RE: Mayweather / Pacquiao
I thought Mayweather won the fight pretty convincingly if we're scoring round by round. Pacquiao simply didn't do enough and was actually outlanded by Mayweather. All the crap we heard from Manny and Freddy Roach about using movement to get in and hurt Mayweather was non-existent. I think Manny landed maybe one straight left that buzzed Mayweather and spent the rest of the fight chasing and getting hit with jabs to the body and straight right hands to the face.

By the way, since I don't really care for Mayweather's style I'm posting the link to Mayweather v. Corrales so people can remember what a phenomenal boxer he was at 130 lbs. He used to fight more offensively and wouldn't spend a fight in a defensive shell. Corrales was an absolute physical specimen at 130 pounds and was actually favored in this fight. Floyd put on a boxing clinic mixing his great defense with phenomenal offensive fighting. This is one of the better boxing performances I've ever seen when you consider the quality of the opponent.

Yes that was a great fight. The problem is too many people forget 'Pretty boy' and focus on 'Money'. This guy has taken all comers on, and when his hands weren't so brittle he could take guys out. I never could understand why anyone believed Manny could win that fight
