1. Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao (2015)

This was one of the most disappointing fights ever. Firstly, Mayweather robbed the fans of something special by waiting until Pacquaio was older. This was a calculated move on Money’s part because he was wary of the Filipino’s power. The fight should have occurred at least five years earlier but boxing politics interfered.

In the end, it was the fans who suffered. The bout was very boring because Pacquaio was unable to assert himself in terms of offense. Mayweather defended and countered for the entire fight. He constantly clinched his opponent and ground out a decision win. New arrived that Pacquiao had a srious shulder injury before the fight. By then, the fans’ money had already been gone for some time. It was the biggest pay-per-view in boxing history but didn’t really even get close to living up to the expectations.
