The World Welterweight Championship between Manny Paquiao, the reigning WBO World Welterweight champion (57-5, 38KOs) and undefeated WBC & WBA World Welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather.
The judges had it 118-110, 116-112, 116-112. Mayweather won.
Here’s Manny Pacquiao:
It was a good fight. I got him many times. I saw the punches. I thought I won the fight. He is moving around, it is not easy to throw a lot of punches. I can handle his power. He is not strong like some others. He’s not bigger than me, the size doesn’t matter, I have fought bigger guys.
First off, I want to thank God. I want to think all the fans around the world. This was a hell of a fight. I take my hat off to Manny Pacquiao, now I see why he is one of the guys at the pinacle of boxing. I am truly blessed. Manny Pacquaio is truly blessed. I am a calculating fighter. He is a tough competitor. I had to take my time with him. My last fight is in September.
