On the other hand, some celebrities were dismayed by the judges' unanimous decision, believing that Floyd "underperformed" for what was supposed to be the fight of the century.
I thought it was a close fight... But definitely not what the scorecard showed. Mayweather may have… https://t.co/0ImqufkCSX— Sam Milby (@samuelmilby) May 3, 2015
In the end, we still have high regard & respect for the one and only people's champ! Everyone inside that arena knows the truth. #MayPac— Raymond Gutierrez (@mondgutierrez) May 3, 2015
Folks don't feel too bad for Manny's loss. He wasn't in the ring with a real fighter.— Sam Concepcion (@sam_concepcion) May 3, 2015
On a lighter note, other celebrities shared witty tweets on Manny and Floyd's headlocks and huggers during the match.
