The 37-year-old Undefeated Boxing Champ Floyd Mayweather, in his first interview since defeating Manny Pacquiao in the so-called “Fight of the Century” last weekend, told Showtime’s Jim Gray in an exclusive interview that he has changed his mind and no longer wants a rematch with Manny Pacquiao.
During his interview, he was asked, if he thought Pacquiao was hampered by the right shoulder injury that later required surgery, Mayweather tells Jim Gray, “Absolutely not.”
“Excuses, excuses, excuses,” he said later.
“He was fast,” Mayweather insists in quotes released Thursday. “His left hand was fast. His right hand was fast and he was throwing them both fast and strong.”
Mayweather even adds that “I’m not going to buy into” it, “and I don’t want the public to buy into” it.
“He lost,” Mayweather said. “He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.”
So tell me fans, was Floyd Mayweather right all along that people would discredit his win over Pacquiao? Is he in a no-win situation here? Should he even entertain a rematch with Pacquiao? What do you think?
