In what was one of the most highly anticipated boxing matchups of all time, Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. cemented his legacy Saturday night by defeating Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao via unanimous decision 118-110, 116-112, 116- 112 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
With the victory, the 38-year-old Mayweather improved his perfect record to 48-0 and won the WBO welterweight title from his Filipino opponent.
The fight was eclipsed only by the amount of money each fighter was paid. The champion Floyd Mayweather received $150 million and the Pachiao walked away with almost $100 million. The fight was the largest revenue producer in boxing history generating over $500,000,000.
Both fighters are weighing their future following the fight. Mayweather said after the fight he will fight once more and Pachiao has said he may fight twice.
