Manny Pacquiao's Hall of fame trainer Freddie Roach has accused Floyd Mayweather Jnr of "making excuses not to fight" the Flipino Congressman but that his charge is "ready anytime" to face the American.

On Saturday night here in Sin City Pacquiao was clinical in earning a unanimous decision in his rematch with Timothy Bradley, avenging his controversial 2012 loss in their first meeting, to claim the WBO welterweight crown.

"We'd love to fight [Floyd] Mayweather but there have been so many excuses. He really doesn't seem to want to fight us, but we want that fight. I think my guy beats him," Roach told the The Daily Telegraph.

"It was not the best I have seen Manny perform, but I'm not annoyed with him, I'm annoyed at myself for not seeing Bradley's plan coming," Roach, a former boxer who has had a form of Parkinson's disease since he was 29, admitted to The Telegraph.

"I've stopped getting angry about Mayweather refusing to fight my guy, but we've agreed to everything - a 60/40 split of the purse, blood testing, whatever it is... and then he comes up with something else."
