Floyd Mayweather Jr. said on a conference call Wednesday night that he watched a full Manny Pacquiao fight April 12 for the first time since Pacquiao stopped Miguel Cotto in November 2009.

Mayweather wasn’t impressed with how Pacquiao performed. He was even less impressed with how Timothy Bradley boxed in a 12-round fight Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) won by large margins on all three scorecards at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“Congratulations. [Pacquiao] was the better man,” said Mayweather, who’ll defend his WBC welterweight title against Argentina’s Marcos Maidana, the WBA title-holder, on May 3 at MGM Grand. “But as far Bradley, whoever he’s working out with, they have to make a lot of changes because he’s lifting too many weights. He’s more worried about how he looks on the scale than he how performs inside that ring. Bradley went out there and fought his heart out, but I think that he was throwing a lot of shots like an amateur. I think he was making a lot of mistakes. He was very, very fatigued early on. I think that he was making a lot of mistakes and fighting like an amateur.

“I think both fighters fought like amateurs. I thought Pacquiao fought like an amateur, also, and I wasn’t pleased with his performance. But, you know, he got the victory the best way he knows how. But I wasn’t pleased with his performance at all. I’m seeing something totally different in Pacquiao, but still, that don’t make me say I’m going to go out there and fight him because he’s with Bob Arum and I’m with Mayweather Promotions.”

Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) also observed that Pacquiao doesn’t seem to be the same fighter now that controversial strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza no longer works with the Filipino superstar.

“I don’t see the same pop in Pacquiao’s shots,” Mayweather said. “Me, myself, you know, I’m not saying this guy is doing anything, but I don’t see the same snap in his shots, he’s getting tired and he wasn’t getting tired before. So I’m seeing something totally different, whereas me, I’m still sharp, I’m still smart, I’m not getting fatigued. I wasn’t getting fatigued from the beginning. Those are the things that I see. I don’t know if you guys see it, but that’s what I see.”
