'Maybe he's not ready for me yet' - Pacquiao on Mayweather Exclusive Interview

8-Division World Champion Manny Pacquiao is radiating with positive energy these days, despite controversies that surround him. Recently, in an interview with popular and prolific sports broadcaster Snow Badua of NBN 4's Teledyaryo Sports exclusively shared to this scribe, the self-professed new bible-flipping Pacquiao shared his thoughts on nemesis Floyd Mayweather, Jr., who has an upcoming fight on May 5th against former conquered opponent Miguel Cotto.

"Hinde pa si siguro siya handa (May he's not ready for me yet)," Pacquiao said when asked about why talks of a Mayweather fight continues to disappoint. Whether the fight will happen this year, Pacquiao's response left little hope. "Hinde ko alam, kasi hinde pa natin sigurado (I don't know, because we are not sure yet)," Pacquiao said, and encouraged fans to watch Mayweather's upcoming fight. "Panoorin niyo rin yung laban niya, yung upcoming fight niya with Cotto (You should also watch his upcoming fight with Cotto)."

On Timothy Bradley

Pacquiao also told Snow Badua that he will be implementing similar tactics he used against Oscar Dela Hoya.

Wary of Bradley's head-first charge, Pacquiao will be relying on his side-to-side movement to avoid headbutts. "Magandang laban ito. Magaling din at undefeated si Bradley... malakas (This is a good fight. Bradley is very good and undefeated.. he's strong)," Pacquiao described his June 9 opponent.

Asked if he is concerned that Bradley might end up running away and avoid going toe-to-toe with him, Pacquiao cracked that any attempts to run away will be futile. "Wala siyang tatakbuhan (He will have nowhere to run)," joked Pacquiao.
