Pacquiao is perhaps not-so-discreetly inferring that he lost to Mayweather because the latter kept running away from his punches instead of fighting him head on.
Mayweather, like many boxers, has been known for his trash-talk, but his rants took a racist turn against Pacquiao in 2010 in a video uploaded to YouTube.
“I’m on vacation for about a year, about a year,” Mayweather said. “As soon as we come off vacation, we’re going to cook that little yellow chump. We ain’t worried about that.

The Mayweather and McGregor fight began airing tonight at 9 p.m. EST.
