NEW YORK (AP) — Floyd Mayweather says in an upcoming interview with Showtime that at this moment he’s not interested in a rematch with Manny Pacquiao “because he’s a sore loser and he’s a coward.”
The interview was recorded late Tuesday night and will air Saturday after the network’s replay of boxing’s richest fight, which Mayweather won by decision last weekend in Las Vegas to stay undefeated.
Asked if he thought Pacquiao was hampered by the right shoulder injury that later required surgery, Mayweather tells Jim Gray, “Absolutely not.”
He adds later: “Excuses, excuses, excuses.”
Mayweather says that “I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.”
