Floyd Mayweather says no to a rematch with Manny Pacquiao
- Floyd Mayweather denies a rematch with Manny Pacquiao and calls him a sore loser.
Floyd Mayweather has made it clear that he is not up for a rematch with Manny Pacquiao calling him a "coward" and "sore loser". Mayweather did not heed to Pacquiao's claims of shoulder injury hampering his chances in the game.
"He lost. He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this," said Mayweather.
Pacquiao revealed post match that a shoulder injury prevented him from giving his best in the 'Fight of the Century'.
Mayweather said he could not identify any signs of physical problems with the Filipino boxer.
"Absolutely not," Mayweather said in an interview with Showtime. "He was fast. His left hand was fast, his right hand was fast and he was throwing them both fast and strong."
Pazquiao successfully underwent arthroscopic surgery earlier this week to repair a torn rotator cuff and is expected to out for at least a year.
The American boxer had earlier indicated his willingness to fight Pacquiao after his surgery.
"I change my mind. At this particular time, no, because he's a sore loser and he's a coward. If you lost, accept the loss," he said.
There were reports of Mayweather facing British boxer Amir Khan in his last match in September this year. The 38-year-old is yet to confirm these reports.Published 08 May 2015, 16:44 IST
