Mayweather – Pacquiao Fight

Even though the Mayweather - Pacquiao fight has been quashed for the time being, that hasn't stopped online sportsbooks like (see website here) from offering betting on the outcome.  And, likewise, the news hasn't stopped gamblers from placing their bets on Mayweather - Pacquiao either.   Each night, Manny Pacquiao consistently ranks among the top 5 bets at -105 vs. Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

Pacquiao beat Joshua Clottey decisively Saturday night as was to be expected.  The Filipino phenom entered that fight as a huge -800 favorite.

Despite his big win, Mayweather Jr. continues to mock Pacquiao.

"I think Pacquiao got exposed in that fight for being one-dimensional. You can have all the offense ability in the world, but with no defense, you're not going to last long against a good counter puncher such as myself," he said in an interview.

He mentioned the injuries inflicted upon Pacquiao by Clottey, specifically the small bruise under his right eye.

To prove his point, he said a defensive fighter like Clottey who threw punches by a spurt, had Pacquiao all busted up by the end of the match, obviously referring to the small bruise the Filipino had just under his right eye.

"When was the last time you've seen my face all messed up like that?" asked Mayweather, who was once known as "Pretty Boy" Floyd but changed his nickname to "Money" Mayweather. "That's the difference between an amateur and a true pound-for-pound boxer."

Mayweather told fans not to expect such a lackluster fight during his May 1 showdown against "Sugar" Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for the World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight belt.

"At least when you watch Floyd Mayweather Jr., you know you'll be seeing non-stop action for 30 minutes straight," said the one-time Olympic bronze medalist.
