article imageFloyd, Sr. disputes Pacquiao's loss to son due to shoulder injury

By Leo Reyes     Sep 27, 2016 in Sports
Floyd Mayweather, Sr. disputed claims that Manny Pacquiao lost to his son Floyd Mayweather, Jr. due to shoulder injury saying his son clearly beat Pacquiao and if they fight in a possible rematch his shoulder will be hurt again.
Floyd, Sr., who was a professional boxer before turning boxing coach and trainer also criticized Pacquiao for claiming he won the fight against his son when everybody is saying that it was a clear victory for Floyd, Jr.
"If I was my son, I wouldn’t even give him another fight because he said lies about how my son won the fight. Talking about his arm, something wrong with arm, weren’t nothing wrong with his arm. Floyd clearly beat him, everybody saw that and everybody knows that. If they fight again, his arm gonna be hurt again, OK.," Floyd Sr. told OTR Boxing.
Floyd Sr commented on Pacquiao's injury as well as his son's comeback fight in the wake of rumblings about a possible Pacquiao rematch as well as the ongoing talks about the potential clash between his son and unbeaten WBC welterweight champion Danny Garcia.
In his post-fight comment about the Mayweather fight, Pacquiao said he thought he won by at least two points despite his claimed shoulder injury.
"Hindi ako nagko-complain sa desisyon ng mga judges," (I am not complaining about the judges' verdict) Pacquiao noted in his interview with GMA News' Jessica Soho on Wednesday night, but added, "Nung ni-review ko, panalo ako ng two points." (When I reviewed it, I won by two points)
Pacquiao's pay-per-view buys suffered a sharp drop (except on the Mayweather fight) since his devastating KO loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in 2012. He hopes to arrest the declining PPV output after Nov. 5 title fight.
Pacquiao's declining PPV numbers have already cost him his usual $20 million guaranteed purse and his longtime promoter Bob Arum won't be restoring it unless he shows his newfound killer instinct and go for a knockout win on Nov. 5.
The 37-year-old neophyte senator is now halfway to his training for his title fight against WBO welterweight champion Jessie Vargas on Nov. 5 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
