From ESPN.Com: Floyd Mayweather told ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith in a text Tuesday that he would be open to a rematch after Manny Pacquiao recovers from shoulder surgery to repair a tear in his rotator cuff.
“I will fight him in a year after his surgery,” Mayweather texted Smith on the heels of his unanimous decision over Pacquiao in the richest fight ever.
Manny Pacquiao, right, will have surgery this week to repair a “significant tear” of his right rotator cuff and will miss nine to 12 months.
In addition, Pacquiao could face a possible fine or suspension from Nevada boxing officials for failing to disclose the injury on a form prior to Friday’s weigh-in.
“It’s not just the fact he didn’t fill out the question completely, it was that he wasn’t honest and they didn’t tell us a month ago when he had the shoulder injury,” Nevada Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett said. “They’re not obligated to, but two hours before the fight they wanted a shot that’s a painkiller, in essence. That put us in a very precarious position.”
