MAYWEATHER WON HONESTLY
It has been a week since the most anticipated boxing match in recent history. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao went 12 rounds with the decision going to Mayweather.
Many people were rooting for Pacquiao and feel Mayweather ran from him and didn't box him that's why he won. I know a lot of people don't want to hear this but did you honestly expect Floyd Mayweather to do anything different?
If you are familiar with Mayweather fights than you know that's how he fights. To beat him you must keep him on the ropes, in a corner and win eight of the twelve rounds. Like others Pacquiao tried to do that but failed and the result was Mayweather staying unbeaten.
Boxing is a very tough sport but when you think about it there are really just two ways to win. Hit the other guy harder and more often and don't get hit by the other guy. When you look at boxing like that there is no question Mayweather won the fight. Although the fight did leave us with plenty of questions. How bad was Pacquiao hurt and how much did it affect his game plan? Will there be a rematch and when?
Those are just a few questions and hopefully they will soon be answered if or when we see Mayweather/Pacquiao 2.
