Who did Floyd Mayweather criticise?

Floyd Mayweather has criticised longtime foe, Manny Pacquiao. 

The two were adversaries throughout their careers and fought in 2015. Mayweather defeated Pacquiao that night, and talk of a rematch or exhibition bout has not disappeared since that May 2015 contest. 

Pacquiao recently called Mayweather out at a show in Japan.

In a wide-ranging interview on the Pivot Podcast, Mayweather commented on a potential Pacquiao exhibition. Mayweather said, "When Manny Pacquiao spoke about that fight, he shouldn't have. There's a time and a place for everything.

"I'm not going to say he's right or wrong. Just by him saying my name, I got a cheque for $4 million. He said my name when he wasn't supposed to."

Mayweather also criticised Pacquiao for calling him out when they were in their respective primes. "Remember, he (Pacquiao) told everyone that he would dethrone me. Did it happen? Absolutely not. Was he easy? Absolutely."

Mayweather did hint that he would be open to more exhibition bouts. And this one would undoubtedly draw the boxing world's eyes.
