MTV asked Mayweather’s good friend 50 Cent for his opinion on it earlier this week, though, and he revealed that he doesn’t think it’s going to happen. And in addition to shooting down the idea of a rematch, 50 also threw a few jabs at Pacquiao for using his shoulder injury as an excuse after the first Mayweather/Pacquiao fight.
“I don’t think that there’s a rematch in order,” 50 said. “I think that we’ve seen fighters hurt themselves in the fight to the point that they gotta fight with one arm. And they don’t necessarily create the rematch because he threw his arm out. When he says that he was hurt, I didn’t see anything that would make you think that he was hurt prior to the actual fight or during the fight…He wasn’t throwing one hand more often than the other.”
Later in the interview, 50 also mentioned that the demand for a rematch simply isn’t high enough to warrant one.
“I don’t think with the response that [Mayweather] got from the actual fight, wasn’t a real positive response following it,” he said. “People weren’t jumping up and down like, You gotta see it again.”
