Fight of the century : Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao

{backdated}

So, the fight of the century came and gone on 2nd of May 2015. It was between undefeated five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather and eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao.

Was the fight really the ultimate fight? Did it live up to the hype? Did spectators felt their money was well spent? Who was the better fighter? Was it rigged? What was up with both boxers?

Loads of testosterone

Unfortunately, even as a noob about boxing, I could tell the fight certainty fell short of anyone's hyped expectations of a worthy match.

All our efforts to try and secure a spot at Stamford Hotel intersecting between Wellington Road and Stud Road was for naught. Even as the match progressed, I kept asking Mr. C or more like annoying him with my thousand and one questions "Is this it? Is this really what people want to watch? Where got the chikekness? The excitement? The awesome wow fighting? Why did Mayweather keep dodging and dancing away?? and Pacquiao looks short".

And now, there's a lawsuit due to the lackluster fight. Aaahh.. how American. 

The crowd at the sports bar

Did my good deed for the day - saw an elderly lady standing by the railing without a chair and saw an empty seat. Carried the chair to the lady amidst the loitering male bodies!
