The determination and desire to crawl out of crime and poverty that prize fighting gave to both Mayweather and Pacquiao is admirable. Even though Pacquiao lost, he is a larger-than-life hero for all Filipinas. Pacquiao, once homeless and fighting for $2 per win at age fourteen back in The Phillipines, could now run for president of his native country, and win.
I'd want a refund if I'd paid big bucks to see this fight. Mayweather defended and threw out a few punches whilst Pacquiao fought hard and with only one good hand (his team are saying he was denied a pain killer for a shoulder injury that had been permitted by the commission). Hmmmm..
|One of many good punches that Manny got in.|
How Mayweather won that fight I'll never know.
