Floyd Mayweather Jr. cemented his place among the pantheon of boxing greats by improving to 48-0 with a unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao on Saturday in a fight that lived up to its immense hype and price tag.
Mayweather weathered an early assault from the Filipino southpaw before winning the later rounds using his reach and jab to finish ahead on all three scorecards in a welterweight showdown set to be the top grossing prize fight of all-time.
Floyd Mayweather after victory said,
”I can’t say he’s the hardest puncher that I faced, but I can see why he’s where he’s at in the sport. As little moves as he tried to make in the fight but to me, having so much experience boxing in so many different styles, I can counter and calculate his moves,Monday I’m going to relinquish all the belts. I made a decision in the back that my last fight may not be a championship fight. I’m going to give up all my belts, it’s still going to be a 12 round fight but I’m going to relinquish all the belts on Monday”
Manny Pacquiao expressed the following,
”I did my best, but my best wasn’t good enough.Two weeks before the fight, one week before the fight, my shoulder is getting better and better but not really totally 100 percent. It recovered but at least I can use it, something wrong”
