If you think the father of Floyd Mayweather Jr. will stop talking about the fight between his son and Filipino world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao more than seven months after it happened, you’re wrong.
“I look at him like a man that was chasing Floyd for years to fight, a fight that was an easy fight for Floyd. I told everybody that the fight was easy. The fight between the two, which Mayweather, Jr won via unanimous decision was one of the less entertaining fights of Pacquiao’s career,” Floyd Mayweather, Sr. said in an interview “On the Ropes Boxing Radio” on December 2.
Undefeated five-division world champion Mayweather, Jr. and eight-division world champion Pacquiao’s match, dubbed “Fight of the Century”, took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 2.
Mayweather won by a unanimous decision, which critics believed was lopsided since he was “running” away from his opponent.
The American boxer retired after beating Andre Berto on September 12.
Pacquiao said he was also set to retire in 2016 after one last fight although his opponent has not been named.
The camp of Pacquiao, Representative of Sarangani, was hoping for a rematch between the Filipino great and Mayweather, Jr.
Pacquiao, 36, is a senatorial candidate under Vice President Jejomar “Jojo” Binay’s United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) party.
