Pacquiao fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 2, 2015. After years of tumultuous negotiations, the two finally met in the ring, Pacquiao with the intent to be the aggressor and Mayweather with the strategy of diffuse and counter. The fight went the distance and to the official judges scorecards which read (118–110, 116–112, 116–112) in favor of Mayweather.
The result was largely criticized by many of the fans and celebrities who witnessed the fight, expressing their disappointment of what had been billed as the "Fight of the Century" The verdict was that the fight did not live up to its expectations mostly on the performance of Mayweather's too defense-oriented strategy, with Pacquiao essentially chasing him around the ring trying to create an action. Most individual opinions about the match were split in two. Eluding to the punch stats, which have since been discredited, 16 of 18 media outlets scored the bout in favor of Mayweather by varying margins. Other reporters and fellow fighters, on closer inspection of the fight, have questioned the compubox stats and judges score cards, especially the wideness of the margins, stating that the rounds should have been scored much closer, or that Pacquiao should have won via a small edge.
Manny Pacquiao said “I thought I won the fight. He’s moving around. It’s not easy to throw punches when he’s moving around so much.… “It’s not about size. Size doesn't matter. I fought bigger. I thought I caught him many more times than he caught me.”
In the post-fight interview, the Pacquiao camp claimed he fought handicapped with an injured right shoulder. Promoter Bob Arum said he suffered the injury in mid-March, describing it as "the same as the one Kobe Bryant had." Manny said:"This fight doesn't bother me too much, I did my best. I hurt my shoulder, but I didn't complain or say I was injured. This is part of the game. I didn't want to make any excuses.
In the end despite the criticism the Mayweather vs Pacquiao match earned a record 4.4 million pay-per-view buys
