Pacquiao: Mayweather Moved Too Much, Got Hit A lot

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao was not impressed with Floyd Mayweather's twelve round decision win over Marcos Maidana last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather retained his WBC/WBA welterweight titles with the victory and picked up his second consecutive win over the Argentine fighter.

Pacquiao felt Mayweather moved too much and that he took too many punches from Maidana. After his win, Mayweather mentioned Pacquiao as a possible opponent for 2015. Pacquiao will first need to defeat unbeaten WBO 140-pound champion Chris Algieri on November 22nd.

"He had footwork. But it was too much footwork... it should have been a fist-fight. His nose was sore, he got hit a lot. Maidana, he wasn't hit [a lot]. Then he won, unanimous decision," Pacquiao told GMA News.

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;14955524]and then Floyd still made his $20 Million anyway: If you include the $19 million-plus live gate (another record) plus millions more in revenue from foreign TV sales, merchandising, sponsorships and closed circuit sales, the fight will gross in excess…
