The hurricane of drama that followed the Mayweather vs. Pacquio fight was almost expected, as these things never end on a good note.

Aside from the numerous lawsuits, Pacquiao had exposed a serious injury at the post fight press conference, stating that he had to fight with an injured shoulder, limiting his abilities in the ring. At first it seemed like that was his only announcement following the bout, which in itself is a very powerful statement.

The result almost seemed like an attempt to diminish Mayweather’s victory, which Floyd did not take lightly. But after all was said and done, now Pacquiao has gone one step closer, claiming that after rewatching the fight, he is convinced that he won the fight; with one bad shoulder.

“I’ve seen the fight over and over and I feel that I won seven (rounds) to five (rounds for Mayweather),” claimed Pacquiao in an interview with Tempo Sports.

While so many had tried their very best and failed, supposedly Manny Pacquiao had done it with one bad shoulder, and all three judges being wrong. One judge had scored the fight 118-110, while the two scored it 116-112, all in Mayweather’s favor.

Does this mean that with a good shoulder Pacquaio could potentially dominate in a rematch, if one ever takes place? There is only one way to find out now, isn’t there?
