    This is getting as scripted as one of Howard's embedded ads, YouPorn Boff:

    Manny Pacquiao Injury Update: Pac-Man to Undergo Surgery for Tear in Shoulder

    The shoulder injury Manny Pacquiao was dealing with during his unanimous-decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Saturday was evidently serious.

    Dan Rafael of ESPN.com reported Monday that Pacquiao will undergo surgery to repair a torn right rotator cuff:

    Breaking news: Pacquiao to have shoulder surgery for "significant tear" in his right rotator cuff, according to Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

    — Dan Rafael (@danrafaelespn) May 5, 2015
    Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times added further details on Pacquiao's timeline to return to the ring:

    Manny Pacquiao will undergo surgery on his right shoulder for a rotator cuff tear this week on LA and be out 4-6 months, his advisor reports

    — Lance Pugmire (@latimespugmire) May 5, 2015
    However, Rafael reported that the recovery time was closer to 9-to-12 months.

    "It's part of the game," Pacquiao said of his injury after the fight Saturday, per ESPN.com news services. "I don't want to make alibis or complain or anything...[but] it's hard to fight one-handed."

    The ESPN.com report mentions promoter Bob Arum, who indicated that Pacquiao hurt himself sometime after mid-March.

    Matt Moscona of ESPN Radio Baton Rouge weighed in on the situation:

    So Pacquiao was fighting with a torn rotator cuff. That guarantees a post-surgery rematch, right? #tellmewhowins

    — Matt Moscona (@MattMoscona) May 5, 2015
    Taking the significant pain Pacquiao had to be fighting through into account and how he was denied the request to take anti-inflammatory medication prior to the fight, it diminishes Mayweather's win.

    It took long enough for two of the best boxers in recent memory to meet in the ring. Although a rematch seems far-fetched, the adversity Pacquiao was facing may indeed warrant a second fight with Mayweather, whose supreme defense and tactical brilliance were too much for Pacquiao in their first encounter.​

    He needs attitude surgery to repair whatever made him act like a whiny beeitch after he lost

    Must make every one feel real good, they paid premium money for a fighter with a bad wing. What a rip off, glad I don't give a shit.

    I couldn't have cared less about this fight. I didn't even know what happened till Monday morning. But I think it's hilarious that he obviously shouldn't have fought because of the injury, but everyone involved was so worried about the payday and the repercussions of having to cancel that he basically went out there knowing he had no chance. And everyone in the ring knew exactly what the situation was, too. Probably why Mayweather was spending a bunch of time running around the ring. Don't think he didn't dial it back so it wasn't a blowout. Gotta keep the public interested in a rematch, right??

    Anyone that spent a penny on the fight was duped. Ha.
