Report: Floyd Mayweather Says he ,d Give Manny Pacquiao a rematch

Published

CEQD2xUW8AAc17XAre you sitting down? Maybe you should be sitting down. Got a seat? Good.

Despite every assurance in the 60 hours since Floyd Mayweather made Manny Pacquiao look like a glorified sparring partner that there would not be a rematch between the two fighters and that Mayweather would retire in September, lo and behold, Mayweather has said he’s willing to give Pacquiao a rematch once he’s good and healthy following that shoulder surgery that will sideline him for 9-12 months.

I, for one, am shocked. I fully believed Mayweather would be able to walk away from the only thing he’s known since he was a pre-teen. I trusted him when he said he was done in September and that he’d never fight again because he wants to enjoy his money. His word, and the word of every boxing insider, that there wouldn’t be a rematch down the road? That word was bond.

But of course Mayweather wants a rematch. Money is most addictive substance on earth. Boxers can’t walk away; they’re like musicians, only with the added threat brain damage. Nothing that Floyd Mayweather or any boxer says should ever be taken with anything more than a grain of salt. Wait, no. What’s smaller that a grain of salt? An atom. Nothing a boxer says should ever be taken with anything more than an atom of belief.

But the good news is nobody’s going to buy the fight — which is likely to be sometimes around one year from now and will probably cost $109.95 if it happens — due to the historic backlash to the one Saturday night.

I’m kidding. We’re all suckers and we’ll be there again with our remote controls pressing a single button that puts money in that charlatan’s pocket yet again, then, one hour later, wondering why we fell for this circus ruse once more.

This is one of the most difficult career decisions I have had to take. It’s been an amazing 5 years journey, but after due consultation and extensive discussion with my family, I have decided it’s time for me to retire from the National team.

It’s has been an eventful and most memorable opportunity to serve my country with pride, passion and to contribute my quota to the development of our football, the memories would stay with me for a long time and I’m immensely grateful. It is now time to concentrate on Club football and give the younger players chance to learn and grow.

I would love to thank the NFF, coach Gernot Rohr for believing in me against all odds,to my teammates for their professionalism and team spirit without you guys I wouldn’t have achieved so much with this team.

To NIGERIAN football fans all over the world,I SAY THANK YOU, you were always there to cheer us on and our 12th players every time we step into the pitch. I will be watching and cheering the SUPER EAGLES from this side. THANK YOU…..signing OUT.
