Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight Reimagined as ‘Punch-Out’ (Video)


I think most people would agree that Saturday’s Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was far less exciting than any video game, let alone the lofty Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out for NES. Nonetheless, it’s pretty fun to watch the fighters’ 8-bit representations speak candidly about the death of boxing while in their corners between rounds in this parody.

Is boxing dead? Probably not. But I’m guessing a bunch of casual fans will think twice before dropping $100 to watch a fight next time.

Here’s the clip, from the mind of, ahem, Noober Goober Gaming:

Well, at least this didn’t cost $100. And it was far more entertaining. And it didn’t put money in Floyd Mayweather’s pocket.

This parody clip is, in every way, superior to the fight on Saturday.
