Floyd Calls Pacquiao A “Coward”

Could have used a bit more of this level of fire on May 2nd, that was my reaction when reading excerpts from Floyd Mayweathers’ interview with grand interrogator Jim Gray, portions of which will air on Showtime, on Saturday night.

Another reaction–I have no desire to see a rematch, and think I’m in the majority there, apart maybe from Pacmaniacs who think a 100% right shoulder could swing the momentum to the Manny side if they do another waltz.

Me, I think a Maidana sort has a better chance to topple Floyd than a Manny sort, which means someone who I think is better suited to fight at 140.

Here is the release Showtime sent out to hype the Gray chat:

EXCLUSIVE, CANDID INTERVIEW WITH
FLOYD MAYWEATHER TO PREMIERE
SATURDAY ON SHOWTIME®

Mayweather Goes In-Depth on Pacquiao Injury, the Possibility of a Rematch and Fighting Beyond Next September

SHOWTIME Premiere of World Championship Bout—Mayweather vs. Pacquiao—at 9 p.m. ET/PT Followed by Exclusive Interview and the Premiere of “INSIDE MAYWEATHER vs. PACQUIAO Epilogue”

NEW YORK (May 7, 2015)—Sports Emmy® Award winning reporter Jim Gray of SHOWTIME Sports® sat down with pound-for-pound champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather for an exclusive and candid interview late Tuesday night, just days after Mayweather dominated Manny “PacMan” Pacquiao en route to a 12-round unanimous decision victory last Saturday night in Las Vegas. The interview will premiere this Saturday, May 9, on SHOWTIME immediately following the network’s premiere of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao (9 p.m. ET/PT).

In the interview, Mayweather addresses the claim made by Pacquiao’s camp that the Philippine fighter sustained an injury to his right shoulder that hampered his ability during the bout. Mayweather also discusses the possibility of a rematch with Pacquiao and fighting beyond his next scheduled event in September.

“Absolutely not,” Mayweather told Gray when asked if he could detect a problem with Pacquiao’s shoulder during the 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, excuses,” continued Mayweather, who remains undefeated in his professional career with 48 wins, no losses and no draws.

“I’m not going to buy into the bull—… and I don’t want the public to buy into the bull—-. He lost. He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.”

Mayweather goes on to address the possibility of a rematch.

“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.’”

The compelling interview will air immediately following the SHOWTIME premiere of the welterweight world championship unification bout at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The interview will be immediately followed by the premiere of INSIDE MAYWEATHER vs. PACQUIAO Epilogue, the acclaimed original documentary series from SHOWTIME Sports.

Floyd is doing what he should be doing, causing a **** storm to build the hype for the rematch. Floyd is sly in and out of the ring. Pac will be out for a bit so there has to be drama and intrigue for fans in the interim.

There is a communication gap stirring up Money May. Da Manny has given Money .May mad props at being the best man of that scrap. Da Manny is making no excuses or putting Lil Floyd down. Agitators and instigators rough riding with that syet. Because they know Lil Floyd is sensitive and edgy about not getting his dues. Holla!


-deepwater2 :

Mayweather beat Jose Luis Castillo with a torn rotator cuff "Mayweather said he tore his left rotator cuff two days before the first fight and couldn't throw a jab or a left hook. He had surgery following the controversial decision over Castillo and he said his shoulder is completely healed now." Later, Mayweather underwent surgery on his left shoulder (Floyd partially blamed his damaged rotator cuff for the close win) I think lil Floyd was allowed his shot to numb the pain.


-SouthPawFlo :

Pacquiao and some of his fans should just admit that the better, smarter, more discipline boxer won, and let that be that... Pac is still and All-Time Great and what he has accomplished in the sport can never be taken away, but with the first thinking he won, then 30min later the "I lost because" talk and all the subsequent lawsuits from fans and finger pointing about who and what was declared and what wasn't it's putting a negative spin on the Great Pacman....

The truth is what it is. And the Panfans have said that. Victory is and was Lil Floyd's. But haters and posers are trying to make a mole hill into mountain. It ain't rocket science. It's the sweet science. Holla!
