Sorry, fight fans … Floyd Mayweather’s making it clear — the Manny Pacquiao tilt is off.
“I don’t give a f*** about what’s going on with Pacquiao,” Floyd tells TMZ Sports.
Remember … Floyd was singing a little different tune just a few weeks ago — when he said, “I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another 9 figure pay day on the way.”
But, Floyd tells us that’s now off, saying, “We not going to make that happen right now. Not right now. We must take that fight and let that fight build. And then, down the line, let that fight happen.”
So, what happened??
Mayweather says it’s kinda complicated … but, basically, since Pacman’s now signed with Floyd’s manager, Al Haymon — they wanna go a different route.
“I think the best fight for Pacquiao — what I told Al Haymon — was probably the Adrien Broner fight. And then we got Errol Spence and Terence Crawford.”
In the meantime … Floyd seems sure as hell set on getting in the ring with Khabib and/or Conor McGregor.
Floyd Mayweather Says 70% Chance Khabib Fight Happens
Tyron Woodley says he spoke with Floyd Mayweather — and the boxer told him he honestly believes there’s a 70% chance the fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov actually happens.
You can see Tyron give all the details about his call with Floyd on this week’s ‘Hollywood Beatdown’ … where the UFC champ also reveals what Floyd’s doing behind the scenes to make it happen.
“Floyd says it’s the real deal.”
Tyron also explains why he thinks BOTH guys in the Khabib vs. Conor fight looked terrible — and tells us what he REALLY thinks about Canelo Alvarez’s new $365-million contract.
Plus, Tyron also brings in a very special guest and drops some info about his hit song, “I’ll Beat Yo Ass,” that could make some people RICH!

Floyd Mayweather Says He’ll Rematch Conor McGregor After Khabib Fight
Floyd Mayweather says he ain’t done with Conor McGregor — telling TMZ Sports he’ll give the Irishman a rematch in the boxing ring right after he tunes up Khabib Nurmagomdov.
“McGregor was talking that sh*t, so it ain’t over,” Floyd told us while shopping in Bev Hills this weekend.
“After me and Khabib lock up, me and McGregor we gonna lock up again.”
As we previously reported, Floyd says he’ll accept Khabib’s challenge and will fight him in the boxing ring sometime in the near future, because it’ll do “crazy numbers.”
Floyd says he expects to make a 9-figure check from the Khabib fight — and a rematch with Conor could be just as successful.
“I’m ready to go out there and get the job done and entertain. ‘Cause me and McGregor Mayweather was real entertaining. I gave people what they wanted to see.”
Floyd also says his fights with UFC stars are helping the sport of MMA — telling TMZ Sports, “I’m helping keep combat sports alive!”
Of course, Conor and Floyd clashed back in August 2017 — with Floyd dominating most of the fight and ultimately getting a TKO in the 10th round.
Khabib says he’ll fare better than Conor — claiming he outstruck McGregor when they fought at UFC 229.
