Floyd Mayweather throws shades at Pacquiao, calls him 'victim 48'

Floyd Mayweather has branded his biggest rival Manny Pacquiao 'Victim 48' while signing an autograph for a fan.

The United States fighter and the Filipino clashed at the MGM Arena in 2015 in Las Vegas and Mayweather won the bout via unanimous points in his 48th career win.

The former three-division weight champion was in attendance at the Art of Music shop inside the MGM Grand in the past week.

Boxing faithfuls were not allowed to use their phones when they had the opportunity to meet Mayweather.

A fan asked Mayweather to sign his ticket from the 2015 fight and the undefeated American asked the supporter to bring his phone out.

The 42-year-old then told the fan he was about to do something special and started to thrash-talk Pacquiao.

He drew a huge black cross over Pacquiao's face and labelled him 'Victim 48' above his head.

"So, what I'm about to do right now is sign 'Victim 48,'" he said.

"So, what I'm gonna go for you... I gotta cross him out!"

Mayweather announced in November he was coming out of retirement in 2020 as Terence Crawford, Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan have all called him out.

On the other hand, Pacquiao debunked hopes of him returning into the squared circle.

"I've got calls to get back into the ring, but my health is my wealth," the 'Pacman' told Reuters last month.

"Boxing is a very, very brutal sport. In the last few years, a lot of fighters have died inside that squared circle.

"You have got to know when to hang it up. I had a great career.

"I'll still travel and do exhibitions. I make great money doing exhibitions; between $10 and $30million.

"I think I make more doing that than most fighters make fighting."
