The supposed “Fight of the Century” between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao disappointed lots of fans while costing them lots of money.
On the bright side, though, it did produce one awesome by-product.
Just hours after the May 2 superfight that saw Mayweather emerge victorious in 12 captivating but mostly uneventful rounds, the YouTube channel Noober Goober Gaming decided to put a 16-bit spin on the bout in an homage to the Nintendo classic “Punch Out!!”
This video pretty much covers everything, from Mayweather’s absurd list of demands leading up to the fight to his calculated strategy of just kind of standing there while Pacquiao expended all his energy trying to land punches.
The best part? While fans shelled out $100 or much more to watch the actual fight, this three-minute clip is free! If only this version had aired Saturday night instead.
