The ‘Fight of the Century’ between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao turned out to one of the most boring and overhyped bouts in living memory, and it’s safe to say everyone agrees with that assessment.
If you didn’t watch the fight, Mayweather shocked most spectators by beating crowd favorite Pacquiao. The fact he won is not the big issue; rather, it’s the manner in which he did that left everyone disappointed.
Boxing aficionados likely enjoyed his masterclass in defensive boxing — he kept running around like a coward, some would say — but all it resulted in was a lack of the edge-of-seat action we all expected.
While Manny had his moments, he was undoubtedly out-boxed on the night. A lot of eyebrows were raised when he thought he had won after the dust (or lack thereof) settled…
Either he smoked some really good sh*t before the fight, or all the years of fighting did a number on his head. Regardless, social media was flooded with comments about how boring the ‘Fight of the Century’ was…

Anyone complaining about how boring the fight was doesn't appreciate the awesome technical skill that made it so truly boring.
