Five key moments in Floyd Mayweather’s
triumph over Manny Pacquiao in the richest
boxing fight in history:
+ In the seconds before the fight, Pacquiao in
his “MP” t-shirt took a selfie en route to the
ring which was quickly posted on Twitter.
Mayweather in his shiny black and white jacket
earned a crescendo of jeers from the partisan
audience and did not give away a smile.
+ American Mayweather raced into a key
psychological lead in the first three rounds,
brilliantly avoiding Pacquiao’s punches and
diving in with counter attacks at lightning
speed.
+ Filipino hero Pacquiao scored his first serious
points in taking the fourth round, forcing
Mayweather onto the defensive with four
powerful blows. There was a deafening roar
from the crowd that included Robert de
Niro, Clint Eastwood, Justin Bieber and former
heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield.
+ ‘Money Man’ Mayweather takes control from
round five even though he appears to get
criticism from his father Floyd senior in the
corner. Pacquiao appears to take rounds seven,
nine and 11 but his opponent is in control
otherwise even though the crowd are chanting
“Manny, Manny” In round 11, Mayweather
opened with a straight right to Pacquiao’s face
and grew in confidence as the fight came to an
end knowing he had won.
+ Pacquiao raised his arms in the air after the
final bell, but his face was soon one of defeat.
Mayweather embraced his father and is then
awarded a unanimous points win to claim his
48th straight professional win without a defeat
and his biggest payday. “He had moments in
the fight but I kept him on the outside. I was a
smart fighter, I outboxed him,” said
Mayweather as his opponent made his lonely
way back to the dressing room
