Floyd Mayweathe Win the ‘fight of the century’ against all time great Manny Pacquiao before 30 mints ago. Warm words and hugs between the fighters at the end. Cheers for Manny, boos for Floyd. Unanimous decision for Floyd Mayweathe. Manny accepts it with grace and class.
The discussion on the TV is now switching to whether Mayweather is the greatest of all time. Undefeated, having beaten every opponent out there. It’s easy to make a case that the answer is yes.
Here’s Manny Pacquiao:
It was a good fight. I got him many times. I saw the punches. I thought I won the fight. He is moving around, it is not easy to throw a lot of punches. I can handle his power. He is not strong like some others. He’s not bigger than me, the size doesn’t matter, I have fought bigger guys.
Obnoxious interviewer, I thought. “Well we at ringside all thhought the judges got it right.” Come on mate. He’s just lost a fight.
Floyd Mayweather speaking, to a solid chorus of boos:
First off, I want to thank God. I want to think all the fans around the world. This was a hell of a fight. I take my hat off to Manny Pacquiao, now I see why he is one of the guys at the pinacle of boxing. I am truly blessed. Manny Pacquaio is truly blessed. I am a calculating fighter. He is a tough competitor. I had to take my time with him. My last fight is in September.
