Floyd Mayweather said he would fight Manny Pacquiao in a rematch of his fight from last Saturday night. Now, the undefeated boxer has changed his mind.
“Did I text Stephen A. Smith and say I will fight him again? Yeah, but I change my mind. At this particular time, no, because he’s a sore loser and he’s a coward,” Mayweather told Showtime’s Jim Gray in a taped interview to air on Saturday.
“If you lost, accept the loss and say, ‘Mayweather, you were the better fighter,'” Mayweather said.
Mayweather beat Pacquiao by unanimous decision, but after the fight, Pacquiao revealed he had a right shoulder injury he did not disclose before the fight. He later had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right surgery and will be out of action 9-12 months.
Some have attributed Pacquiao’s loss to the injury. That is something his opponent is not too happy about and he is not shy to call Pacquaio and his fans out about it.
“I’m not going to buy into the (expletive)… and I don’t want the public to buy into the (expletive),” Mayweather said. “He lost. He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.”
