Mayweather recorded his victory from a #unanimous decision made by the judges after the bout of 12 rounds ended in deadlock.
The judges had it 118-110, 116-112, 116-112. However, a correspondent of The Telegraph noted: “the first score is too wide, but I don’t disagree with 116-112. I had it 115-113.”
He continued: “would still like to see a second fight – but not if it takes 5 and a half years.
Speaking after winning the match, to a solid chorus of boos, Mayweather said: “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.”
For Pacquiao, who accepted the outcome of the encounter with Grace and class, the fight would be a memorable one in his career.
Here is what he said: “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.”
Already, following the boos that greeted the announcement of Mayweather as winner of the ‘fight of the century’, there are already talks of a rematch for the two fighters.
Though, nothing is ruled out in the game of sports, it remains to be seen how long it would take to see both men square up again.
