Mayweather vs Pacquiao: Full fight video (in Punch-Out form)

Floyd Mayweather's performance probably didn't create a new generation of boxing fans.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Floyd Mayweather's win over Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night has pissed people off. It has also in turn pissed off hardcore boxing fans who are pissed off at all these casual fans who are pissed off about what was subjectively a pretty boring fight to a lot of the audience who ordered it.

"What did you expect?" we say to them. "Did you buy the hype? Hahaha, you idiot! That's how it always is!"

Then they go, like, "Well that's why I don't watch this stupid ass sport," and then we reply, "Well you didn't watch Matthysse-Provodnikov so I hope you get run over by a bus anyway, get out of here, this is my clubhouse, you motherf

And on and on it goes, as it has for years, as it will for the foreseeable future. But I don't think one needs to be a "hater" to appreciate the simplistic humor of Floyd Mayweather's Punch-Out from Noober Goober Gaming:

Sure, this ignores that Mayweather landed 148 punches to Pacquiao's 81, threw more punches than Pacquiao, and that Pacquiao's attacks weren't exactly inspiring, but in a very basic way, it is funny, and whether right or wrong, this is how a lot of people saw the fight.
