I will make this pretty short.. I don’t know how many people actually watched the fight as I know cable companies were having problems all over the country, but the way I see it.. Manny Pacquiao won the fight on Saturday. I had no interest in either guy to win as I am not a boxing fan nor have I ever been, but since we found a place to watch the match.. Then why not?
I am not sure what fight everyone else saw, but the one I watched I saw Pacquiao throw a lot of punches and actually was trying to fight.. Meanwhile Mayweather just wanted to hug him and squeeze him and call him George.. It was aggravating. Your job is to fight.. Get in the ring and kick ass.. I realize there is a strategy etc etc.. But come on.. This is the biggest reason I do not like boxing they spend 90% of the time dancing around that when one guy actually ands a hit the crowd goes crazy for a half a second until they dance around again..
In my opinion unless Pacquiao knocked him on his ass he was never going to win that match. This just adds fuel that boxing is rigged. I mean think about the money every one made on this fight.. If Manny wins, more than likely there is no rematch, which means no more money. If Mayweather wins there is potential for a rematch, but in reality who even cares. I certainly will not watch the rematch.
In case you need a refresher on what boxing used to be.. Check out the video below:
At the end of the day who cares about boxing.. Today is Sunday when I write this.. And by Tuesday no one will care about this match or boxing again.
I am willing to bet if this fight happened years ago when it should have Pacquiao would have kicked his ass.. All in all the fight was boring. A lot of dancing and a few punches for little payoff.
So.. Everyone back to not caring about boxing… And I will go back to watching the greatest sport.. Hockey. Go Anaheim Ducks!
