I tell ya!! I've never been this disappointed about a fight before. I knew heavyweight boxing was dull and boring but I though the lower weight classes still had a bit of excitement.
I'm really pissed off with this fight, it was too much of a hype. No wonder boxing is on the decline, real fans know the the sport is dead.
With the level anticipation and money attached to this fight, both fighters were supposed to put up a show no one would forget in a hurry. All the hallmarks if a great fight were missing; no knockdown, no moments which got people on the edge of their seats, no blood, no cuts, no swelling.. Nothing!! The cuts man on both side was on vacation, even that metal stuff used to massage swellings was never used. Both fighters came out looking pretty faced and they're going to have the guts to accept 9 figure cheques, especially floyd who takes home close to $200 mil for 36 mins of running around (more than most people will ever make in their lifetime)
This is the biggest fraud in boxing history.

Mayweather is an entertainer. Pacquao is a fighter, just see how the guy moves . Unfortunately for him, the money man had no interest in fighting. Much respect for payment.

We seriously need to bring back the good old days where boxers try to knock each other out. Not running and hugging each other.
Then they laugh while they both go the bank after the fight. We see more action in a amateur boxing match than the so called fight of the century. For those people who paid and expect to watch a great fight. Its understandable if you feel #$%$ off or disappointed. We just made two boxers a hundred million richer while we shake our heads.

Boxers are smart now they want to retire and enjoy their wealth not end up in a nursing home when they retire wearing pampers and not recognizing their families. If you think it is easy to put together 50 fights with another human being pounding your head like pounded yam in a mortar get in the ring and see have a go. To those who say he lacks power, well 20 KOs or TKOs out of 48 fights tells a very different story.Is it when he kills someone you will agree he has power?
Truth is many people who fancy themselves as pundits know little about boxing punditry. Technically Mayweather is one of the best boxers ever meaning he is unlikely to get beaten which of course makes for a less entertaining fight in some cases but he is there to win get paid and most importantly enjoy his pay in good health. I am sure none of his family will complain the fight was boring. Mayweather makes his defending look easy ,believe me it is not. Manny Pacquiao is a true champion and at that weight Probably no other person can beat Pacquiao so give Floyd his due. He threw more punches and landed more.
Anyone who thinks boxing has gone to the dogs can enrol his son at the nearest gym

Well, like Ali, Mayweather defeated everyone put in front of him, including future hall of famers - and made them look average. Despite not recording any loss.
Joe Calzaghe fought bums and washed up Roy Jones and Benard Hopkins. I'd even wager that Hopkins beat him, but he got the decision. He's no different from Rocky Marciano who fought bums and pensioners. Heck, he fought some of the bums an incredible six times. Can't compare him to Mayweather at all.
The Klitschko brothers are bums.

all4naija:Records in boxing are standardized.
Professional records are very separate or distinct from amateur records. Every one who has any idea about boxing know this. What next are we to start saying so and so recordes a lost fight to his big sister? Let us keep things real and honest

Got bored with that fight tho.. the 1st 2 fights had more sparks.. Nuff respect for the Insurance salesman who had 1week notice only and stayed strong till the last round.

This is computer/internet era bro. Nowadays, we calculate, computerize, and strategize before taking actions. In those days they fight for peanuts cos they got no other source of income likewise soccer, then they hardly buy a car talkless of getting a good home of their own so winning is paramount and the leeway to be successful. Ask yourself this simple truth, will you be quarter wealthy like Pacman not even Floyd and put your face to be condemned? Answer is NO, or Messi and C.Ronaldo and put your leg in tackle to condemn your future cos you wanna be a Hero. These fighters and players ain't fools, WIN, DRAW or LOSE they still make a whooping amount of $$$$$Millon$$$$$? Lets be realistic, gone are the days you use because of roasted snake fish to burn your hands.... There's an adage in Urhobo that says, 'A giant has to be brilliant so he can live long'. They're both successful and brilliant.
|Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by 50calibre(m): 6:50pm On May 04, 2015|
Looooool so Chris Eubank was a bum? Mikel Kessler was a bum? I give up!!
Going by your logic, Calzaghe also fought everyone put in front of him.
Mayweather fought a lot of bums, including a washed up De la Hoya.
Mayweather is not the greatest pound for pound fighter, at least not in my eye. Pacquiao's short reign of terror will remain longer in people's memory.
|Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by 50calibre(m): 7:03pm On May 04, 2015|
Boxing involves trading punches, fighter are paid shi*t load of money to beat each other up not run scared and win on points.
Strategy is key in boxing but the ultimate aim of every strategy should be to inflict punishment on the other fighter & then knock him out.
Gone are the days when fighters entered into the ring with intentions to knock the other fighter out and prove he's the better man. Now fighters step into the ring with intentions of pillow fighting for 12 rounds and then get paid more than an average person earns in a lifetime.
Fighter are paid that much because of the risk they take, you can't have it both ways. So if all you wanna do is strategise all day without actually fighting, then boxing is not the sport for you.

Then stop watching. these guys got 20+ KO before emerging champion. They ain't fighting to make you smile but fighting to entertain you and make their dough.
|Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by omonnakoda: 7:45pm On May 04, 2015|
Not all fighters are paid that much.Indeed the vast majority are not and many end up as bodyguards or bouncers. They do not take more risks than soldiers or policemen.Those that are are paid highly arebecause they have managed to con the mugs that pay by delaying obvious fights and making the public gag and beg for it. Just like the so called high class hooker who convinces her tricks that a night with her is worth $20000 or more. Yes that is how many of those pornstars actually make their money!
With Mayweather we cannot say the public do not know what they are paying for if after 47 fights if they don't then they must be really dumb. He gets paid more and more each time so the public must be on some masochistic trip because they keep coming back for more and paying more each time. People paid a lot of money to see goals in World Cup finals 1994, 2006,2010,2014 all went to extra time.
The fight may not have lived up to the expectations of some but those were mostly those who did not know what they were paying for those who knew got exactly what he always does as far as Mayweather is concerned,the "disappointment" if we can call it that was Manny failing to knock him out. Was Mayweather supposed to let that happen just to please everyone?

And how was Saturday's fight entertaining? Did you actually watch the fight? Are you even a boxing fan, and what do you know about boxing?
|Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by 50calibre(m): 9:36pm On May 04, 2015|
Any boxer in the top flight earns more than an average person earns in a year.
This fight generated so much money as a result of how long it took to make it happen. This is not like any other mayweather fight, this was his career defining fight against his arch nemesis who'd haunted him for years.
One wouldn't be blamed for expecting an exciting fight given the Mayweather doubters, the animosity & bad blood between the two fighters (which should be enough to make a good fight). Mayweather had the chance to cement his authority as the pound for pound king by winning emphatically but all he did was run around the ring all night and then walked home with a 9 figure check. That's a typical example of an undeserved pay.
I don't think you know what it means to not get your money's worth, I can bet my last penny that you didn't watch the fight & neither did you care about the fight to begin with.
Unfortunately for boxing fans like myself, who've waited 5 solid years for this fight, this was an abysmal showing. I'm not an old man but I'm old enough to have seen some super-fights in my time and I can say for sure that this fight was undeserving of the hype and money involved.
This is not about support for any fighter, I don't care who won or lost, it just wasn't an exciting fight.. period!!
What we saw Sunday morning wasn't a Pacquiao loss but a boxing loss.
Oh! Oh! And by the way, that your football analogy? It's lame. I can't even begin to tell you how lame it is.
|Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by omonnakoda: 10:12pm On May 04, 2015|
50calibre:Any professional sportsperson in the top flight earns more than average persons . This is equally true of actors, musicians, doctors and even prostitutes.
Getting money's worth is a subjective thing people are dissatisfied with air flights,tuition,restaurant meals, and all kinds of goods and services many others are also satisfied. No fight is deserving of hype and money execpt the market chooses to make it so. If you are so aggrieved why don't you write them a polite letter to ask for a refund. I don't know who you are and it is not my practice to exchange words like "lame" or gratuitous aggression with strangers. That is my default position generally. I thought it was a masterclass in the fine arts of boxing and I thoroughly enjoyed it!!
There can be no doubt that your father did not get his money's worth if he spent money schooling you. Clearly you have no manners and no self respect and that is why you think it is perfectly okay to open your dirty mouth and address me anyhow. I do not think your father's head is in the right place because if it was you would check very well before you start howling. Guy next time look very well if that is how you address others on NL in your life do not ever try that with me. Bastardd
|Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by 50calibre(m): 12:36am On May 05, 2015|
Shut up retar*d!! You didn't watch the fight, yet a boxing novice like you, thinks it's ok defend a mediocre performance just because you hear Mayweather fans doing the same? Do not be fooled, they know that performance was poor.
I'm not aggrieved, I'm disappointed because I believe to whom much is given, much is expected but of course I don't expect you to understand any of that, it's apparent you've never excelled at anything in life.
Your dad obviously had very low expectations of you, you're also a boy of low expectations but trying to knock someone else for having higher expectations is very lame and moronic of you.
You're simpleton, and I'm going to talk to you how I please so do yourself a favour and shut the fuc*k up!

I don't know anything about boxing oo, I didn't even watch cos I got black and white TV with no HDMI cable and more or so fuel scarcity but was able to read scorecards . I've already seen you like vulgar languages and love insulting peoples parents, thats really bad, I'm not in for that oo cos you are already peddling me. All I can tell you is Floyd won simple. You don't expect everything in life to go your way bro, ko possible. If you lose you lose admit it and forge ahead. Remember June 97' when Tyson bit Holyfield's ear, do you know how many people got feud cos of Tyson's act? Boxing is just a game in the next few years this will be forgotten. I really enjoyed the match tho and I bet Floyd wins 1st, 2nd and 3rd round and it worked out for me do you know how many odds is that uh? I later checked compubox and saw Floyd dominated in all categories.
Well, agreed the fight is boring to Pacmans fans but do you think if he won will it look boring? Funny world.
|Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by 50calibre(m): 11:21am On May 05, 2015|
You don't seem to understand what I'm saying and I don't think you will.
Yeah mayweather won the fight but it wasn't a sensational performance befitting of all the hype. That fight was actually termed "The fight of the century" looool what a joke.
Mayweather won the fight because the judges said he did (Pacquiao was never going to win a decision over mayweather in Vegas anyway) but a lot of boxing heads disagree, even Mayweather's father said it wasn't an impressive fight. All those punches mayweather landed must have been phantom punches because Pacquiao was never in trouble at any point in the fight and came out of the fight looking pretty-faced. So much for the fight of the century.
Pacquiao on the other hand was the agggressir throughout the fight and even landed more solid shots. Tyson-Holyfield was an epic fight, it was war, Holyfield was actually punishing tyson before the bitting incident. So not a good comparison here.
Well I'm done talking this fight, it's past tense now, lets look forward to the future. If Mayweather really wants to silence the critics, then Pacquiao deserves a rematch but if he's happy with that performance, then he can retire in peace.
