Shortly after Floyd Mayweather scored a decision victory over Manny Pacquiao last night in Las Vegas, Nevada, in what many felt was a relatively boring fight, Oscar De La Hoya took to Twitter to apologize to the fans who paid upwards of $100 to order it on pay-per-view.
And Paul Heyman immediately called him out for it.
"@OscarDeLaHoya Sorry boxing fans." ... Spoken like a true bitter old timer who didn't get to the BIG payday like these two. STFU Oscar!— Paul Heyman (@HeymanHustle) May 3, 2015
Was the fight boring? You could certainly argue as much, and there's no questioning that it didn't live up to the massive hype surrounding it. Still, it accomplished what it was supposed to and both guys got paid a ton of money for it.
To that end, you can't argue with Heyman here.
Then again, can you argue with this either?
Call me old school but I like the fans getting their money's worth by watching an action packed fight.— Oscar De La Hoya (@OscarDeLaHoya) May 3, 2015
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
You decide who is right here.
