Top ten worst excuses in boxing: Number Seven

We list the worst excuses fighters have given for poor performances

7. Shouldering the blame
Although not a complete fabrication, Manny Pacquiao’s excuse that he had aggravated a shoulder injury during his points defeat to Floyd Mayweather in their mega-fight in May was poorly received. He has since had surgery on the shoulder, confirming the legitimacy of the injury. However, the issue lies in the fact Manny did not bring up the injury before the fight, despite claiming it happened during training in preparation for Mayweather. Many felt short-changed after the lacklustre fight between the two, with Mayweather comfortably winning on all three scorecards.
