And most recently, Mayweather said he’d relinquish his titles, but the World Boxing Organization ended up having to strip him of his welterweight belt Monday. Because he couldn’t catch Floyd that is the reason.
It seems like Manny Pacquiao is not done with boxing just yet.
Pacquiao and his fanatics hurt the sport, they are delusional and sore losers. And let’s face it, Mayweather’s image could use a positive spin.
Although technically the Pacquiao fight was an engaging contest, to the fair-weather supporter the bout came across as boring. The only way Pacquiao could have had a chance is if he fought wild and aggressive with no fear and maybe catch Floyd with a power shot.
But undoubtedly, there are still quite a number of opponents chasing after a bout against Pacquiao. His revelation was agreed upon by trainer/coach Robert Garcia; in an interview with Luis Sandoval of Fight Hype this afternoon, July 9, Robert said Floyd really is the best of his era right now.
There may still be other fights ready for Pacquiao to take, like another match against long-time rival Juan Manuel Marquez. “He’s a boxer who bears the stamp of the WBO, has won every award that you can imagine and he’s been the top star of our era”. In fact, Mayweather will likely fight another two or three times because he buys expensive cars and makes it rain at the strip club several times a week.
Mayweather has named Andre Berto and Karim Mayfield as potential opponents for his next fight, and his contract with Showtime runs out at the end of the year.
Pacquiao also responded to a video posted in Instagram by Mayweather last week, mocking him with his claims of injury during their fight.
