The Floyd Mayweather shirt that will probably annoy Manny Pacquiao fans

New, comments

Floyd Mayweather isn't afraid of a little controversy, and a shirt he was selling on his website is bound to get under the skin of Manny Pacquiao fans.

It shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone that Floyd Mayweather's team will do whatever they can to get under the skin of Manny Pacquiao and his fans ahead of their bout this weekend. That even extends to the marketing side of the things, as The Money Team recently released a shirt with Floyd superimposed over...yes, that's the flag of the Philippines. Here's a larger version of it:

Floyd Shirt

Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports asked both Floyd and Manny about it. Floyd was all business, Manny thought it was funny.

Floyd:

"I'm not trolling anyone. Floyd Mayweather have fans from all around the world, you know. And my staff is very diverse. I have Filipinos working for me. You know, we have TMT (The Money Team) for Africa, TMT for Japan, TMT for Canada, and we also have TMT for the Philippines fans."

Manny:

"I like that, because he wants to join our team. TMT - The Manny Team!"

The shirt is sold out on Floyd's website, but is for sale at the MGM if you're in Vegas.
