Miami.
In a press conference on Monday, Pacquiao insisted that Spence is a better fighter than Mayweather, who retired in 2017 with a 50-0 record.
Pacquiao, who lost to Mayweather on points in 2015, had also said recently that his clash with Spence is “perhaps the most difficult of my career.”
The 42-year-old Pacquiao 62-7-2, 39 KOs) is the underdog against the undefeated Spence (27-0, 21 KOs), who will defend his WBC and IBF titles on Aug. 21 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
