Admit it: You thought the #PressConOfTheCentury would feature an entire smorgasbord of trash-talking to keep us entertained through the still weeks-long wait for the actual Mayweather vs. Pacquiao ring date.

We saw how both fighters dissed each other through the years. So we had reason to think that it would be the same in their only face-to-face meeting until fight week. Heck, we even tried to predict what mean words they were going to try and tell to each other's faces.

Instead, we woke up at 4 a.m. to catch the usually brash Floyd Mayweather in the most pleasant of moods, and a Manny Pacquiao that was more or less in his best behavior.

Definitely not what we expected.

Just what did we expect? Here's a list!

After a harmless press con as this one, we think we can all agree on one thing: We like it more when Floyd ain't being classy! Here's to hoping that the fight will be far more exciting than this one!
