The shoulder injury of Manny Pacquiao now appears real according to ESPN. And Pacquaio is said to be having surgery for a rotator cuff issue that would take up to a year to heal.
That means Pacquiao was a one armed man in the “Fight of the Century.” And I still had him beating Mayweather.
Fortunately for Mayweather, I’m not a judge.
But Mayweather apparently does not want his 0 in 48-0, besmirched.
He must have a re-match!
Floyd Mayweather texted @stephenasmith saying he’d be willing to give Manny Pacquiao a rematch.

I swore after Pac/Bradley I that I was done with this stuff. But apparently I couldn’t stay away.
But think about this scenario:
Mayweather fights for 49 in September and wins, takes time off, and comes back in a year for 50 against a healed-up Pacquiao, who will insist Mayweather fights in Asia, maybe in Manila for another “Thrilla.”
What do you think? is it time for the “Rematch of the Century”?
You got an extra C-note for the PPV?
Mayweather here calls Pacquiao “tough as a mother….”
A Mother’s Day greeting?
UPDATE ON LAWSUIT:
A class action suit filed in Federal Court in Las Vegas is asking for $5 million in damages for Pacquiao’s failure to disclose his injury.
Suit names as defendants Pacquiao, Top Rank’s Bob Arum, and Pacquaio aide Michael Koncz.
Two specific plaintiffs are named, but the suit could potentially include all those who paid to attend live or on pay-per-view, or those who even gambled on the fight.
