    Floyd threw more too!!

    Manny's gameplan was horrible. He and Roach should be ashamed of themselves tbh.
    He was injured! Between his right shoulder and David Haye's dodgy toe they're surely entitled to some DSA.

    I know, it seems like people think Pac should have won because he looked more willing to come forward - Floyd is similar to Jose Mourinho, it may not always be entertaining but he'll find a way to win

    Canelo-Kirkland is where the real action is. I agree with De La Hoya.

    Apparently Pacquiao is out for pretty much a year because he needs shoulder surgery. Slightly more authentic than Haye's toe excuse anyway.

    Anyone who thinks Pac deserved to win that fight does not know a thing about boxing. It may have been a boring fight but Mayweather deffo won that. he is definately the best fighter of our generation. His 48-0 record tells you that easlily. Team Mayweather all the way!

    Apparently, Floyd has texted an ESPN guy and told him he's willing to wait for Manny to recover from his shoulder surgery, which will take 9-12 months and give him a rematch?! Jokes. Floyd knows that ain't happening but looks good PR in someways..

    Floyd should wait, and put the idea the shoulder was an reason for his loss to bed. That has got to be some of the easiest money Floyd has ever made.

    ITV4 at 11pm tonight - a programme about the rise of Manny Pacquiao. Apparently it has been on before, anyone seen it?

    Thanks for that. Why did they not air if before the fight...

    EDIT: Rep system is so messed up. A feeling of surprise when I'm actually able to rep someone rather than PRSOM. Can't even go on neg sprees anymore.

    I can already see what's going to happen. Floyd beats Amir Khan later this year, announces his retirement.

    Manny returns next year, beats a good 140/147lber convincingly, say Jessie Vargas. Hype surrounds Manny, media say he's still one of the best in boxing etc. Floyd returns, HBO pay him $200m to fight Manny for his 50th fight.

    You have to admit the people on youtube make really funny youtube videos about the Mayweather-Pacquaio fight. Boxing is entertaining, not only are you watching contenders fight but you also see the funny stuff in boxing, such as the memes on the internet

    You think he'll fight Amir? I've heard most people talking about Garcia. Kind of want him to stand Khan up tbh. Still feel Khan should be looking for a Garcia rematch instead of a nothing fight with Algieri, remove that stain from his record.

    It could go either way with Floyd. With his preparation, I don't think getting back in the ring is something he will take lightly, he'll need to be in top condition. Not sure he'll have that drive once he's retired. That said, I think Floyd will get lonely outside the ring, without all the attention and acclaim. Might prove too much of a lure, beyond just the money.

    Khan would be an interesting fight for Floyd. Noticed that he generally likes using his reach well, and he's quick enough to get his punches in and duck out of there. Would like to see how he fights a guy taller than him who's immensely quick with the jab. Might just be mere speculation as he probably has that I can't recall, but it'd be a better fight than Manny gave him I reckon.

    i respect pacquiao a lot however during the lead up to this fight he got a little bit cocky and then to make matters worse he forgot how to fight for 9/10 rounds. Floyd was the better fighter during the night.And if skill and technique is boring, then yes that fight was hella boring.

    At the end of the day though, they both walked out with over 100 million dollar so basically they both won.

    heck even maidana gave a better fight than pacquiao did. what i like about amir khan is that he would put his chin on the line against floyd and go all out something i expected pacquiao to do. i don't think amir khan would be able to beat floyd but it will definitely be a closer fight than floyd-pacman.
