The news
has it that ,Floyd Mayweather has finally disclosed to the media that  he is at most willing to grant his college Manny
Pacquiao a rematch
following the petition by the Filipino boxer’s disclosure
and revelation that a shoulder injury he sustained  weighed down his general  performance in last weekend’s world title
showdown,the worldwide leading website in sports  ESPN reported on Tuesday.
The event
did not just end there ESPN said that Floyd Mayweather also told journalist
Stephen A Smith in a text message that he was at all time  ready to don gloves once again, after Pacquiao
fully  recovers from surgery to repair a
rotator cuff.
“I
will fight him in a year after his surgery,” Mayweather said in the text
message, according to ESPN.
Mayweather’s
apparent readiness to step into the ring with Pacquiao once more appears to
contradict remarks he made in the aftermath of his victory in Las Vegas on
Saturday, when he insisted he planned to retire after one more fight in
September.
“My
last fight is in September, and then it’s time for me to hang it up,” said
Mayweather after his unanimous decision victory.
The 38-year-old, who is just one win away from matching
Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record, has previously said he has no desire to move past
the heavyweight’s revered unbeaten benchmark.
However while it is doubtful that any rematch with Pacquiao
could generate the levels of interest and income seen in their first encounter,
it would still earn enough to be a money-spinning duel.
Pacquiao’s camp on Monday issued a statement confirming that
the Filipino had suffered a “significant” muscle tear in his
shoulder.
“We have an MRI scan that confirms he has a rotator
cuff tear. He has a significant tear,” surgeon Neal ElAttrache of the
Kerlan Jobe Orthopedic Clinic said.
ElAttrache is one of the most respected surgeons in North
America, having operated on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Los
Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke and Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant.
Pacquiao’s camp have complained that the Nevada State
Athletic Commission barred the fighter from receiving treatment for the injury
using an anti-inflammatory injection approved by the United States Anti-Doping
Agency.
