This weekend, boxing's "The Fight of the Century" - Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao - disappointed a lot of fans who waited five years for the fight to happen, but sadly, it's not worth the hype. Mayweather's style of running, ducking, and hugging wasn't exciting to watch, and I thought the judges were biased. Boxing is now a dead sport.

As a tribute to that fight, Noober Goober Gaming has created an amusing retro-style video pitting the two fighters in classic NES game Punch-Out. It pretty much sums up the fight: Mayweather running around to keep himself distant from Pacquiao's aggressive South Paw style and hugging when the Filipino fighter gets too close. At least, this was more entertaining. Watch the video below.
