MAYWEATHER-PACQUINO WINNER DECIDED BY POLITICS?

Mayweather outscored Pacquiao in the super fight, 118-110, 116-112, and 116-112, to unify the WBA (Super), WBC, WBO and The RING Magazine welterweight titles.
Contrary to what the scorecards show, former world heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield thinks Manny Pacquiao is the rightful winner of the super fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Holyfield sees it coming down to straight politics unfortunately, and that’s kind of disappointing.
He said it was Pacquiao who brought the action to Mayweather, whom he accused of running for most part of the bout. 
  • According to Holyfield it was Pacquiao who brought the action to Mayweather, whom he accused of running for most part of the bout.
  • From Holyfield’s perspective, the judges should have scored the bout in favor of the aggressor. And in the case of the “Fight of the Century” he thinks the aggressor is Pacquiao. 
  •  “The fact of the matter, you're the more aggressive one, you hit him with the shots... Pacquiao seem to hit him (Mayweather) more times than he hit Pacquiao,” said the four-time heavyweight king.
  • Holyfield dared Floyd Mayweather Jr. to face Manny Pacquiao in a rematch.
  • Holyfield, best known for his showdowns with fellow stars Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis during the last glory days of the heavyweight division, warned Mayweather that not fighting Pacquiao would result in a big asterisk in his legacy.
  •  "If Floyd retires without doing the super fight with Manny Pacquiao then I wouldn't think of him as a champion. Champions accept any fight put in front of them. But if Mayweather does the fight – win or lose – he will be an all time great and a true champion in my book,” he recently wrote in a Facebook post, as reported by Scoop Malinowski of ringobserver.com.
If that scenario were to play out, Holyfield doesn't believe Mayweather would call it quits on his career, which would mean another fight -- with millions upon millions of dollars at stake -- could potentially be on the horizon.
According to Holyfield, that's just how the system is set up.
