The most anticipated fight of the decade and the richest bout of all time has finally been concluded, with all the hype and anticipation we can now take a breather while the champ celebrates. Floyd Mayweather Jr. beat Manny Pacquiao in a unanimous decision. Which means he still remains Undefeated!
Pacquiao was the more aggressive fighter, and thrilled the heavily pro-Manny crowd in the middle rounds with a few left hands to Mayweather’s jaw. But ultimately Mayweather’s legendary defense was too good, and he took control of the fight in the latter rounds.
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.
Here’s Floyd Mayweather speaking, to a solid chorus of boos: First off, I want to thank God. I want to thank 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.
