Manny Pacquiao blames shoulder for defeat in fight of the century

A dejected Manny Pacquiao has appeared before the world’s media following his bitter defeat to Floyd Mayweather in the fight of the century in front of a star-studded crowd in Las Vegas.

A crestfallen Manny Pacquiao has told the world’s media he lost the fight of the century to Floyd Mayweather because a shoulder injury left him unable to use his right hand.

It is estimated a worldwide audience of 400million – including thousands of people in Pacquiao’s hometown – tuned in to watch American Mayweather earn victory with a unanimous points decision in front of a star-studded crowd in Las Vegas.

Mayweather stands to pocket upwards of $180million from the super fight, while Pacquiao will take home around $120million.

After a build-up of almost five years, the pair took to the ring at the MGM Grand on Saturday night and battled through a closely-fought 12 rounds, with little separating them.

But it was the American who came out on top at the end of the multi-million dollar spectacle – retaining his undefeated record in front of a host of celebrities including Jay Z, Beyonce, Bradley Cooper, Mark Wahlberg and Donald Trump.

The beaten Filipino, 36, has since blamed his defeat on a shoulder injury and said he wanted to have an injection before the fight but the Nevada Athletic Commission refused.
