If you ask his opinion regarding the possible rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Showtime executive Stephen Espinoza will tell you that he is open for a possible MayPac II in the near future. In his interview with R. Tomas Umstead Friday, May 22, Stephen confirmed that Showtime is open to it, but he never denied the fact that it will only happen when the boxing fans ask them to make it happen again.
“I think we have to remain open to it. There’s a lot of chatter on both sides about the possibility, once Manny successfully recovers from shoulder surgery, if there a demand and if Floyd is still active or would consider coming back to being active then it would be a topic of conversation. But it will be driven by demand,” Espinoza said.
The mega fight is over. Floyd Mayweather had already been scored a unanimous victory over Manny Pacquiao, but despite his victory, some people still couldn’t believe that it was the fight that they have wanted to see between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. In your own opinion, do you consider the match up as the fight of the century? Well, Pacquiao is now facing several cases in the United States due to his shoulder injury.
This means, fight fans are disappointed because of his hidden secret. During the post fight interview, Manny revealed that he was suffering from a rotator cap injury while he was in the boxing ring with Mayweather; maybe, Pacquiao was expecting his supporters to understand his loss, but unfortunately, some of his supporters did not understand why he had to hide the injury and make the fight happened.
Anyway, Manny Pacquiao is now in the Philippines and enjoying his million dollar earnings in the fight. Is he still hoping for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather? A few days after the mega fight, a report regarding the possible rematch between the two greatest fighters came out.
It was Stephen A. Smith who spread the good news online; at the time, fight fans were expecting to see Manny and Floyd again in the ring; but after a few days, Mayweather commented that the revelation of Stephen A. Smith was not true. He insisted that he is not interested to have a rematch with Manny Pacquiao. He also called the Filipino boxing icon as a sore loser.
Again, no matter what Floyd is saying, he will never deny the fact that his unanimous decision win over Manny Pacquiao is his biggest achievement in his entire boxing career. The mega fight was almost six years in the making.
Fight fans will agree to that; but sad to say, they disappointed them specifically Floyd Mayweather when he chose to run instead of exchanging his power punches with Manny Pacquiao. The flawless opinion from the boxing fans that continue to exist online is; Manny Pacquiao will not get a rematch in the near future because Floyd Mayweather will continue to make excuses.
