The fight of the century has concluded. Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. still has a perfect record. Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is the undefeated People’s Champ.
Based on the score cards, Money May is the greatest boxer of his era. He just defeated the one and only eight division champion and added millions to his already huge bank account.
But in addition to his undeniable accolades are the boos and trolls he receive both in the MGM Grand arena and in social media:

Please stop referring to Mayweather as “Gayweather”. Very insulting to associate that running champion to gays.. Hindi siya welcome. 👎🏻

As of press time, the hashtags #Mayweather and #LUTOANGLABAN are still trending. Many netizens have posted sarcastic remarks against Mayweather, proving that while he got the belts, Pacquiao won the hearts of the people.
To be honest here, Pacquiao didn’t let us down. He represented how humble Filipinos are & that’s better than a belt and a rude personality. — •✧ PACQUIAO AF ✧• (@harrysicing) May 3, 2015

Pacman has 1D, Paris Hilton, Ellie Goudling, Boyce Avenue, the crowd. In short, the whole world. Mayweather has the belt and Justin B.”
