Manny Pacquiao, I believe, posed too much against Floyd Mayweather. He would have been much more effective throwing punches in bunches, when appropriate to do so. Another option that Manny could have done was cut the ring off by making the ring feel smaller. It would have helped Manny get in the position where he can throw those flurries, that he tried to do in the bout.
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather simply did what he had to do to stay undefeated. The fans may not have enjoyed seeing the fight, but Floyd was doing what he became 47-0 doing… And that’s boxing smart. With Manny, he created what appeared to be an opening, yet he was really setting himself up to counter Manny’s punches. Manny only connected on 19% of his punches; something he’s totally not used to.
In the end, the viewers and attendees were disappointed with this fight and many say, #Underwhelmed. Floyd did what he does best, while Manny couldn’t connect with as many punches as he’d like. Of course there’s the talk about Manny’s shoulder, but that’s another issue. The whole production did a masterful job with their marketing of this fight, taking advantage of every conceivable revenue stream to blow all the numbers out of the record books. Who knows, we may never see numbers like this again! After all, Mayweather did prove to have a 9-figure check in his pocket in the post-fight interview. All in all, there’s talk about a rematch after Manny is healthy, but we’ll have to see if that happens. And if so, do fans even want to see this fight happen? What are your thoughts?[/fusion_text]
