Does anybody still believe Pacquiao can beat Mayweather?

1-IMG_6355By Babatis Banda: Looks like the twist and turns between these two boxers will never end. Floyd Mayweather Jr. initially had agreed to give Manny Pacquiao another go at him when he is fully recovered. It is a sad thing that Pacquiao had to go into the biggest fight of his career with an injury and dating back to 2008 according to Roach.

What is baffling though is that Pacquiao never showed any signs of discomfort during that fight with Floyd. Worse, Pacquiao and his team failed to disclose the injury prior to the fight and to me it indicates that he was fit and able to fight in that condition.

Arum says Pacquiao has had shoulder injury since 2008

1-04-3By Chris Williams: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says that Manny Pacquiao’s recent right shoulder problem isn’t a new injury that just surfaced for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight last Saturday night. The 83-year-old Arum claims that Pacquiao has had the injury to his right rotator cuff since his fight against Oscar De La Hoya seven long years ago in 2008.

Why Arum and Pacquiao chose this time for them to bring up the injury is unknown? You would think that Pacquiao and Arum could have mentioned the injury ages ago after a high point in Pacquiao’s career rather than after a loss.

Arum pleased with PPV numbers he’s seen for Mayweather-Pacquiao fight

1-MAYPAC-FIGHTNIGHT-TRAPPFOTOS-5304By Chris Williams: The final pay-per-view numbers for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. – Manny Pacquiao fight are expected to be released next week, but thus far Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum is happy with the numbers, calling them “breathtaking” according to

Photo of Pacquiao after his successful shoulder surgery

A photo posted by Mark Zambrano (@markzambrano) on

By Chris Williams: Manny Pacquiao’s shoulder surgery was a success on Wednesday, after his embarrassing one-sided loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. last Saturday night. Pacquiao was operated on by the well-known orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles, California to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. There’s no word if it was a full tear.
