Floyd Mayweather has hit out at Manny Pacquiao again. This time however, Floyd Mayweather has attacked Pacquiao by refusing to accept his win over Timothy Bradley.

Pacquiao defeated Bradley by winning an unanimous decision on Saturday. But the retired Floyd Mayweather thinks that the third rematch between Pacquiao and Bradley was a draw.

A source close to Mayweather revealed the news to ESPN.

“And according to a person privy to the conversation, Mayweather told Bradley he thought the fight was much closer than the official scorecards — all three judges had Pacquiao winning 116-110. In fact, Mayweather told Bradley his own scorecard had the fight a draw,” the source said.

“‘Go home and watch the replay with the sound off,’ Mayweather is said to have told Bradley, indicating he believed the raucously pro-Pacquiao crowd had influenced the judges. … Mayweather, who outpointed Pacquiao in the most lucrative prizefight in history last May, told Bradley he appeared to be a much improved fighter and encouraged him to continue his career.”

The source also revealed that Mayweather asked Bradley’s camp to delay a routine post-fight hospital trip so that he could pay Bradley a visit.

“There was no theatrics, he spoke very quietly and seriously to Timmy. He was very complimentary and very classy,” the source added.

Manny Pacquiao who announced his retirement from the sport after his Saturday’s victory had ‘Fight of the Century’ against Floyd Mayweather in May 2015, but lost it. Soon after, Mayweather announced his retirement and since then has been leading an extravagant life.

More recently, Mayweather slammed Pacquiao over the latter’s remarks on gay people. He asked Pacquiao to stop throwing shade at gay people.

“I think we all should stay positive. We should let people live their lives the way they want to live their lives. To each his own,” Mayweather said.
