Manny Pacquiao Fought Bradley Like An Amateur, Says Mayweather

1

Floyd Mayweather wasn’t impressed with Manny Pacquiao’s April 12 decision win against Timothy Bradley. Mayweather was so unimpressed by the fight, in fact, that he said both Pacman and Bradley looked like amateurs.

"I think both fighters fought like amateurs," Mayweather said.  "I thought Pacquiao fought like an amateur also, and I wasn't pleased with his performance.  He got the victory the best way he knew how but I wasn't pleased with his performance at all."

Well then.

Mayweather then went into even more detail about Pacquiao, and said he notices a lack of pop in his punches.

"I don't see the same pop in Pacquiao's shots -- me, myself, I don't see the same snap in his shots," Mayweather said. "He's getting tired and he wasn't getting tired before.  So, I mean, I'm seeing something totally different.  Whereas me, I'm still sharp, I'm still smart, I'm not getting fatigued, I wasn't getting fatigued from the beginning. Those are the things that I see.  I don't know if you guys see it but that's what I see."

Of course, Mayweather’s words beg the question: if Pacquiao looks so weak, why not fight him? His response was as uninspiring as you’d expect.

“I'm seeing something totally different in Pacquiao, but still, that don't make me say, 'Yeah, I am going out there and fight him,'" he said. "Because he's with Bob Arum and I'm with Mayweather Promotions."
