ROUND 6 RECAP:
Higher output from Pacquiao here, as he again traps Mayweather against the ropes and unleashes some flurries. Though he doesn't land a ton clean in those attacks, he does get some nice shots in for the round. When Pacquiao is throwing a lot, he is finding some success. 10-9 Pacquiao, making it 58-56 Mayweather after 6
This fight is seven years in the making, with the top two fighters of the modern era finally meeting in the ring. Mayweather comes in undefeated. He is just three fights away from realizing his long stated goal of a 50-0 record. Pacquiao has a few losses under his belt, including a notable KO loss from 2 years back to Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao is 3-0 since that KO.
Most analysts favor Mayweather in the fight based primarily on his defensive skills. He was also the betting favorite, though not by a wide margin.
