Maybe he's talking just to talk, and maybe he's trying to get under Floyd Mayweather's skin, but Manny Pacquiao says he feels that Marcos Maidana won his September 13 rematch with Mayweather, which makes for one person who possibly has any clue what they were looking at to think that's the case:
"To me, Maidana won that fight. Mayweather's face and lips were swelling compared to Maidana's unblemished face," Pacquiao said.
Pacquiao also says that if Mayweather wants to fight him, he knows how to reach him, and that he wants the fight, and all that. We're almost certainly no closer now to Mayweather-Pacquiao than we've been since 2010, which is to say I'm guessing there's a 5% chance we'll see it in 2015. There's been about a 5% chance we'd see it every other year, too.
Anyway, Pacquiao faces Chris Algieri on November 22 in Macau, with HBO pay-per-view televising the fight.
