Here's a newsflash for you: Floyd Mayweather isn't happy with Manny Pacquiao. I know, I know, this is hardly news to most people. But the fact of the matter is that despite all of the years or agonizing negotiations and finger-pointing, there was never actually any personal animosity between Floyd and Manny -- at least until now.

It's being reported by multiple outlets that Floyd Mayweather is really pissed about Pacquiao's attitude and disposition ever since losing the megafight last Saturday. He's so mad that he's now saying he's changed his mind and decided that he won't give Pacquiao a rematch for being such a sore loser. In particular, Floyd's main gripe is that he feels his performance is being largely undermined and discredited. Floyd even took to social media yesterday to say that he predicted this all would happen years ago.

Floyd's irritation has risen to the point where he's felt the need to have a sit down with Jim Gray to discuss his reaction to all the noise that's been flying around the past few days. It's presumed that Showtime will air this interview during "Inside Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: Epilogue," which will follow a replay of the fight tomorrow at 9 p.m EST.

So tell me fans, was Floyd right all along that people would discredit his win over Pacquiao? Is he in a no-win situation here? Should he even entertain a rematch with Pacquiao -- and better yet -- does he have anything to gain from a rematch (aside from a paycheck)?
