Manny Pacquiao, 36, said he entered the fight with an injured shoulder, a claim that Floyd Mayweather’s camp vehemently refuted after the result.

His decision not to disclose the injury to the Nevada State Athletic Commission – which kept him from getting a cortisone shot the night of the fight – may lead to a fine and suspension, with some filing lawsuits against him, alleging fraud.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who has operated on Tom Brady and Kobe Bryant in the past, conducted the 90-minute operation on Manny Pacquiao’s rotator cuff, which was significantly torn.

Manny Pacquiao moved to 57-6-2 with the loss. Already an active member of the Philippines House of Representatives, some have speculated that the champion could become a presidential candidate.

Floyd Mayweather says he would be willing to fight Manny Pacquiao after he is recovered.
