Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight video replay: The aftermath of the Fight of the Century

Floyd Mayweather showed his defensive style and offensive juggernaut to beat Manny Pacquiao in a unanimous decision in the biggest boxing fight in the history in front of a sold-out crowd at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather outboxed Pacquiao in almost every aspects of the fight. Judge Dave Moretti handed a score of 118-110 while judges Glenn Fieldman and Burt Clements scored 116-112 for Mayweather, who stays undefeated at 48-0. Mayweather displayed his artistic defense against the combination attacks of Pacquiao.

The two boxers were tentative in the first two rounds but it clearly went to Mayweather. Pacquiao put Mayweather on the defensive most of the time but the American continued to maneuver through his counter punches that hit Pacquiao.

CompuBox recorded Mayweather to land 148 of his 435 punches, 34 percent, while Pacquiao landed 81 of his 429 punches, only 19 percent. Mayweather masterfully defended Pacquiao’s aggression with his own jabs and left hooks.

“It’s a good fight. I thought I won the fight,” he said. “He didn’t do anything. He moved outside. I got him many more times with a lot of punches, and I thought I won the fight; I was never hurt. I was very surprised at the scores.”

“I could handle his power,” Pacquiao said. “He was not as strong as [Miguel] Cotto or [Antonio] Margarito. He is not bigger than me. I have been fighting bigger guys than him.”

“I thought we pulled it out,” Roach said. “I asked him to throw more combinations between rounds but maybe he fought flat-footed a little too much.”

Most of the crowd were on the side of Pacquiao as they chanted, “Manny, Manny!” in the 12th round.

Surely, there’s no rematch because of the outcome of the fight. Moreover, both fighters were not engaging that much throughout the 12 rounds.

What’s next for Mayweather?
In his post interview Mayweather said:

“I’m almost 40 years old and been in this sport for a long time, champion for 18 years,” Mayweather said. “I am fighting in September, and then it’s time for me to hang it up.”

Mayweather might end up his career on September because of his contractual obligation to Showtime. However, he can rest and retire right now while his record is still unblemished.

What’s next for Pacquiao?

When asked who is his next opponent, Pacquiao responded, “I’ll leave it to Bob Arum”. The loss of Pacquiao has turned a country into mourning, however, it is not like the way they felt when Pacquiao was TKO’d by Manuel Marquez. Most of the fans thought that the judges saw it differently, and Pacquiao should have won, or at least a draw.
