Fight of the Century
Money by decision. Pacquiao will probably pick up early rounds, Mayweather will start to pick up the pace around 4th round, Pacquiao will turn it up again in the 10th, but Mayweather will weather the storm to take the decision 8-4. This is my poorly educated guess.
Anyone know of a radio station doing live commentary?

I watched it. What a complete waste of time.

Mayweather was the obvious winner, but the fight itself was fucking trash. Boxing is dead.

I haven't been able to watch it, what was so bad about the fight? Was it boring?

Mayweather basically did the boxing equivalent of parking the bus. He evaded Pacquiao for most of the match and used his superior reach to outmaneuver him. Whenever Pacquiao came through, Mayweather just hugged him and so pretty much stifled any chance of actual boxing happening.
It's like you see someone abuse a glitch in a competitive online multiplayer game. They call it clever but the viewers are gonna say no. I feel sorry for those people who had to pay $100 for this garbage. It's true, you can add boxing to the list of things that are officially dead.

I listened to it on BBC Radio 5, but fell asleep during the 5th/6th.

I see that today most Hong Kong's bar areas are crowded of westerners. I guess this is what that's about. Can you share with us what is fight of the century exactly? I watched those large panel TV in the bars, seem to be some boxing matches.

I like how they have to advertise something as "the fight of the century" to get people remotely interested in boxing these days. Never heard of either of the contestants before now.

Didn't even watch up to round 6. I knew that Pac is much more offensive but, eh, I've seen more matches that are better than this. Also, I kinda knew that Mayweather would win, not rooting for him tho.
Video games and woodwork are two similar things, they make you scream during certain conditions.

Without wanting to take away from boxing's amazing history, this is why I watch MMA. There are a lot of big fights each year, with more ways to win. You'll still have the odd stinker but won't be waiting a long time for another interesting fight.

MayPac was always going to be boring, because of Floyd Mayweather. There's a video of Floyd in 2009 prophesying the outcome: that he'd win, and everyone would call it 'boring'.
Anyway, boxing is in seriously decent shape, MMA fans be damned. The week before MayPac, there was the Klitschko vs Jennings, and the week after there was Alvarez vs Kirkand. Alvarez vs Kirkand was probably what people wanted out of MayPac, as it had a seriously awesome knockout which you can probably watch on Youtube now.
Tomorrow there's a fight featuring Gennady Golovkin, who has had like 20 straight knockouts and he's only a middleweight.
It's a really good time to be a boxing fan to be honest.
