By Alon Calinao Dy: Mayweather said he is a better fighter than Manny Pacquiao after he took the WBO belt of the Filipino boxing icon.
Pacquiao should have won if the Mayweather and Pacquiao bout happened 5 years ago, but Mayweather knew that Pacquiao had an injury before the fight that is why he took the fight.
Holyfield, Mosley and other known boxers thought that Pacquiao won the fight against Mayweather on May 2 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, and they believed that the aggressor as Pacquiao should be given a higher score than the running fighter.
Mayweather called Pacquiao after the fight "a sore loser and a coward," but Mayweather changed his decision that there is no rematch between him and Pacquiao. Now, who is a coward boxer between the two after Mayweather changed his mind not to fight Pacquiao for a second time?
At first I thought Mayweather won on points, but when I reviewed their fight Pacquiao was a real winner. Just like Holyfield and Mosley, Vegas judges should have scored the competition to the attacker in the fight. Fans have been blinded to the jabs of Mayweather that have no ability to hurt Pacquiao.
I don't think Pacquiao lost the fight, especially his fans as everyone now knows who is a more courageous fight and willing to give it all. Pacquiao did not quit fighting Mayweather, knowing he suffered a shoulder injury.
Mayweather had the advantage to finish the fight, but he did not engage and take the risk to knock Pacquiao out. He moved, ran, and played the money of the people who expected him to give them a good bout. I don't think I saw " The Fight of the Century," but it was more a flight of the century.
