We all waited for five years to watch what's has been dubbed as #TheFightOfTheCentury. But as it turned out, the result was not fair what Pacquiao fans were hoping for. Boo!

We know you are still weeping together with the rest of the nation but were you still able to tune in after they awarded Mayweather the WBC belt or did you just turn off your TV because of disgust? If you did the latter and got into a self-imposed news blackout, we tell you this: A lot of interesting #PacMay-related stuff still happened after the final bell!

Lucky for you, we rounded up all the really juicy ones fight fans will want to know about. Read on, fellas!


FREDDIE ROACH WANTS A REMATCH

Freddie Roach wants a rematch of the superbout. The 55-year-old American trainer said he’s proud of Manny’s performance but is also frustrated because his fighter was not able to throw his best punches because Money was always running around like a scared chicken.

"We'd love to do it again, but hopefully that's in the future," Roach said during the post-fight press conference. The question is, kakagat ba sila Mayweather? It's looking bleak but though; you'll know why in a bit.

PACQUIAO INJURED HIS RIGHT SHOULDER BEFORE THE FIGHT

Our Pambansang Kamao fought with an injured right shoulder, says Roach, which prevented him from implementing his game plan to the hilt. According to the award-winning trainer, Manny got the injury after he threw a right hand punch in one of his sparring sessions.

Roach also expressed his dismay with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for preventing Pacquiao from taking an anti-inflammatory shot that would've helped make the pain more bearable. However, NSAC chairman Francisco Aguilar said it's Pacquiao’s fault for not mentioning his injury earlier. Blame game, anyone?

MAYWEATHER SR. SAYS NO TO REMATCH

Floyd Mayweather Sr. said it isn’t necessary to have a rematch because Pacquiao would never beat his son anyway.

"Believe me because one thing he doesn’t have is, he doesn’t have this," the older Mayweather said while pointing to his head. (Yeah! Pacquiao absolutely got no wrinkles! #ThankYouBelo)

Meanwhile, his son says it's too early to talk about a rematch. 

"Can I enjoy my victory, please?," Mayweather said. "All I wanna do is go home and rest."

IT'S NOT ONLY MAYWEATHER AND CO. WHO'S ANTI-REMATCH...

Princess Pacquiao said she’s okay if her father continues his boxing career, but she doesn’t want a Mayweather rematch because she doesn't like Floyd so much. The 8-year-old daughter of Pacquiao also commended his dad for a job well done, despite the loss. Aww...

"At least, daddy tried his best to win. He’s not doing this for us naman. He’s doing this for the Lord. Daddy has one scar but it’s okay that he got hurt because that was just a little scratch. At least it’s not big," she said. Amen!

MOMMY D COMPARES MAYWEATHER TO A RAT

But despite her son’s loss, she is happy because many boxing fans continue to support Manny. She also reiterated that she wants his son to retire from boxing.

"DISRESPECTFUL" INTERVIEWER BUSTED

"I thought I won the fight," Manny told HBO interviewer Max Kellerman after the boxer was asked how he felt about the result. But Kellerman’s response did not sit well with Pacquiao fans. He seemingly tried to persuade Pacquiao into admitting that he deserved to lose.

Hours after his interview, he even tweeted: "The fight was competitive during some stretches, but ultimately not close. I had it 9-3." As expected, Pac-Man's supporters became angrier and laid the virtual, verbal smackdown on him on social media. 

Check out the patience-testing interview below:

ZERO CRIME RATE NO MORE
