Floyd Mayweather Jnr believes that Manny Pacquiao will face a tough task trying to defeat Timothy Bradley in the duo's upcoming bout.

Floyd Mayweather Jnr has hit out yet again at rival Manny Pacquiao by claiming that he will struggle against upcoming opponent Timothy Bradley.

The 35-year-old, who originally wanted to go head to head with the Filipino fighter, is due to go up against Miguel Cotto for the Puerto Rican WBA light-middleweight title.

"We wanted the Pacquiao fight for May 5 but it didn't happen, so there's nothing I could do," said Mayweather. "You know, as I said before I'm always looking to give the fans what they want to see.

"I'm pretty sure Pacquiao has a tough task on his hands with the young fighter - I don't really know his name - but I've had a chance to watch him and he can box a little bit, so it's not going to be an easy task for him."

Mayweather will face Cotto in Las Vegas on May 5.
