The much awaited epic boxing match between Floyd Mayweather of the United States and Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines saw Mayweather defeat his opponent on an unanimous decision in what was billed as the ‘fight of the century‘ by fans and the media. This will now be Mayweather’s 48th consecutive bout that has ended in a win, along with 26 knockouts and no losses. The two boxers had been sparring for a box-office bustup for several years, but frequent delays meant the fight had no chance of happening until last night.
Pacquiao, in his normal humble manner, congratulated his opponent on their win.
Here is a selection of Facebook posts of the outcome of the fight….
