Manny Pacquiao is about to speak.
“I did my best, but my best wasn’t good enough,” said Pacquiao. “I’m happy. I fought a good fight. I thought I won, but I’m going back to my hotel to see what’s happening. I’m want to thank God for everything he’s done for us.
I’m very proud of Manny.” said Freddie Roach, Manny’s trainer. “I thought Manny fought a good fight. We’d love to do it again. Hopefully that’s in the future.”
Manny is now answering questions.
“It’s been two weeks I didn’t train good because I could not use my right hand,” referring to an injuring to his shoulders that occurred during training camp. One week before the fight, my shoulder was getting better and better. At least I could use it.”
Manny revealed he asked the boxing commission for permission to get an injection, but the permission was denied.
He said he had to skip his training for a couple of days due to his injury.
Roach said at one time they had thought about postponing the fight, but as time went on the shoulder was better and they thought the progress was good enough and that’s why they stayed with the fight.
“The fight is still good. But the thing is what we want to do we could not do because of my shoulder.”
On Mayweather, “He’s fast, he’s a good fighter. Give credit to him.”
He said he had to back off with combinations because his shoulder hurt.
“The lost doesn’t bother me that much because I fought a good fight. Even though I hurt my shoulder, I didn’t complain.”
PacMan said he hurt Floyd three or four times.
“He’s a tough competitor,” said Mayweather after the fight. “I’m just very grateful I won the match. From the opening bell. We both are smart fighters. Manny Pacquiao is a smarter fighter than I thought.”
“My dad wanted me to do more,” referring to Floyd Sr, his coach. “I felt in my heart I was winning. My dad wanted me to throw more combinations.”
As for his history with domestic abuse, Mayweather said “Only God can judge me when all is said and done. Only God can forgive.”
Despite defeat, Pinoy Pride still strong.
Manny, I'm so proud of you 🇵🇭🙏❤️ #PinoyPride FOREVER!!!!!! You brought the fight to him 🙂
