article imagePacquiao says Mayweather is a friend and 'brother in Christ'

By Leo Reyes     Jan 17, 2015 in Sports
Manny Pacquiao has no bad blood against Floyd Mayweather but as a professional boxer he has a job to do and his fight against Mayweather is nothing personal as he considers him his brother in Christ.
In a face-to-face interview with Sean Evans of Complex News, Pacquiao said he and his team have agreed to everything Mayweather wants and is awaiting his signature on top of the dotted line of their fight contract.
Asked how disappointed he will be if the ongoing fight negotiation falls apart as what had happened in the past, Pacquiao said he is happy with what he has accomplished in his career but he wants the fight for the fans who have waited long enough for the bout they have long wanted to see.
Pacquiao also said he isn't annoyed with Mayweather adding that he understands him as well as the others who he had fought before but he's just doing his job as a boxer.
"My job in the ring is my job — nothing personal, he is my brother in Christ." said Pacquiao, who is actively pursuing his bible ministry.
Pacquiao is currently in the U.S. to confer with his promoter Bob Arum on the details of his nearly-signed fight contract with Mayweather.
It is possible Pacquiao will be able to seal the fight contract against Mayweather during the duration of his visit.
When asked if there is anything he wants to say to Mayweather, he had a concise answer: "Sign the contract," Pacquiao told tmz.com.
