imageLAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles) – Until last weekend, it was billed the ‘Fight of the Century.’ But days after the Pacquiao-Mayweather welterweight fight unfolded in Las Vegas, it is now being called names like ‘Scam of the Century,’ and ‘Scandal of the Century.’

Today, in an unprecedented  move, the Nevada Athletic Commission voided the unanimous decision win by Mayweather over Pacquiao.

“There’s just too many missteps leading to and during the fight and we cannot sit here and just do nothing,” Commission Chairman Francisco Aguilar told The Adobo Chronicles.

In voiding the fight results, Aguilar presented a laundry list of what went wrong:

  • The Pacquiao camp did not disclose the  Filipino boxer’s rotator cuff injury in the pre-fight medical questionnaire.
  • The Pacquiao camp alleged that Manny was denied a legal injection to relieve the pain from his injured shoulder.
  • In addition to filling out the  medical questionnaire, both Pacquiao and Mayweather should have been examined by an independent medical doctor.
  • While both boxers weighed under 147 pounds during the official weigh-in on Friday, Pacquiao and Mayweather weighed way over the welterweight maximum weight on Saturday.
  • The judges’ summary scoresheet was not filled out correctly, casting doubt on whether it was Mayweather or Pacquiao who scored higher.
  • There were more hugs than punches during the 12-round fight, especially by Mayweather.
  • Both camps violated a new commission rule that no celebrities are allowed as part of the boxers’ official entourage. Mayweather had Justin Bieber in his entourage while Pacquiao had late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.
  • Three national anthems were sung during the fight — U.S., Philippine and Mexican national anthems. The singing of the Mexican anthem misled many spectators and television viewers to think that Pacquiao was Mexican.

In addition, Aguilar said that numerous lawsuits  against Pacquiao, the boxing promoter and even the Nevada Athletic Commission have started to emerge, and “it is the commission’s responsibility to protect and preserve the integrity of professional boxing.”

  1. It was a fair contest but I do think mayweather’s rival should be given a chance of rematch….that’s if mayweather is not a caward….cos he will not always win forever


      1. 48-0 man aren’t boxing bout wins but a track and field records. He’s the only boxer I’ve seen that wins by out running his opponents not out punching. He chosed that style because he knew his limit in pound for pound bone crashing fight. I thought boxing before is mixed with wrestling and swagging but has ballet in it.that to floyd his greatest contribution. THE BEST EVER….LOL


  2. Idiots taking this seriously. It’s on a Damn satire news site. I bet even if they had printed the words parody in the background people would still believe it.


  3. sat·ire. ˈsaˌtī(ə)r/.(noun): the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.


  4. Adobochronicles is full of shit, an example of a misleading journalism.

    And you media person shout for justice pag tinambangan kayo ng mga tao na hina harass nyu.


    1. Satire news nga eh hahaha!

      Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement.


  5. There should also be rules against blogs/web sites that spread news that are not true or misleading just for the sake of them getting huge amount of viewers and not minding the effects of it on other people.
