Yeah, we know, it sucks.
Cleary, Money May's elite defense (and superb hugging skills) won him the fight. He also effectively nailed the PacMan with his accurate counter-punching and lead jabs. Manny didn't roll over though; he certainly had some moments during the match but Mayweather's defensive wizardry and hit-and-run/let-me-hug-you-like-I-love-you strategy proved too much for our Pambansang Kamao.
As expected with a fight of this magnitude, social media exploded. Spectators watching it live at the MGM Grand Casino or on pay-per-view took to Twitter and conveyed their thoughts about the Mayweather-Pacquiao hug-a-thon, este, boxing match.

Here's boxing legend and icon of badassery, Mike Tyson, sharing some pointers on how Manny could've won the fight:
Floyd dictating fight right now. Manny can't stay in center of ring. He's got to jab. #MayPac— Mike Tyson (@MikeTyson) May 3, 2015
Man, Iron Mike's really not impressed.
Boxing's Golden Boy, Oscar Dela Hoya, understands half the pain we're feeling. No, it's not because he's a Spurs' fan.
Sorry boxing fans.— Oscar De La Hoya (@OscarDeLaHoya) May 3, 2015
Well, the HOF-er has a point:
Im just not into the boxing, running style. I like jumping out of my seat because a fight was existing and the fans got their money's worth.— Oscar De La Hoya (@OscarDeLaHoya) May 3, 2015
Former heavyweight champ and grill master, George Foreman, believes that both fighters came out as a winner.

These may be the only One Direction lyrics we'll ever approve of:
Mayweather has one fight left. This fellow right here might get that slot. #StylesMakeFights

Seems like all that hugging reminded comedian/rapper Donald Glover of his not-so-happy childhood. Everything's going to be okay, bro!
Mayweather has hugged Manny more times than my dad has hugged me my whole life— childish gambino (@DonaldGloverrr) May 3, 2015
We hope that cheers you up, our sulking boxing bros.
