Mayweather calls Pacquiao a coward
08 May 2015, 12:35
Las Vegas - Floyd Mayweather may have been gracious in the lead-up and in the immediate aftermath of his unanimous decision welterweight title victory over Manny Pacquiao last Saturday night, but it apparently didn’t last.
In an exclusive interview with Jim Gray that is scheduled to premiere Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime, the pound-for-pound king calls Pacquiao a “sore loser” and a “coward” and backtracked on reports that he would be interested in a rematch with the Filipino star.
“Did I text [ESPN’s] Stephen A. Smith and say I will fight him again?” Mayweather told Gray. “Yeah, but I change my mind. 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.’ ”
