Mayweather Beat Manny Pacquiao with a Unanimous decision and kept his undefeated record for another fight, now stands at 48-0 he has one more fight left in his contract with Showtime.
A fight which never really lived up to its expectations and hype with Mayweather running out with a unanimous points decision. Manny Pacquiao gave him problems but not consistently enough to get anything from this fight. A rematch is inevitable but too me Manny Pacquiao never showed anything which can suggest that he can clinch a result or stope Mayweather if they were to fight again.
Having said that Mayweathers style of boxing is pretty boring yet highly effective that even a fighter of Pacquiao caliber could not penetrate and land power punches consistently. For me personally Maidana gave Mayweather tougher test in their first fight than What Pacquiao could come up with. On the right side is our unofficial score card and how did we score the fight round by round.
