Pacquiao Feels Mayweather Lost His Mind With 'Draw' of Trilogy

By Carlos Boogs

Eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao believes Floyd Mayweather Jr. has lost his mind after being advised that the retired pound-for-pound king had allegedly scored last Saturday's fight between Pacquiao (58-6-2, 38 KOs) and Tim Bradley (33-2-1, 13 KOs) as a draw.

Pacquiao had scored two knockdowns and was dominant in the contest. All three judges scored it 116-110. 

A report on ESPN claims that Mayweather spoke with Bradley following the contest and advised him that a draw was more than fair. The report on ESPN cited an unknown third party as their source for the claimed conversation. Mayweather allegedly told Bradley to 'go home and watch the replay with the sound off.'

 Pacquiao returned to the ring for the first time since last May's twelve round decision loss to Mayweather. He further injured an already damaged right shoulder in the fourth round and underwent surgery a few days later. The rehabilitation kept him out of the ring for the remainder of the year.

During an interview with 24 Oras, Pacquiao was informed of the ESPN report with Mayweather's opinion of the draw verdict. He said Mayweather made the right decision to retire last September, because something is obviously wrong with his mental state.

"If that is his opinion, it is right for him to retire. It seems there is really a problem [with his mental state]," stated Pacquiao.

Pacquiao himself announced his retirement following the win over Bradley. He left the door open for a potential return in the future after stating that his heart was '50-50' on fighting again. Right now he is running for a senate seat in the Philippines and wants to purse a full-time political career.

It should be noted that neither Bradley, or his trainer Teddy Atlas, had an issue with the outcome of the fight. Both of them praised Pacquiao and said he deserved to be the winner with a better than expected performance.

[QUOTE=SUBZER0ED;16608739]My mistake; in your mention of a rematch, you all but dismissed its significance, in stating that Pacquiao would get his ass kicked again. As if he really got his ass kicked in the first fight.[/QUOTE] Because it's not significant.…
