Showtime's All Access gives the public a chance to see how Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana gear up for their upcoming May 3 fight. In its latest and second episode, a clip was shown when Mayweather was ridiculed and insulted by a couple of people, saying that the unbeaten American champ was too afraid to fight his long-time foe Manny Pacquiao. It was easy to tell that the two people, who had enough courage to make rude and mocking remarks directly to Mayweather's face, were fans of the Filipino fighter.

The episode featured a clip when Mayweather went for a night out to eat at a restaurant in Las Vegas. He was easily surrounded by people, and a couple of them were plucky enough to throw some jabs at him. As he arrived, one woman was shouting, "Pacquiao, Pacquiao." Another man further fueled that jeering and said that Mayweather was frightened of the Filipino boxer. "He's scared, he ain't gonna fight Pacquiao," the man said.
"You're cocky," the same woman even roared at Mayweather.
For a little while, Mayweather looked a little pissed, but he managed to maintain his composure. "Pacquiao can get off my d*ck," he said.
"Would you ever put a $6 million fighter's name in the same sentence as mine," he said.
Mayweather said that he fights the critics, media, as well as the biased fans. The American boxer, who just turned 37 in February, hinted that he's somewhat used to it because it is part of the life he chose to live. "It comes with the territory."
"You have to take the good with the good and the bad with the bad."
Watch Showtime's All Access Episode 2 here. Skip to 17:35 to see Mayweather's chance meeting with Pacquiao's fans.
Mayweather Still Unimpressed with Pacquiao
According to ESPN, Mayweather, who isn't keen on watching Pacquiao's fights, watched the Filipino's rematch with Timothy Bradley. He said Pacquiao deserved to be applauded. He said Pacquiao was the better fighter than Bradley. "I thought he deserved congratulations."
"He's the better man."
Even though he had praised Pacquiao for the victory, he thought that the eight-division world champion didn't display a stellar performance. "I wasn't pleased with his performance, but he got the victory the best way he knows how."
