The supposed biggest fight in boxing history finally happened early Sunday morning and Floyd Mayweather put on a clinic and completely neutralised Manny Pacquiao and won on a unanimous decision. We can all appreciate Mayweather's brilliance but in truth only boxing purists came away satisfied with a bout that never really caught fire.
The 3 judges scored the fight 118-110, 116-112, 116-112, all in favor of Floyd Mayweather

Too much talent, Floyd. If only he was a tenth as good a human being as he is a fighter

Floyd Mayweather is an incredible fighter, but he just bored me out of $100. #MayPac

Seriously that Manny Pacquiao performance was pitiful. Where were all those angles you all kept arguing about? Lol #NoActivity

Pacquiao just is not the same whirling dervish he once was. The willingness to throw for three rounds just isn't there. Physical, mental?

Well now I know enough to know that Floyd Mayweather ducking punches for 36 minutes makes for shit television.

Slating Mayweather for avoiding this fight for years til Manny was like he is now is a totally valid criticism.
