Floyd Mayweather Jr., who earlier told ESPN host Stephen A. Smith that he is willing to give Manny Pacquiao a rematch a year after his surgery, said he's changed his mind.
In an interview with Showtime’s Jim Gray (that will premiere this Sunday after the network’s replay of the #FightOfTheCentury), Mayweather said he has rescinded his rematch offer because Pacquiao is “a sore loser and he’s a coward.” The news was reported by ESPN earlier today.
Asked if he believes our Pambansang Kamao was troubled by his right shoulder injury, Mayweather said “absolutely not.”
“Excuses, excuses, excuses,” Mayweather said adding that “his right hand was fast and he was throwing them both fast and strong.”
The American boxer said he is exasperated with Pacquiao and his team for all the blame game they’re up to instead of crediting his victory.
“I’m not going to buy into the bullshit and I don’t want the public to buy into the bullshit. He lost. He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.”
The five-division world champion insisted that his last match would take place on September.
