Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao is beginning 2015 by taunting fellow boxer Floyd "Money" Mayweather to step into a boxing ring with the Filipino pugilist.
Pacquiao, the 36-year-old Christian fighter and politician, took to Instagram to post an image of himself in front of a fire. He captioned the image with a message about fighting Mayweather.
"Floyd brags about his lifestyle and everything! I don't care," Pacquiao wrote on Instagram. "I'm just waiting here for him to sign the contract! #fightpacquiao."
Mayweather, the 37-year-old undefeated fighter, took to his own Instagram account recently to speak about his luxurious lifestyle and love for God.
"Yes, I got a 14 passenger jet. Got to give them another reason to hate, but I will motivate the people that are ambitious and want to be winners in life," Mayweather wrote on Instagram. "I am guilty! I'm materialistic and I'm motivated by money…but GOD is first in my life."
Fans of the two fighters have been waiting for a match between them for years. While allegations of drug use and disagreements about contracts and money have been rumored to halt the anticipated fight in the past, reports have recently surfaced about the pair stepping into the ring this year.
Both men have been considered one another's rivals and have expressed interest in fighting each other throughout the years. Despite some bitter verbal jabs from Mayweather in the past, Pacqiao has made it clear that he sees the fighter as his brother in Christ.
"I'm praying for him. I'm not treating him as my opponent, my enemy or anything," Pacquiao revealed in a 2012 Boxing Scene report. "I'm treating him as my friend, my brother. I'm praying for him that all things will be fine for him."
