Floyd Mayweather Is The Conquering Hero In The Fight Of The Century Against Manny Pacquiao In Las Vegas

Floyd Mayweather emerged victorious from the most lucrative fight in history, beating Manny Pacquiao via a wide unanimous decision in Las Vegas.

American Mayweather, 38, delivered a defensive masterclass against his Philippine rival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, making the necessary adjustments after only a few rounds before disappearing out of sight.

Mayweather, who added the WBO welterweight title to the WBC and WBA titles he already owned, was awarded the fight 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112 by the three judges.

With his victory, Mayweather also cemented his status as the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of his generation.

The five-weight world champion is now undefeated in 48 professional fights, stretching back 19 years.

Six-weight world champion Pacquiao, 36, falls to 57 wins, six losses and two draws.

Rival broadcasters Showtime and HBO joined forces for the first time since Lennox Lewis fought Mike Tyson in 2002 to show the fight, with Jimmy Lennon Jr and Michael Buffer sharing ring announcer duties.
A-listers in the 16,507 crowd included actors Clint Eastwood and Robert De Niro, singers Sting and Prince, and US tycoon Donald Trump.


Multi Grammy Award winner Jamie Foxx sang the American national anthem prior to the fighters entering the ring. So prized was a seat that many celebrities were even sat behind the press row.
Pacquiao began his ring walk at 20:45 Vegas time – to the strains of a song he recorded especially for the occasion – and was awarded a rapturous reception. Mayweather, on the other hand, was roundly booed, despite being effectively the house fighter.  

When it was time to rumble as always seems to be the case against Mayweather, Pacquiao couldn’t find that delicate balance between outright aggression, timed shots and retaining energy for the later rounds, all of which belonged to Mayweather, who began to dominate once he rebalanced and refocused his energies.

I take my hat off. Now I see why he’s one of the guys at the pinnacle.

  7. Another article in the uk bashing our genious fighter floyd mayweather read this.

    What is interesting is that most successful PPV fighters tend to be loved, feared or regarded as exciting – but Mayweather is none of these things. Nor is he overly popular, given the multiple cases of domestic violence against him. It cannot just be because he is a defensive genius. Pernell Whitaker – a four-weight world champion – was tricky yet he never quite flipped over into the mainstream.

    It is not Mayweather’s fault that he has outclassed so many of his opponents. But there are still challenges out there; ones that would prove his place in the pantheon mattered as much as his bank balance. A fight with Gennady Golovkin, the unbeaten WBA middleweight champion, who boasts detonators in his fists, would do the trick. But it will never happen; Mayweather is too cautious.

    So we are left with unanswerable questions. Is Mayweather really better than Robinson or Leonard were at welterweight?

    Here is my answer why dont you let one of your own fight gennady golovkin someone like say Ricky Hatton perhaps? or may you’re all TOO SCARED! Now personally you can all F***off!!!!!

  8. From last year till now they’ve been saying that floyd is running from the great pac man and how the pac man is going to beat floyd and whatever else. When floyd played around with pac man and won easily they are still not satisfied. Mayweather is a great boxer whether you want to admit it or not.

  11. Mayweather is a brilliant defensive boxer and Manny could not get to him. floyd should just pack it in now- beating golovkin isn’t going to make him better than Robinson or Armstrong to some people including myself but the fact he won his career defining fight while in third gear speaks volumes to his level of technical ability and boxing iq he has definitely sealed his name in the conversation and that is all that matters in truth

  14. Manny was said to be the one to lead the fight as his fist is larger than mayweather’s and he is two yrs younger and as people claimed more fit but faded when this fight was made, in fact he was going to be the one leading the early rounds. The fact is Mayweather made Manny look old, he could not get near him. You don’t have to like the man to understand he is an all-time great. Easily the best fighter since 1990 or before.
