Muhammad Ali's tweets pack a punch.

The boxing legend landed a crowd-pleasing #AliTweet following Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s majority decision win over Marcos Maidana on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Ali's call for Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao is one that many boxing fans will echo following the action at the MGM Grand hotel. The Mayweather-Pacquiao pairing once seemed inevitable but has never materialized. Negotiations between the fighters' camps in 2009 broke down over payout splits and drug testing procedures.

Ali is far from the first to call for such a bout but perhaps he'll get Mayweather's attention. Days earlier, Ali thanked Mayweather for following him on Twitter.

According to the profile of @MuhammadAli, a verified account, any tweets with the hashtag #AliTweet originated from The Champ himself.
