Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants to fight Manny Pacquiao on May 5 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Just check his twitter page.

Mayweather, who earlier had tweeted a picture of a betting slip from a Las Vegas casino for a $400,000 win on Monday night’s Allstate BCS Championship Game, sent out two tweets seeking Pacquiao.

“Manny Pacquiao I’m calling you out let’s fight May 5th and give the world what they want to see,” read Mayweather’s first tweet.

Mayweather followed with this: “My Jail Sentence was pushed back because the date was locked in. Step up Punk.”

Mayweather was scheduled to begin an 87-day sentence last Friday, after pleading guilty to a reduced battery domestic violence charge and no contest to two harassment charges.

That sentence was delayed until June 1 so Mayweather could fulfill a contractual obligation for a fight at the MGM Grand, which he estimated could be worth more than $100 million.
