    Floyd talks to all of his opponents. He mocks them in a condescending way

  • Dave Sam

    try to make it happen

  • Dianne Opsima

    Really? Pacman didn’t do anything? You gotta’ be kidding me. Oh yaah. I forgot Mayweather did a lot of effort, running and hugging. LOL

  • Dianne Opsima

    I totally agree.

  • Maz

    Dave Sam that aint boxing its called dancing. Mayweather the chicken ran around the ring the whole fight and fooled everyone including you into believing he won. the sport of boxing is not the same anymore. The aggressor pacquiao was robbed.

  • Maz

    I agree lol

  • Maz

    Victor i totally agree . Plus they use to give it to the aggressor. We all know Mayweather was certainly not the aggressor. Ppl got robbed again judges got tricked and the new generation of boxing fans know nothing about boxing they think boring fighters are great. I think they are brain washed. I urge eveyone to do one thing watch the fight again but this time turn off the sound and then make your judgement on who actually won. Lets not be fooled by the commentators. Mayweather masterclass dont make me laugh.

  • Maz

    Mate you dont know what your talking about. That aint boxing that is called who can catch the chicken. who was the aggressor. You must love boring fighters put your love for mayweather aside and then tell me if you think it was a great fight. If you still do you are clearly know nothing about boxing.

  • Maz

    All that mayweather knows is how to ran. When did he land any meaningful blows. Who was cut or bruised. Wait a minute I think you were watching a different fight. Lol

  • Mental Floss

    In my opinion, the fight was over-hyped. And when an event is over hyped, it always disappoints. What did people expect? Gone are the Muhammad Ali days of boxing. Now that was exciting.
    Manny and Floyd thank those people who spent enough money that might be sufficient to buy a house or several houses, feed the homeless and so on.

  • Martha Bartha

    I’m glad I didn’t watch it or pay money to watch it.

  • Martha Bartha

    How much did you bet? How much did you pay to see it?

  • Dave Sam

    You on here crying, mayweather is learning to swim…
    males shouldn’t be jealous, that’s a females trait

  • Maz

    Eerrm no your the female who loves boring ass fighters with the judges in his pocket. Your just a mayweather lover know nothing about boxing. You get a boner out of dirty fighters who know how to fool the officials. Watch swimming cause that was not boxing. If thats entertainment for you you get entertained very easily lol. Did you here the fans reaction after the fight booing and mayweather was pleading to them he won the fight why does he need to that because he knows people are not thick like you gayweather lover. They are intelligent and know a winner when they see one. Lmao

  • Ellen Fajardo

    Mayweather should be competing in dancing with the stars instead of boxing with Pacquio.

  • Ellen Fajardo

    Pacquiao should have just stood in the middle of the ring and waited for Mayweather to come around and gave him a straight punch in the face. Mayweather is nothing but a dancing coward. of course Pacquiao couldn’t land punches because the a-hole is running back too much.
    Amazing, Pacquiao loves to sing and Mayweather love to dance!

  • Dave Sam

    you on here crying, im learning to swim lmao

  • Shen Uy

    mayweather didn’t have to run against maidana, this is where he ran the most against a smaller man after he felt the punching power of pacman in the early rounds

  • Maz

    man same lines change your tune like your boring ass boxer. You sound like a song on repeat lol. Go enjoy your pethetic champions win. he might transfer you some money lmao

  • Dave Sam

    Of course he will dumbass… i work for TMT

  • Maz

    I couldn’t care less who you work for dambass. youre fighter is rubbish will never be considered a great. People will continue to boo him because he is a little chicken who runs around for 12 rounds throws a few punches and pleads to the judges and fans im the winner give me this win Lmao. people will always enjoy offensive boxers and let me point out most of the greats were exactly that. Only reason why loads of people been turning up to mayweathers last few fights is to see him get knocked out cause they cant stand him. He makes us sick.

  • Emanuel Luto

    Manny should have wait in the middle of the ring for floyd to come and then do the same thing for all 12 rounds! Best strategy that Coach Roach didn’t know! Too bad!

  • Emanuel Luto

    Manny should have wait in the middle of the ring till floyd come and just repeat this process until the end bell rings. Too bad Roach didn’t instruct manny to do this

  • Dave Sam

    don’t get mad lmao….
    jealousy is an ugly trait lmao

  • Maz

    How can I be jealous of a shit fighter lmao

  • Reyna

    Pacman had an injured shoulder and that’s why his jabs weren’t that great.

  • biracialpplseeallangles

    In all honesty this fight,if that is what we are calling it, should have been judged a tie. Mayweather did nothing to convince me that he put the fear of GOD in pacman, and pacman was just smiling and waving. If you slow the first couple of rounds down, you will see the frustration that pacman is feeling from chasing floyd at one point pacman really is running behind floyd. Floyd may be a runner, but he is brilliant in the fact that he continues to elude, slip and dip us all. He will never stand toe to toe and fight. Why? Because he doesn’t have too. No one has made him answer for this in the ring.He cant take those hits either, Sugar Shane Mosley Rocked mayweather before mayweather beat him. Mayweather should have and could have been stopped by Zab Judah, but Zab did not have the stamina due to he was actually boxing and not evading the fight. Think about this, we are in a fight and you are chasing me around the room, if you chase me enough, remember you are punching and missing because I am fast, eventually you will either become frustrated and off of your game plan or you will be so exhausted from the energy spent chasing, maybe both, All I got to do is time those moments and pow – wow you! I dont have to be great, I dont have to have the hardest punch. You just gave me the fight. This is the M.O of Floyd. Pacman and freddy roach should have known this from videos of mayweather. The game plan should have been better.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Thats something else I hated how Pac made excuses. As Floyd stated, he too had injuries in camp yet he always finds away to win. Fighters get injured all the time. You dont make up lies to steal credit from your opponent.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Floyd didnt run from that little man. He had ZERO respect for Pac, and I seen Floyd run from guys who were supposed to be easier to beat than Pac was. Floyd was the aggressor and Pac looked shocked by Floyd’s speed. Pac looked like he never seen anything like this before in his life, and Floyd has been undefeated for 20yrs. Its amazing actually

  • Legendary Trolly

    Running is when you smack the helll out of Pac with those fast azz right hands? Running is when you bumrush Pac, and Pac is flying to the ropes and being overpowered? Stop making up lies about hugging. Hugging must be a codeword for whipping azz because Pac normally throws 1000 punches a fight. Floyd doesnt even normally throw allot of punches yet he threw more than Pac. Its like Pac was scared to fight or scared to get hit. He doesnt deserve his 100million paycheck for that performance. He robbed the fans and claimed he would beat Floyd easy. Yet Floyd made it look like childsplay which was shocking.

  • Dave Sam

    you sound frustrated lmao

  • THUD

    So for all you crying, shut up. Floyd has been fighting this way his entire career. It’s called defense, number 1 rule in boxing, don’t get hit. Mayweather isn’t a chicken, he’s smart. Watch some of his other fights where he runs and then drills a guy and knocks him out! It’s a strategy. Like it or leave it, it’s legal and a strategy that obviously works since Floyd is about to tie a record for being undefeated. I’ve never been a fan of it and it’s horrible to watch but I knew this going into this fight. I was hoping Pacman could cut him off in the ring and make a brawl out of it but he didn’t. By posting that Floyd is a bad fighter or he should be sued, shows your lack of knowledge of boxing. The entire lead-up to the fight (for a true boxing fan) was “can Manny make Mayweather brawl with him?” Floyd has knocked a lot of people out, he’s a very talented guy. Also by posting that the fight was boring shows even more lack of knowledge of boxing. Everyone thought this was going to be a bloody mess? Very unlikely, these aren’t heavy weights and they are both very good fighters that would never let that happen. For the twitter poll showing 67% thought Pacman would win shows the general lack of knowledge. And for those saying UFC is better, go ahead and pay $50 this weekend for UFC 5,692,001 and watch the WWF action happen. Dana loves you guys and you’ve made him rich! There was another fighter that everyone hated who talked trash all the time…. what was his name??? Can’t remember, maybe Ali or Clay or something? Get a clue people… For the record I wanted Pacman to win also, because I wanted it for his legacy in boxing. Yes I was disappointed also, but that doesn’t make it a bad fight or Floyd’s fault.

  • Maz

    You sound like your a mayweather lover who knows shit about boxing.

  • THUD

    I agree and I think Manny and Freddie had a better game plan I just don’t think Manny executed. I was floored at the end when Manny said he thought he won the fight. Manny was different this fight, seemed to be dulled somehow. Did you also notice that Freddie didn’t say much to Manny in the corner, thought that was odd.

  • THUD

    If you knew anything about boxing you would know that a knock out or even Manny winning was very unlikely. So sorry you are disappointed because you expected something that all the odds were against it. For God’s sake, these guys are 38 and 36 years old. Go watch WWE, everyone knows the outcomes…

  • THUD

    You couldn’t be more wrong, with Mayweather’s jab and reach advantage getting Mayweather on the ropes and fighting him close was the only strategy. Ricky Hatton tried fighting Mayweather in the middle of the ring and he was carried out on a stretcher.

  • Andi

    Anyone blaming Mayweather for this snooze fest must be blind. Pacquiao took the money and mailed it in. It’s hard to make me stick up for Mayweather, and Pacquiao makes it really quite easy to be honest. Awful performance.

  • Dave Sam

    i told you, i work for tmt.
    Have fun being jealous lmao mayweather beat that chink

  • Emanuel Luto

    Man, everytime Manny cornered Floyd on the ropes, he just run away, still MP’s camp didn’t adjust to that, they should have plan B like counter punching, I know it’s unbecoming of MP but that’s the name of the game when you’re facing a boxer as smart as Floyd. MP should aim for more points rather than the KO which is cleary impossible given also the fact that MP has a shoulder injury. With MP’s hand speed it’s unbelievable if he cannot reach Floyd’s head and earn points

  • Maz

    He may have fooled the judges but not the fans. Mayweather will always remember the constant booing. Man was running scared not willing to engage in an offensive battle. why would I be jealous. I just wanted to see 2 men battle it out and mayweather didnt earn the respect for boxing the way he did and never will.

  • Wang Bi

    Recent news said that Mayweather bribed the judges to win because if you look at the scorecards, Pacman was in the red ring with the highest scores but unanimous decision was in Mayweather’s favor. So Pacman did actually win, but it took place in America, with American judges , being bribed by an American….

  • Reyna

    I’ve seen the article about the scorecards but that bribing article you’re referring to was called “Falsity News” lol

  • Legendary Trolly

    That was a spoof site you idiot lol Mayweather dominated the fight and made it look easy. I dont need judges to see that Pac was levels below Floyd. You didnt need judges either. Keep it funky punk!

  • Dave Sam

    go cry on oprah

  • THUD

    We know from the past what effects Floyd, lots of punching and pin him on the ropes. Make him brawl, keep him out of the middle of the ring. Yes I read the story yesterday about how pacman had an injured shoulder. If all this is true then the fight should have never happened in the first place. But everyone wanted the money….

  • Maz

    the only one who is crying is your boy Mayweather because people think he sucks big time. He should have starred in Forest Gump cause all he does is run LMAO

  • Dave Sam

    He is crying in a pile of money…lmao
    you are crying with lotion and a sock

  • Maz

    I couldn’t care less about his money. he is taking all that money to his grave lol people wont remember him for his money but for his boxing and he will be remembered as the pound for pound chicken

  • Dave Sam

    And people don’t even know you exist
