MANNY PACQUIAO reckons Errol Spence Jr is better than Floyd Mayweather and could teach the boxing legend ‘how to fight toe to toe’.

Pacquiao was beaten by Mayweather in a 2015 bout that captured the imagination with 4.6million PPV buys and £600million in revenue.

The two fighting icons have continued to feud ever since despite never rematching.

Mayweather recently revealed he would contact Spence to give the ‘pointers’ on how to beat Pacquiao.

It comes ahead of PacMan’s unified welterweight world title challenge against the unbeaten American on August 21.

Pacquiao, 42, hit back at Mayweather, 44, and taunted that Spence, 31, does not need any help, as he is the better of the two.

He said: “You know actually Errol don’t need to have advice from Mayweather, because I believe that Errol is better than Mayweather.

“I think he will teach Mayweather how to fight toe to toe.”

Spence was a once former sparring partner of Mayweather’s and revealed the now-retired icon is still an advisor of his.

He said: “Definitely, he’s a guy that reaches out sometimes and talks to me and things like that.

“He tries to mentor me sometimes, so he’ll definitely reach out. If he says he’ll reach out, he probably will.”

Spence, the WBC and IBF champion, thanked Pacquiao for the praise at the expense of Mayweather, but will not be tricked into false sense of security.

He explained: “It is a great accomplishment, but like I said before, Manny Pacquiao is the kind of guy who will walk you to sleep.

“He will give you a lot of compliments and gratitude and things like that, and then as soon as the bell rings, he will be jumping all over you, so you know how I take it.”
