Floyd Mayweather has issued a press release explaining why he must and will duck Manny Pacquiao forever...

"This may come as no surprise, but I know I can't beat Manny Pacquiao, he's got the perfect style to beat me up. I can't deal with his lefty stance and those eight and ten punch combinations. So I hereby completely admit I will never fight Manny Pacquiao because I know I can't beat him and I don't want to risk my health or my undefeated record. I wish nothing but the best for Manny Pacquiao and Bob Arum and all Filippino boxing fans and I sincerely apologize for all the unsavory and false things I said about Manny Pacquiao, his team, his country and his fans. Please accept my sincere apologies. And please buy the PPV for my next fights against Amir Khan, Paulie Malignaggi, Victor Ortiz and Bernard Hopkins."

Thank you,
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
