    the fight was supposed to save boxing, instead I watched bullshit judges give every round to mayweather. gone are the days of frazier & ali when boxing wasn't rigged & judges weren't bought.

    i'll take a good MMA match over boxing any day, although some of this bullshit seems to be infecting that sport now too.

    116-112 would have been fair.

    Not close enough for a rematch. too boring to sell even if it was.

    You have to land punches for them to count. Pac had the appearance of the aggressor but but he was just out boxed. As for the quality of the fight, I've seen better...

    I feel bad for the idiots who drooled over this match thinking it would be a classic.

    This match should have happened 5 years ago when both were in their prime. Except Mayweather was a coward and never agreed to a match. He only took it now because he knew he'd beat Pac-Man.

    Boxing is dead. :rip:

    People are dumb. If there's a rematch it will sell , and it will sell big. Just look at this fight. People bought into hype that was totally fabricated. This was the most predictable big money fight maybe of all time. Obvious there would be no kos. Obvious Floyd would avoid punched. Zzzz fest , yet huge money was made.

    When your guaranteed $100 million why put yourself in danger? Ridiculous.

    Typical Mayweather fight, defensive movements and bobbing. 10 years ago Pac may have been agile enough to connect. Reminded me of Ray Leonard toying with Roberto Duran, another fight I hated to watch.

    You said you didn't watch the fight.

    Your opinion is invalid.
