Floyd Mayweather Jr. said his father had it "totally wrong" just days after Floyd Mayweather Sr. had gone on record insisting the fight between his son and Manny Pacquiao will happen. 

On Wednesday, trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. told Fight Hype that a fight between his son and Manny Pacquiao is imminent: 

Two days later, the undefeated boxing champion got on the phone to refute those remarks, saying that his dad was mistaken: 

This is the latest in a series of jabs and taunts from both sides of a potential Pacquiao-Mayweather fight. While it’s generally seen that this clash of the titans would be a huge boon for the sport of boxing, the fighters can’t seem to agree on much of anything to help bring this would-be marquee fight to light. 

Pacquiao has gone on record saying he’d be on board to fight Mayweather. Mayweather has said he plans to retire after completing the last two fights on his Showtime/CBS contract.  

Pacquiao took a punch at Mayweather’s authenticity on Twitter:

To which Mayweather then returned with this less-than-flattering post: 

If a Mayweather-Pacquiao showdown ever does transpire within the ring, at least they won’t have to reach very far to find the fuel to fight.
