After Saturday’s fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr., which saw Mayweather win by unanimous decision, former heavyweight and cruiserweight champion Evander Holyfield told ESPN’s Robert Flores that he actually thought Pacquiao won Saturday’s fight.
Holyfield was asked if he had Pacquiao winning that fight, to which Holyfield responded by saying he did, reasoning that since Pacquiao landed more punches and neither boxer got hurt bad, he was the winner.
“Well, I actually thought he did. The fact of the matter is you are the most aggressive one, you hitting him with shots. He was the one blocking shots. Pacquiao seemed to hit him more times than he hit Pacquiao. Didn’t nobody hurt each other real bad but the fact of the matter is if don’t nobody hurt each other bad and one guy is throwing the most punches, then how do you score the card?”
