Bro, its not all about the punches you throw... PacMan attacks violently but 75% of his punches were either blocked or waived while up to 60% of May punches hits the target. The response from the crowd was due to May arrogant in opposition to PacMan's friendly look. Also May disses 50c on IG some days ago and make more enemy for himself. Truth be told, he defend very well and throw more better punches than PacMan. Fact is PacMac is a very good fighter with attacking philosophy while May is better in defending and throw better punches that hit the target. This cannot be the fight of the century and the match does not even live up to the hype tho.
agreed bro! @bolded it does atall

What!! Mayweather was on the back foot all day long with Pacquiao chasing him around the ring like a little kid. Mayweather landed decent shots and so did Pacquiao... It's just that his volume of punches didn't match that of Mayweather.

Of course I blame Pacquiao because he lost the fight. Mayweather played his part perfectly and won. Pacquiao actually showed some good defences yesterday despite the reach disadvantage but I blame him for not being much more aggressive. He shouldn't have allowed floyd maintain his distance from him, this is why he lost. He should have found a way to get inside and stay there.

Floyd thinks every move through before executing. Don't give him time to think, stay on him like a fly, forget landing on his head, he protects it so much, throw body shots to soften him up and when he starts dropping is arms, bang!! To his head.

Tyson's style is the answer to floyd. watch Tyson V Tyrell Biggs, you'd see how effective it is.

There's Internet everywhere now, your kids will watch footages from various eras and tell you this fight was shi*t. grin

I honestly don't see any difference between Floyd and W Klitschko.. If you can see any difference, I'm listening.

Lol. Yes, on back foot while throwing and landing those crisp left hooks and straight right on Pacman's face. grin The Midget was more confused than a muthaphucka. So scared he couldn't even throw any flurry of those awkward punches. Shiit got real and hot in there lol. Never bet against the champ, man. grin

Mayweather will negate Tyson's style with his supreme awareness and ring intelligence. He's the best we have ever seen when it comes to imposing his will on boxers. Just take a look at how he made Manny and all the other 47 other fighters before him look stupid? That's greatness right there.

Just as I learned everything I know about sports from my pops - my kids will be privileged to understand the greatness and ring genius of Mayweather from their pops. Intelligence is always superior to being crude with brute force.

W Klitschko is a bum in a dead heavyweight era. He doesn't have the awareness, ring intelligence, footwork, supreme defensive mechanics, and counter-punching ability of Mayweather. A washed up Lennox Lewis destroyed his brother - any decent heavyweight fighter from the 90s and early noughties will knock his ar.se out in 5 rounds lol.

Pound for pound means best boxer in boxing - all weight classes included, not brawling. grin

So, who in boxing is better than Mayweather?

Nah, Mayweather isn't just Chelsea - he fought like Chelsea and Barca in one, while Pacman fought like Man City. grin

Maybe it's my fault; perhaps I rated Mayweather too highly.
How anyone can say Mayweather won this fight on the skill of his boxing could not be further than the truth. If he is such a great "boxer", why whenever Pacquiao was unleashing an attack why did he not "Box" his way out of trouble? instead of using last ditch tactics like grabbing and holding opponents, or failing that, to simply just run away. The only people who hit and run away are cowards.
I think Mayweather chose his fighting technique of evasive, defensive wrestling with the occasional jab is because if he was drawn into an actual toe to toe boxing match, he would probably lose. People might think that's untrue and he would have won by doing that anyway......so why didn't he?
People paid a lot of money to see a boxing match between two boxers. Only one of them boxed. Just because you avoid losing doesn't mean you win.
Maybe it's my fault; perhaps I rated Pacquiao too lowly.

Guys! Guys!! I know boxing is about intelligence but lets not forget it's also a brute sport. If you want to see just intelligence at work, then go watch the chess masters. I wanna see blood, sweat, and cut.

Have you ever wondered why boxing isn't really popular again?

Watch this fight below and tell me, you wouldn't pass pick this over se*x

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VI-M9Yw-28

Please compare this to last night'a fight, and tell me which would you have loved to pay to see. If you answer is yesterday's fight then I guess we have different ideas of what boxing is.




Much relief for my frustrations over this Pac & Floyd fight. These are the guys that deserved to take home the pay of today's fight.

Jumpy Floyd is damn annoying!

Darn!! Just skimmed through a few websites and twitter, and it seems the hate against Mayweather, especially the media, has more to do with race (like Mayweather has always alluded to) than his boxing style. Folks just hide it behind all the nonsense about domestic violence. Too many N-word flying all over cyberspace just cos he won a fight.

This phucked world hates seeing a successful black man come from nothing, to dominate everything - especially one with a chip on his shoulder and a non-conformist. They fear confident, brash, proud, and extremely rich black men who don't play by their rules.

The only ones they like are the ones who have to beg them for every, or play by their rules.

Phuck 'em - more Mayweathers are coming with this generation and the next one, and you'll have to live with. No PC - just highly educated and extremely intelligent real muthaphuckas who don't give a phuck and won't conform to no darn status quo. We're coming!

Shalom.

Most white people are just jealous, insecure wretched pieces of sh.it. The double standards they have are ridiculous. Hockey players are some of the most arrogant people on the planet, yet they get a pass. If a white athlete shows high confidence, he's seen as an alpha male. If a black athlete does the same thing, he's branded as a "thug".

Ali's self proclaimed himself the greatest, and he very well lived up to it. He was a champion during something that was arguably the toughest era in boxing history, having to fight his way past some of toughest motherfuc*kers in the business. He defied so many odds to become champion three times. What has mayweather done?

Unbeaten record doesn't make a fighter great, Joe Calzaghe retired with an unbeaten record (with a higher number of KOs than Floyd) does that make him the greatest?

I disagree on Wladimir Klitschko, as boring as I find him, I've got to admit he's a professor of jabs. I don't know how you'd say he's a bum when he hasn't lost a fight (nor came close to losing a fight since 2005). Every opponent he's faced has been forced to eat those robotic jabs of his for 12 rounds (including Nigeria's Samuel peters). The guy is even more efficient that floyd.

Vitali on the other hand, is a tougher fighter with a granite chin, he's never been down in his career. How could you say Lewis destroyed him when he was leading on all scorecards? He was a ministering punishment to lewis, barring a cut to the eye, he could have defeated Lewis. Lewis knew what could have happened that's why instead of granting him a rematch, he quickly retired and relinquished the belt.

As a longlife boxing fan... Worst fight I've seen.... Horrible.
This was supposed to save boxing? All it did was make a spectacle of it with the insane prices and celebrities and ended up turning away prospective new boxing fans. Boxing is FIGHTING.

Not outpointing and running. That's what Olympics and being an Amateur are all about. Both men left without a mark on their faces. All paq did was smile like a politician and May ran away.

Both should retire, that "fight" was a disgrace.
