Floyd Mayweather Says No To Pacquiao Rematch: “He’s A Coward”

Remember when Floyd Mayweather said that he would consider fighting Manny Pacquiao again next year because of the injury sustained to Pacquiao?

Well, Mayweather has changed his mind.
“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 said in an interview with Showtime’s Jim Gray that will air tomorrow night during the replay of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight that ESPN reported.

“If you lost, accept the loss and say, ‘Mayweather, you were the better fighter.’”

The proposed rematch wouldn’t happen until 2016 considering that Pacquiao’s recent surgery will require him to be on the shelf for the next 9-12 months. Mayweather has remained firm that his last fight would be this September, which already put Pacquiao out of the running.

However, due to the nature of the injury and how it may have affected the outcome of the fight, Mayweather originally stated that he would consider giving Pacquiao another shot despite the wide unanimous decision victory he won. But that has all changed as Mayweather likely grew weary of hearing the excuses and reality set in.

“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.”

Could this just be posturing to make a rematch even bigger, or is it simply Mayweather blowing off Pacquiao?
