According to The Cambodia Daily newspaper, Hun Sen in a speech Monday criticized the match's result, saying that Mayweather only won as it was assessed solely by U.S. judges, on U.S. ground. No further comments beyond the wager's amount were given in the report.
At the ceremony of National Road 55, in Pursat Province, Mr Hun Sen, commented on how different each boxer's techniques was, with Mayweather "just running around – blocking and avoiding" whilst Pacquiao remained in fighting spirit by throwing punches continuously.
As a result, Mr Hun Sen said he would not pay up, after making the $5,000 bet on Pacquiao to win, suggesting a rematch on fair ground – China – should take place.
"Now if we are talking about yesterday's fight, I owe you, but I will not pay."
"Pacquiao doesn't need to get disappointed because it's an injustice created by judges," he said. "If I were Floyd, I would consider (the match) a draw," Mr Hun Sen added, according to the Cambodian news source.
