或許是無法繼續忍受自身持續受到外界消費，今次 Mayweather 便在個人 Instagram 一連發表兩則貼文砲轟，當中除了提到他認為自己的名字總是附屬在 Pacquiao 的報導當中相當諷刺之外，更指出當初所有人都認為他畏懼 Pacquiao 而不出戰，但在他拿下勝利後卻又默不作聲，Mayweather 認為這些人不過是看不慣一個高中輟學的黑人打破 Rocky Marciano 的紀錄（生涯 49 勝 0 敗 0 平）並取得這些耀眼成就。
在第 2 篇貼文則是徹底反擊他避戰的說法，他指出自己在精神、金錢和擂台上皆擊敗了 Pacquiao，其創立的拳擊促銷公司 Mayweather Promotions 更是簽下了 Pacquiao，此外還舉了早先 Pacquiao 與 Keith Thurman 血戰 12 回合奪勝後取得 1 千萬美元的酬勞為例，他在去年底與那須川天心的表演賽中，3 分鐘內便賺進 9 百萬美元，最後強調「Pacquiao 比賽是因為他必須，而我比賽是因為我想比。」

I find it real ironic how every time Pacquiao’s name is brought up in the media, my name is always attached to it. This man’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name and it’s about time you all stop using my brand for clout chasing and clickbait and let that man’s name hold weight of its own. For years, all you heard was that ” Floyd is afraid of Manny Pacquiao”. But what’s funny is, when we finally fought, I won so easily that everyone had to eat their words! All of the so called boxing experts, critics and jealous American “fan base” either went mute and ran for cover or made every excuse in the world as to why I should give Manny Pacquiao a rematch. My take on all this bullshit is that y’all are just upset that I broke Rocky Marciano’s record and hate the fact that a Black, high school dropout outsmarted you all by beating all odds and retiring undefeated while maintaining all my faculties simply by making smart choices and even smarter investments. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh!

SWIPE LEFT Let’s stick to the facts! Bob Arum is no longer your promoter, so when it comes to @mayweatherpromotions & PBC events I’m the HNIC! Bottom line, I make more money than you; I beat you, then I signed you! I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real BOSS would do. You made $10Million for 12 rounds, when I just made $9M in under 3 minutes playing around in an exhibition with a pizza delivery guy! I beat you mentally, physically and financially! Remember, you fight cause you have to, I fight when I want to! #TMT #TBE #mayweatherpromotions @greg_tmt
