For nearly six years Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and their respective camps traded jabs outside the ring as the public yearned to see the sport’s two biggest stars face-off. The two boxers finally squared off last month after a series of tortured negotiations. Was it worth the wait? Most boxing fans would argue no, as Pacquiao delivered a listless performance, no doubt impacted by a torn rotator cuff, and Mayweather put on his usual defensive clinic. But for the fighters and everyone involved in the bout, it was an absolute knockout from a financial perspective.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. extended his undefeated record on Saturday, beating Manny Pacquiao in one of the most widely anticipated boxing matches of the decade.
