Manny Pacquiao lost to Juan Manuel Marquez on Saturday night. Okay, okay, so "lost" is a bit of an understatement. In actuality, he got knocked the $^%& out. Just check out the photo of him down on the canvas in the thumbnails above.
With that in mind, you'd expect to hear Floyd Mayweather doing a bunch of gloating right now. But, surprisingly, Money May had some nice things to say about Pacquiao and Marquez when he was asked about the fight yesterday, which he admitted he had not seen yet.
"Things happen," he said. "You live and you learn. The only thing [Pacquiao] can do is rejuvenate himself and bounce back like a true champion. Marquez is a true champion, Manny Pacquiao is a true champion, both of them went out there and put on a good performance, and that's a good thing for the sport of boxing. I wish Pacquiao nothing but the best. I wish that he can bounce back and he can recoup from this…I feel bad for him, honestly. I really feel bad for him. There's a difference in the ways you can get knocked out. See, when a guy gets knocked out and he can get up, they sit him on his stool, they rub his back, he go home and ice himself, you know, he go to the hospital and get checked out and he's okay, that's one thing. But, when you gotta wake a guy up with smelling salt and he got a concussion and he gotta go to the hospital overnight, that's crucial. I mean, that's close to death."
Er, okay. So, everything that Mayweather said wasn't nice. A few of those comments sounded like jabs. But, still: Pacman just took the worst L of his life. So, we're glad that Mayweather didn't really use it as an opportunity to kick him while he was down.
