Mayweather Calls Pacquiao ‘Coward’, Says No Rematch

Following his statement that he called rematch with Manny Pacquiao, the undefeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., has reversed his course on Thursday but describing the Filipino boxer as a “coward” and a “sore loser.”


Mayweather expressed his disgust in an interview with Showtime to be broadcast on Saturday following the statement  from Pacquiao’s camp about the injured shoulder causing his defeat.

“I’m not going to buy into the bull— … and I don’t want the public to buy into the bull—-,” Mayweather said in a sampling of quotes released by Showtime on Thursday.

“He lost. He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.”

Mayweather also added that he had not noticed Pacquiao being hampered by his shoulder their bout.

“He was fast. His left hand was fast. His right hand was fast and he was throwing them both fast and strong. Excuses, excuses.”

However, on Monday, an MRI scan in Los Angeles confirmed the Pacquiao had a torn rotator cuff. On Wednesday he underwent surgery.

Earlier this week, the American boxer opened up about having a rematch with the Filipino even telling ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith that he would delay his proposed retirement from the sport.

“I will fight him in a year after his surgery,” Mayweather told Smith in a text.

However, the 38-year-old American made a complete U-turn on that statement Thursday.

“Did I text Stephen A. Smith and say I will fight him again? Yeah, but I change my mind,” said Mayweather.

“At this particular time, no, because he’s a sore loser and he’s a coward … If you lost, accept the loss and say, ‘Mayweather, you were the better fighter’.”, he disclosed.
