Mayweather was running scared, Pacquiao was injured, they should have a rematch and all the rest. But that's not even going to happen either.

Nearly a decade of build-up only to feel unfulfilled.

Manny Pacquiao has had a bit of a dig at his victor by suggesting that Mayweather didn't fight him.

The Filipino didn't deny Money his win and he even admitted that he has employed similar conservative tactics in the past - but that Mayweather's were extreme.

"One of the best fighters, good. He's also fast. He really deserves his victory," Pac Man was quoted on Filipino website, Spin.

"[Mayweather didn't] so I did not watch my fight."

But it looks like it will be the only one he gets to watch after Mayweather shut the door on a rematch between the two, after initially suggesting to an ESPN reporter that he's be open to the idea.

“Did I text Stephen A. Smith and say I will fight him again? Yeah, but I change my mind,” he said on Showtime.

“At this particular time, no [I wouldn't fight him again], because he’s a sore loser and he’s a coward. If you lost, accept the loss and say, ‘Mayweather, you were the better fighter.'"
