MAYWEATHER AGREES FOR A REMATCH WITH PACQUAIO IN 2016

Las Vegas—In sudden turn of events, winner Floyd Mayweather told ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith in a text Tuesday that he would be open to a rematch after Manny Pacquiao recovers from shoulder surgery to repair a tear in his rotator cuff in 2016.

“I will fight him in a year after his surgery,” Mayweather texted Smith on the heels of his unanimous decision over Pacquiao in the richest fight ever.

Eight divisiom champion Manny Pacquiao, who lost the much touted “ Fight of the Centurty” last Saturday will have surgery this week to repair a “significant tear” of his right rotator cuff and will miss nine to 12 months.

The 38-year-old Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs) admitted during Saturday’s postfight news conference that he is “human” and occasionally contradicts himself.

Pacquiao Cries “Sabotage”

Pacquaio in a press conference after the fight said “he was only 60% on form” and gave that reason why he lost the fight. He also hinted on”sabotage “ and blamed the Nevada Boxing Commission for being partial to Mayweather in subsequent press conference in Los Angeles as he confirmed that he “ has the recurrent shoulder injury.”

Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache told ESPN.com on Monday that Pacuiao will undergo surgercy to repair a “significant tear” in his rotator cuff, which he suffered prior to the fight. The surgery will sideline the boxer for at least nine to 12 months.

NSAC Sanctions?

Meanwhile, Pacquiao, is being threatened sanctions from Nevada boxing officials for failing to disclose his shoulder injury on a form prior to Friday’s weigh-in.

Pacquiao’s promoter put out a statement on behalf of the fighter late Monday afternoon saying that the injury was disclosed to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which approved the use of an anti-inflammatory shot for the fight.

But USADA was only a third party to the fight, charged only with testing the fighters for banned substances in training and the night of the bout.

“We had no medical information, no MRIs, no documents,” said Travis Tygart, who heads the USADA. “It was not an anti-doping issue.

A little more than two hours before the fight, Pacquiao’s corner asked Nevada regulators whether he could be given a shot of Toradol, an anti-inflammatory.

NASC’s Aguilar denied it, saying the commission had no previous indication that there was an injury and could not allow a shot in fairness to the Mayweather camp.
