    Glad I didn't waste my time.
    First thing I thought when I heard Pac say he was hurt for the fight was that they are setting up rematch...Pac was hurt so he deserves a second chance in September and it will be billed as "Money's last fight - and against Pacquiao". They both walk away with another $100+ mil each...

    Manny is fishing for a rematch with everything he is saying and I doubt Floyd will give it to him. Trying to cause a stir by saying Floyd didn't do anything and how he thought he won the match and now claiming he was injured and maybe not at his best. Injury or no injury would have stopped him from chasing Floyd all around the ring last night and hitting only 9 jabs.

    I bought this fight. I wouldn't buy the rematch.

    I watched it for free and thought it play out like it did, won my bet that it would go the distance, and was still slightly disappointed.

    I wish I had those 3 hours back . Horribly boring and i'll never watch another " boxing" match . That was a joke . Never got the feeling either man wished to hurt the other . Was kinda like a dance . with no violence ( unlike mma)

    I think the post match reactions are hilarious. There are way more casual "boxing fans" than I thought.

    No chance they can sell a rematch for $100. Most probably wouldn't pay anything at all, myself included.

    I am not even a casual boxing fan...could not care less about this fight or any other. The question I would think for Mayweather is if he is only fighting one more time (and he says he is fighting his last fight in Sept.), which fight makes him the most money...as that seems to be the thing that matters most to him. Is it Pac or someone else?

    Probably someone else. They said last night he wants to tie Rocky Marciano'a record of 49-0 and then not break it and retire.

    Manny is the only person capable of catching Floyd and it was shown he couldn't do it last night.

    Yep. Maybe a few years ago but Floyd knew he was at no risk going in to this fight.

    If anything came out of the hype and attention this fight received, it was the exposing of Floyd Mayweather, especially with his record of domestic violence. It culminated with the Mayweather camp blocking the media credentials of Rachel Nichols and Michele Beadle the day of the match. I was shocked at how pro-Manny the crowd was.

    Great fight tactfully by Mayweather. I'd much rather watch a Tyson fight back in his prime, and that's because I can't even consider myself a casual boxing fan.

    I have never seen Mayweather fight so I am basing this off of all I have read. If Mayweather is all about counter punching, what would happen if an opponent stood in the middle of the ring and did not pursue Mayweather? Has that ever happened in one of his fights? What would he do if his opponent refused to attack him?
