PHILIPPINE pride Manny Pacquiao has expressed disbelief over his loss to American super boxer Floyd Mayweather during their “Fight of the Century” on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) at the jam-packed MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“I thought I won the fight. He didn’t do anything,” said Pacquiao, claiming Mayweather “was always running…always moving outside.”
Judges Glenn Feldman and Burt Clements both scored 116-112, while third judge Dave Moretti gave 118-110, bringing 48th wins to Mayweather.
Asked what his next plan after the defeat, the 36-year old Filipino boxer said: “Take it easy, have a vacation. Bob (Arum) will take care of the rest.”
Pacquiao however said that it was a good fight.
Mayweather, thanking his fans, also said he salute Pacquiao for being a “tough competitor.”
“He’s a true champion at heart, we both did our best tonight.”
In his post-fight press conference, Mayweather maintained he was “born a winner.”
“Win win win, that’s all I know. I am always 10 steps ahead of my opponent,” he said.
Asked if he is interested for a rematch with Pacquaio, the 38-year-old Mayweather said he is “not yet thinking about it as of now.”
“What I want to do right now is go home and rest.”
The two has agreed for a 60/40 revenue split of the estimated $300-400 million estimated total revenue of the boxing match.
