    Floyd Mayweather says thrash-talking days over, claims he's all business in and out of ring

    “I’ve done all the trash-talking already. I am at a point where I know what I bring to the table,” says Floyd Mayweather Jr.  

    LOS ANGELES – Floyd Mayweather’s silence doesn’t mean he’s holding back in his fight against Manny Pacquiao.

    It’s just that he’s finally through his trash-talking days and he claims to be all business in and out of the ring.

    “I’ve always had a big mouth and I’m not being quiet or holding back for any reason but that I’ve matured,” said Mayweather in his media conference call on Wednesday (Thursday Manila time), 10 days before he finally gets into the ring with Manny Pacquiao in boxing’s most highly-anticipated bout in recent years.

    “I’ve done all the trash-talking already. I am at a point where I know what I bring to the table.”

    All the talking has so far been left to his trainer and father Floyd Sr., adviser Al Haymon, and manager Leonard Ellerbe, chief executive officer of Mayweather Promotions, who joined Floyd Jr. during the conference call.

    “I know it’s the biggest fight in boxing history, but I’m not going to put that pressure on myself. I will be at my best,” he said. “At the end of the day it comes down to the two fighters in the ring not what Freddie Roach says or thinks.

    “My only job is to be the best, to be the best in the sport of boxing.”
