It was billed as the "Fight of the Century" and it lived up to the name both in the ring and in the cable companies' bank accounts. Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Manny Pacquiao by unanimous decision Saturday night in Las Vegas. The fight featured the boxers' bests — Pacquiao's vicious punch combos and Mayweather's elusive defense.
But it was Mayweather whose best was best. Pacquiao, the more offensive-minded boxer, landed just 19% of his punches while Mayweather hit about 34%.
"I know for one thing, Pacquiao is going to come forward. Pacquiao is going to be aggressive," boxer Jason Strout told Bleacher Report.
