Floyd Mayweather VS Manny Pacquiaoย 

This was supposed to be the sort of fight that stimulates conversation from people who rarely speak of boxing, and it was supposed to catch the eyes of those who almost never watch the sport. It was supposed to be the crossover-ist (YES, IT’S A WORD, no need to look it up) of crossover fights. And for those who think I’m exaggerating obviously don’t know much about the fighters, so here’s a glimpse on both fighters and why this was ”supposed” to be the fight of the century.

Here are 2 things to know about Floyd Mayweather (The Winner):

1-He’s undefeated as a professional with a record of 26 KO’S, his last loss was a controversial decision in the semifinal round of the 1996 Olympics.

2-He has been widely considered the number one ”pound – for – pound” boxer in the world for the past 10 years, boxers only face opponents in similar weight classes, so the ”Pound – for – pound” is a subjective measure of how good of a boxer he truly is.

At the end of the day Mayweather won by his infamous defense mechanism, and that pissed people off, People paid a lot of money to see a boxing match between 2 boxers, only one of them boxed. Just because you avoid losing doesn’t mean you win.
