American boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. will not give Manny Pacquiao another chance?
Mayweather has seemingly slammed the door on a potential mega-fight against Pacquiao, telling a Michigan news outlet that he does not want to give the Filipino fighter any chance.
Mayweather trained hard for the September 14 fight against Mexico’s Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, told MLive over the weekend that the Pacquiao fight has run its course.
Pacquiao had the chance to make the fight in the past, and basically, that is the best place Mayweather likes to leave it.
Mayweather has previously said he will be willing to fight Pacquiao, but only if the Filipino signed with his company, Mayweather Promotions.
But Mayweather told MLive that even that will not persuade him to give the Pacman a shot.
That was probably how he was feeling at that particular time, he is only human and does contradict himself and he is not perfect.
How are things today? Pacquiao is not going to get a chance anymore to fight with Mayweather.
He was feeling that way weeks ago and now he is feeling like Mayweather would not even give him a chance because Pacquaio had a chance but he blew it, so that’s what it is.
Boxing fans clamored for a mega-fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather for years, as the two boxers climbed to the top of the sport’s pound-for-pound rankings.
But Pacquiao’s recent dip in form has taken off a lot of the bout’s luster.
Although the two sides engaged in repeated negotiations, they disagreed on several key issues, including blood and urine testing, as well as the revenue split.
Pacquiao has lost two consecutive bouts, will try to bounce back in November when he fights Brandon Rios in Macau.
