    Mayweather vs Pacqiao

    IMO, the fight should be called Hype of the Century instead.

    Credit to Pacman for taking the fight to Mayweather. He had to due to his shorter height and reach. Reminiscent of Frazier vs Ali. Mayweather on the other hand is contend to dance around, soak up the pressure and counter punch until the end of Round 12 to retain his title and collect the bounty. He didn't really try.

    From the start I figured if it is going to be a close fight and comes down to points then Mayweather will win. The three bloody Judges are Americans. For Pacqiao to win he need to do something extraordinary like knocking down Mayweather which he did not manage to. Since I did not pay USD10k for a ringside seat I would not complaint too much on the lack of entertainment value.

    Nevertheless it was a good payday for both fighters for 36 minutes of "hard" work.

    Sorry, it should be Pacquiao. I was typing from memory.

    Its not a heavyweight class which would have been more thrilling... the only thrilling fight you can see for such weight / class is when that crazy Prince Naseem fights....

    I find boxing is not fit as a sport event in present civilized society..

    Two masculine men exchange punches until one of them injured certainly got nothing to do with sport..

    It is a business, a bloody one similar to watching two fierce dogs fighting, or two roosters fighting and surrounded with spectators hungry to see blood..

    I guess boxing is popular as it is reminiscent of humanís barbaric past and kind of recall the animal instinct of human being..

    Pacquiao lost the match but Mayweather won the dance competition.
