MANILA, Philippines – Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao took a page from Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s playbook as he took to Instagram to fire a jab at the unbeaten American superstar.


Stop throwing punches on Instagram and let's get in the ring! #TBE #TheBestExcuses

On his Instagram page, Pacquiao posted a photo of his latest fight against Chris Algieri, whom he knocked down six times en route to victory.

But his caption was directed towards Mayweather.

"Stop throwing punches on Instagram and let's get in the ring," was the caption of the photo, along with the hashtags "#TBE" and "#TheBestExcuses."

Mayweather has taken to calling himself "TBE," which starts for "The Best Ever."

Pacquiao has said Mayweather should face him in the ring as fans deserve to see their much-awaited "mega-fight."

Last week, Mayweather used Instagram to mock Pacquiao, posting a video of the Filipino getting knocked down by Juan Manuel Marquez in their 2012 fight.
