Pacquiao surgery looks set to end hopes of Mayweather rematch

Matt Stanger

After Saturday’s underwhelming ‘Fight of the Century’, it might not come as a huge disappointment that the chances of a rematch are looking slim.

Manny Pacquiao complained of a shoulder injury following his points defeat to Floyd Mayweather, and it turns out the Filipino wasn’t just looking for an excuse.

According to reports, Pacquiao is now set to undergo surgery on a torn rotator cuff, which will take nine to 12 months to fully heal.

“We have an MRI scan that confirms he has a rotator cuff tear. He has a significant tear,” orthopedic surgeon Neal ElAttrache told

With Mayweather planning one more fight in September before retiring, it looks as though Pac-Man’s hopes of another crack at the champion are over.
