Pacquiao claims Mayweather can 'no longer fight at an elite level'

Manny Pacquiao
distanced himself from a rematch with Floyd Mayweather
, insisting the 'Money Man' should stay retired if he cannot fight at an elite level anymore. 
The Filipino legend lost a unanimous decision to his great rival back in 2015 in a massive £470million showdown. 
There have always been murmurings of a potential second fight but Mayweather is unlikely to come out of retirement.
Pacquiao told World Boxing News
: 'Floyd is retired. He can no longer fight at the elite level I am fighting at, he should stay retired.
'I am only looking at active fighters. Floyd is not active anymore.'
The 40-year-old is fighting Keith Thurman on July 20 for the WBA super welterweight title.
He added: 'Right now, I can only see this fight and I already wish it was July 20.
'Keith Thurman is going to be surprised by what he sees from me in the ring in Las Vegas.'
But as he nears the end of his career, he wants to see the legend of the Pacquiao name continue through his son. 
Jimmel Pacquiao is training under Freddie Roach and his father has grand ambitions for his future.
