After the ABC new channel posted on their Facebook page, that Floyd had won, the comments were hilarious. The viewers argued it wasn’t fair. Here is one of the comment:
Everyone has been coming up with their own conclusion. Was the unanimous result fair? We would never know. However, take a look at this interesting mail, Telegraph UK received post the match. A pledge for each fighter it would seem.
The Telegraph.Uk is also already running a poll on if there should be a rematch or not. Follow this link and cast your vote. Should there be a rematch? We cast our vote too, and 79% of voters definitely wanted a rematch.
According to what BBC news reported post the fight, Pacquiao’s fan in Philippines are also rooting for a rematch. But will there be a rematch after all?
As per the statement released by Manny Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum, immediately after the defeat to Floyd Mayweather, the Nevada State Athletic Commission refused to allow Pacquiao to have an injection into his shoulder which left him one-handed for the entire 12 rounds. The injury is supposed to be from his previous fight. This might mean that if ever there is a rematch, it will not be anytime soon!
