Mayweather: No Shot For Pacquiao, He Blew His Chance

By Edward Chaykovsky

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has changed his mind about the comments he made regarding Manny Pacquiao a few weeks ago. Talking with Yahoo Sports, Mayweather said he would be willing to face Pacquiao - but only if the Filpino star signed to Mayweather's promotional company. Mayweather now says there is no reason to give Pacquiao a shot - regardless of what happens and what Pacquiao does in the future. 

"That's probably how I was feeling at that particular time," Mayweather said to writer David Mayo of Mlive. "I'm only human. Floyd Mayweather does contradict himself. I'm only human. I'm not perfect. I mean, I think we all do. How are things today? He's not going to get a chance to fight me. I was feeling that way weeks ago. Now, I'm feeling like I wouldn't even give him a chance. He had a chance, he blew it, so that's what it is."

Mayweather faces WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and Pacquiao takes on Brandon Rios on November 23rd in Macau, China.

[QUOTE=GRboxing;13671884]Any time someone says to me that the Delahoya fight was close, I laugh and no longer take their opinion seriously. I liked the point about Matthysse/Canelo rematch/Garcia etc being viable options for Mayweather later. Even BRadley if he can…
