such a travesty. I feel bad for those of you who shelled out money to watch it.

The fight itself was worth the money honestly, then you have a legendary bad decision. I actually think it was worth the money given you saw history, be that it was possibly the most negative ever in the sport of Boxing.

Me? Streamed it on my laptop and to my TV with HDMI with some friends. Sure it wasn't real HD, but it sure was better than shitty streaming on a comp.

I watched it on crappy streaming but that is only because ZERO bars were showing it. Even Buffalo Wild Wings didn't have it.

Boxing is dying and it has only it self to blame. This is just the rats trying to get a little more out of the sinking ship.

I'm glad I didn't pay for it, either... I know I would have broken something. The 117-111 score is a common one, but I've seen some unofficial scorecards from some longtime boxing analysts and experts that even had it 119-109.

You know if Teddy Atlas is disgusted enough to comment publicly on how bad it was, and suggest corruption was at work, then it HAD to be one of the worst decisions of all time. Typically you'd expect Teddy to defend boxing to his last breath.

Incompetent/bribed decisions have skyrocketed in recent years; and whoever is behind it isn't anywhere near as good at it as the fixers were back in the day... in the old days, if you were going to run a boxing hustle you needed for at least one of the boxers themselves to be in on it. Now they're just trying to steal fights with no help from either of the fighters, and everybody on the planet can see the fix is in and that the rigging involves only the judges.

The only way boxing saves itself at this point is if they overturn this obviously paid for decision or rule it a no-contest. This fight was much too high profile for this to just pass. After 30+ years as an avid fight fan, and thousands of fights watched, I'm done with it. I may tune in if this fight makes it to HBO just to see for myself how terrible the decision was, but I won't watch any more live fights... it's just not worth it when the chances are now very good that somebody will get screwed over and ruin it for you.

I think Pac is overrated and Mayweather would beat him, but I watched the fight, and yea it was a pretty good fight but I'll admit it looked like Pac was in control of the fight the whole time.
I'll just regress, because I feel I've made myself perfectly redundant.

I look forward to watching the HBO replay this week.  Right when it was starting to look like boxing might have some life, the sport points a .357 to its head.  What a shame

Yes indeed. Boxing is tying its own noose. I gave up a few years, back, and it use to be huge. They were having enough trouble keeping up with UFC, but this hurts them a lot.

They have to talk about a rematch if only to dream about the dream matchup again.

The sad thing is this really hurts the casual boxing fan (including me) because I'll never pay for a PPV because of what I saw last night.

Sad for boxing.  I didn't see it yet; I'll watch the replay, too.
