Floyd Mayweather Calls Pacquiao “Coward” and “Sore Loser,” Says No Rematch
For those of you getting hyped for Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao rematch, you may as well forget about it. Mayweather initially said he’d put off his September fight to duke it out again, as he texted Stephen A. Smith, but after he heard about Pacman’s shoulder injury, everything changed.
“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 in an interview taped this week that will air Saturday night (9 ET) during the network’s replay of last Saturday night’s megafight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“If you lost, accept the loss and say, ‘Mayweather, you were the better fighter,'” Mayweather continued.
“I’m not going to buy into the bulls— … and I don’t want the public to buy into the bulls—,” Mayweather said. “He lost. He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.”
Asked whether he could detect a problem with Pacquiao’s right arm during the fight, Mayweather said, “Absolutely not. He was fast. His left hand was fast. His right hand was fast, and he was throwing them both fast and strong. Excuses, excuses.” –ESPN
Well, at least they’re both rich.
