Top five random pre-fight disputes

Sean Ellis looks at five humorous pre-fight arguments

1 – #ShoulderGate

After the richest fight in boxing history, Manny Pacquiao admitted to the world’s media, that he had entered the ring against Floyd Mayweather with a shoulder injury. In pre-fight medicals, the Filipino had failed to officially disclose any details suggesting any kind of injury. However, days after the mega-fight, Pacman went under the knife as surgeons repaired a torn rotator cuff. At the time, promotor Bob Arum said: “Manny Pacquiao has had a torn rotator cuff since 2008. Generally if it ticks up in training, you rest it for a couple of days and its fine,” He added. “Unfortunately he reinjured the shoulder at the end of the fourth round and wasn’t as effective with his right-hand after that point as he had been before. That’s the whole story”.
