Mayweather threw 435 punches and 138 of them landed. Pacquiao threw 429 punches and landed 81. By a unanimous decision, MAYWEATHER won and is now 48-0 as he looks to retire after his final fight in September. There are some skeptics who believed that his talk of retirement would get in the way of Mayweather mentally preparing for last night’s star-studded event but Mayweather was certainly prepared.
After the loss Pacquiao, who now has 57 wins, six losses and two draws blamed an injury to his shoulder for his defeat.
WBO welterweight, WBC, and WBA are now the titles held by Mayweather as he was awarded the fight by the three judges; 118-110, 116-112, and 116-112.
Jamie Foxx sang the National Anthem before the fight began. A lot of people complained. I understand.
Sorry, but I’m out of time to write about this. I just can’t wait to get back to work tomorrow to hear the silence from some of those who told me how foolish I was to believe that Mayweather would win. It’s a good thing that I’m not a betting man. I would have taken their money. But the real money goes to Mayweather who’s getting the bigger share of the $230 million jackpot for the “fight of the century”.
