Mayweather vs. Pacquiao highlights: Why fight of the century was all about money

It was a damp squib and not worth the dollars that people had hoped it to be. Notwithstanding their standing in the sport called boxing, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was just a showpiece and nothing else.

They are the biggest names in the boxing and for the last six years almost every boxing fan was eager to see them in the ring. But when they finally entered after years of suspense, they came up with a farce.

After being squarely beaten by Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao claimed that he had suffered a shoulder injury a few weeks earlier and so he couldn’t use his right hand to the devastating effect.

This shows that Manny Pacquiao was actually not sincere and he was only looking at the millions that he would be making by fighting Mayweather than the boxing fans who were spending thousands of dollars. At least seventeen thousand people spend thousands of dollars each to be able to watch a fight that was actually not.

If Manny was sincere, as many have claimed he is, he should return the money to the boxing fans and apologies to the boxing world.

In the meantime Floyd Mayweather Jr. has proved himself as the best boxer of our generation. There is no doubt about it. Now he has left no doubt as far as his superiority over Manny Pacquiao is concerned regardless of the scorecards or Mayweather’s tactics.

Manny is finished. His career has ended and he has pocketed more than a million dollar from this fight. He doesn’t need to fight anyone else.

Now everyone seems to be wondering as to who will be the last fighter to face Mayweather. A report says, “Amir Khan has fought much more often in the US than Brook has, but if Floyd is sticking to his schedule and wants to cap his career off in September then Ramadan will put paid to that. Amir Khan–a Muslim–will not be able to get ready by the time Floyd’s next free diary date comes up, and as much as Khan has begged for the fight he isn’t enough of a star or draw that Floyd is going to change his plans to fight him”. So Amir Khan will not get his prized fight as he has been dreaming after Mayweather made it amply clear that he will fight just one this year and hang his boots.
