The Pacquiao – Mayweather feud just got even worse. And it’s not a media beat-up.

Philippine fighter and multiple world champion Manny Pacquiao has hinted at his dislike for American undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather. But ahead of their May 2 WBC welterweight showdown Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, has admitted his fighter is fueled by Mayweather’s long and well documented history of domestic violence.

“For the first time in my life with Manny Pacquiao,” said Roach to USA Today Sports, “this is the first fighter he hasn’t liked; and I can tell.

“I know Manny Pacquiao doesn’t like this guy, and I think those are the reasons why.”

Mayweather has been involved in seven instances of alleged physical assault – on five different women. All of them ended with the fighter being either arrested or issued with a citation.

In 2012 Mayweather was sentenced to two months in a Nevada detention facility for his attack on Josie Harris – mother to three of his four children. The attack was witnessed by two of his sons.

“Manny is really against domestic violence,: said Roach who has himself witnessed his father striking his mother.

“It’s a big issue in the Philippines for him,” said Roach. “And him being a congressman, he can control some of that stuff. I’ve even thought about bringing a couple of the metro cops from Vegas in to tell Manny how many times he’d been arrested and how bad a guy he is. But I decided I can’t go that far. He (Pacquiao) already doesn’t like him (Mayweather).”

It seems the feeling is mutual.

In 2010 Mayweather launch an outrageous racist attack against Pacquiao over the internet. He called Pacquiao ‘that little yellow chump’ and promised to make the Philippine sensation ‘make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice.’

He then hinted that Pacquiao used PEDs. Pacquiao sued and the case was settled out of court.

But it’s not really settled until one of the fighters has beaten the other into submission.

May 2, people – Wait for May 2.
