HBO Boxing's long-time unofficial judge Harold Lederman believes there will be an entirely different scenario if a rematch between Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and retired undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. does happen.
Mayweather and Pacquiao finally met each other inside the boxing ring last May 2nd, after five years of failed negotiations. It was, however, met by disappointment from fans who paid $100 for pay-per-view, as Mayweather practically dominated the entire 12 rounds and 36 minutes of action.
After the fight, it was revealed that Pacquiao was suffering from a right shoulder injury, a torn rotator cuff to be exact. And in an interview with David P. Griesman for Boxingscene, the 76-year-old Lederman says a healthier "Pacman" could have done a lot more against Mayweather that night. more >>
