Though another victory for the Pacman, the entire matchup pretty much made me fall asleep again. I still await for a Pacquiao matchup that is worth watching and worthy enough to be remembered as one of the most memorable fights in boxing history.
I admit that I expected this match as one of those fights but to no avail, it ended up like Pac’s matchup against Joshua Clottey sometime awhile ago. It felt like Pac was chasing Mosely rather than getting into an intense duel bout between two respected fighters (and they’re both respected since there’s no trash talk exchanged unlike someone I know of). The final rounds really ran out of gas and I wasn’t the only one who felt that way. The endless booing of the spectators pretty much expressed what I was feeling back then.
And then, there was Showtime PPV instead of the usual HBO PPV. I don’t know but the sportscasters were not as hyped in terms of reporting than the ones from HBO. I miss Michael Buffer’s “Let’s get ready to RUMBLE!!!!” Signature. I guess I’m just used to HBO so…
One little final word before I sign off. LL Cool J, even if you rooted for Mosely, you’re still respected and still one of my fave celebrities. No cockiness needed indeed.
