Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao might not be ready to put down his gloves just yet. At 36 years old, he is recovering from a right shoulder injury that he suffered before his highly anticipated fight against Floyd Mayweather May 2. He will wait until his injury is healed before making a final decision, he said in an announcement Tuesday, according to Filipino news station ABS-CBN.

The star boxer spoke at a welcome reception. As he entered the event, he had security guards protecting his wounded shoulder, the news station tweeted. Pacquiao thanked everyone who watched his Las Vegas fight and his Filipino fans for supporting him.

Pacquiao added that he would like a rematch with Mayweather and lamented that he should have fought “more aggressive” against the reigning champion. But a rematch is unlikely. Mayweather, 38, announced he has one more fight in him before he himself retires.

"My last fight is in September, then it's time for me to hang it up," he said after what has been dubbed the "Fight of the Century." "You know, I'm almost 40 years old now, I've been in the sport 19 years, I've been world champion for 18 years, and I'm truly, truly thankful and I'm blessed."

Mayweather praised Pacquiao after the fight and called him a “hell of a fighter.” He added: "I tip my hat off to Manny Pacquiao, now I see why he's one of the guys that's at the pinnacle in the sport of boxing."

But the warm sentiments didn’t last long. After Pacquiao came forward with his injury, Mayweather told Jim Gray during an interview that he didn’t notice anything wrong with Pacquiao's shoulder during their bout. “He was fast. His left hand was fast. His right hand was fast, and he was throwing them both fast and strong,” Mayweather said. “He lost. He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.”
