The most disappointing sporting event ever?

There was no way the hype could ever live up. It just couldn’t.

After months of build-up between two fighters years past their prime, Saturday night proved to be a $99 pay-per-view turd. 

Floyd Mayweather, predictably, won after a 12-round decision over Manny Pacquiao — the Las Vegas fight primarily more of a tap dance than a championship bout. 

Instead of a brawl full of vicious hits and, well, other brutal things boxers are supposed to do, we saw a lot of bouncing back and forth between the ropes and hugging. Literally both men walked away a little sweaty, and that’s it. 

Hilarity then ensued on Twitter as masses of ‘fans’ displayed their disappointment, many hash-tagging fights that are more exciting than the one they had just witnessed for $99: hockey brawls, Nolan Ryan vs. Robin Ventura … a Napoleon Dynamite scene

Here are the best reactions from celebs and athletes.

I guess this life-sized Pacquiao cake probably didn’t taste as good following the “fight of the century.”
