Manny Pacquiao Blames Loss to Mayweather on Shoulder Injury

After losing the boxing match against Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather over the weekend, Manny ‘PacMan’ Pacquiao is saying that a potential reason for his loss was an injury to his right shoulder, which he got while training in April.

According to Daily Beast:

Pacquiao says he didn’t consider postponing the match because he thought a lidocaine injection would make the pain tolerable, but he was denied the shot due to a miscommunication among fight promoter Top Rank, the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and an anti-doping agency. “I’m disappointed,” he told the Los Angeles Times, and said he may seek surgery for the injury. On forms filled out at the weigh-in, however, Pacquiao’s team checked the “no” box for shoulder injuries.

    Obviously this is bad reporting, If you watched the post fight interview Manny never blamed the loss on his shoulder injury.

    Excuses galore. You are your trainer predicted knockouts and took selfies before the fight! If your injury was that serious, you COULD have pulled out ..integrity is the word.

    What a horrible way to put it… he BLAMES loss… reporters should be neutral, this headline says you’re a Mayweather fan. Nonsense. And even a blind bat could see he wasn’t at his best two days ago, like, he was literally struggling half of the fight. I guess you guys have never watched a pacman fight. Smh.
