Floyd Mayweather, who told ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith on Tuesday that he would be willing to put off his planned September retirement to grant Manny Pacquiao a rematch next year, said he has changed his mind.
“Did I text Stephen A. Smith and say I will fight him again? Yeah, but I change my mind. At this particular time, no, because he’s a sore loser and he’s a coward,” Mayweather told Showtime in an interview taped this week that will air Saturday night (9 ET) during the network’s replay of last Saturday night’s megafight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“If you lost, accept the loss and say, ‘Mayweather, you were the better fighter,’” Mayweather continued.
After the fight, Pacquiao said he went into the ring with a right shoulder injury that hampered his performance. Pacquiao had arthroscopic surgery Wednesday in Los Angeles to repair what his surgeon, Dr. Neal ElAttrache, termed a “significant tear” to his rotator cuff.
Pacquiao will be out of the ring for nine months to a year, but Mayweather, who planned to fight again in September in the final bout of his six-fight Showtime/CBS contract and then retire, told Smith he would fight Pacquiao in a rematch next spring once he had healed.

Bill Simmons, who built a personal empire at ESPN and is one of America’s most influential sports personalities, will leave the media giant when his contract expires in the fall. He and the company were unable to reach an extension after months of talks.
As ESPN President John Skipper put it:
“I decided today that we are not going to renew Bill Simmons’ contract. We have been in negotiations and it was clear it was time to move on. ESPN’s relationship with Bill has been mutually beneficial – he has produced great content for us for many years and ESPN has provided him many new opportunities to spread his wings. We wish Bill continued success as he plans his next chapter. ESPN remains committed to Grantland and we have a strong team in place.”
