Mayweather doesn’t want a Pacquiao rematch

Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, known as something of a flip-flopper extraordinaire, now says he is really, totally sure he doesn’t want a rematch with Manny Pacquiao. More sure than he was last week, at least, when he said he absolutely did want a rematch.


He’s also decided Pacquiao is a “sore loser and a coward,” after his opponent discussed a shoulder injury he says he aggravated during the match but made very few other public comments. Mayweather isn’t buying the injury idea. (Because no one could possibly be injured while being punched by a world-class prize fighter, right?)

“Excuses, excuses, excuses.… I’m not going to buy into the bull—…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,” “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, who hasn’t exactly built his reputation on being good with people, would also like to hear Pacquiao say this: “Mayweather, you were the better fighter.”
