Former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson tweeted, ‘We waited 5 years for that… #underwhelmed #MayPac.’ My sentiments exactly. This was the most overhyped and marketed fight in history. But that is how Mayweather Promotions operates. Mayweather promotes his own fights. He said he is a greater fighter than Mohammed Ali. Anyone who hears someone say that is going to watch his fight. But that is why he is the Money Man. He has no education, he is not a heavyweight but he has grossed half a billion US dollars in his career and topped the Forbes list as the highest-paid athlete of the year up to last year, so he must be doing something right. In his post fight interviews he talks about all the cars and money he has and how he can retire right now. He doesn’t want to wait until he is 40. He wants to retire with all his faculties in tact. Was this why he was running from Pac-Man in the ring or giving hugs? Ok so he did what he had to do to win the fight. Fact is he won the fight. He fought smart round for round, only allowing Pacquiao to win about 3 of the 12 rounds. The truth of the matter is there is no other fighter as good or as tactical as him in his generation at the moment and he knows it. He knows why he ran from this fight for 5 years. Timing, fear and a bigger pay day. About $100 million US in under 60 minutes. Why would he care if persons accused him of running from the fight. Money! Red cars for Las Vegas, White for LA, Yellow for another place. Whatever colour is for where, Money! He’s the Money Man. He claimed Manny was doping, which put the pressure on Manny to get or stay clean even if he was not doping in the first place, as he was being watched closely. Coincidentally, Manny had a high rate of knock outs, which has been no more since Mayweather’s accusation. However Pacquiao has never failed a drug test. Mayweather is also going for a record before he retires. Perhaps 50-0? His win over Pacquiao last Saturday night brought him to 48 wins. There are talks that he may have one more fight this September, maybe his last fight. So let’s say he retires at 49-0 or 50-0. Great. He is a good boxer. The best? Hell no. Even though Mayweather is undefeated, let us remind ourselves of the stats. The Greatest, Ali had 56 wins, 5 losses and 37 wins by KO. The Baddest Man on the Planet, Mike Tyson had 50 wins, 6 losses (2 no contests) and 44 wins by KO! Remember people used to pray Mike’s fight would go past the 2nd round when they paid their money to watch it. Mayfeather, oops Mayweather, who is not even close to a heavyweight has only 26 wins by KO.

Mayweather won the contest by a unanimous decision, with two judges scoring it 116–112 and the other 118–110. However, Pacquiao received more crowd reaction as he threw way more punches than Mayweather, but hardly any of them landed. So Pac-Man was not a sore loser when interviewed immediately after the fight saying he thought he won, he was really convinced he won most of those rounds hence why he was grinning off his face at the end of some of the earlier rounds. Of course, after review at his hotel he reported that he saw there is no way he won the fight.

Why did Beyonce leave Solange? Should have put her in the ring. Not even an uppercut from Mayweather?! If Mayweather is so hype, he should have knocked out Pacquiao by the 5th or even the 8th round. Give us some excitement. There were probably only 2 or 3 moments that Mayweather landed hard punches, which stimulated any kind of reaction from viewers. Any time Pac-Man had him against the ropes or got any kind of rhythm with landing punches he literally started to run or hug him. What a coward. Pay-Per-Snooze according to USA Today. At the end of the day people will not remember or rate an athlete for the cars they drive or money they made, but by their performance and how we were entertained. Personality also plays a big part and the majority of the public dislikes Mayweather’s arrogance. In this day and age with the use of heavy social media, persons that had no interest in boxing and did not watch the fight will also see that the fight was disappointing. Mayweather won, but it was boring. He surely didn’t impress Suga. Let us see if he can quit competing with Barney for free hugs and win by KO before retirement.
