Manny Pacquiao in an interview with Jimmy Manicad of GMA News TV admitted that some of the comments from the Mayweather camp have irritated him.  He was specifically referring to Mayweather’s constant accusations that he is using steroids or an illegal substance.
According to Pacquiao, he consulted his lawyer and Mayweather Sr. retracted his comments and alluded that he was just joking around.  The Pound for Pound King is not known for trash talking but this time gave Floyd Mayweather Sr. an advice in his native language “Siguro sabihan yung anak niya na pag natuloy yung laban naming eh may ano ng kaunti…may hinanakit ng kunti dahil sa pag accuse ng tatay niya sa akin.”’ 
Essentially, Pacquiao said that Floyd Mayweather Sr. should tell his son that if their fight goes through that he’s got extra motivation and that is because of his dad’s accusations.  There is no doubt that Pacquiao will be focused and more determined than ever for his potential fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.  
Also in the interview, it was noted that many in his camp have already advised the WBO Welterweight Champion to retire after the Cotto fight, but was not ready to call it quits yet.  Although, analyzing his statements, it seems that his impending retirement is not too far off in the future.   When that day comes, the sport of boxing and its fans will surely miss him.
