All three judges were unanimous on awarding Mayweather the win over Pacquiao in what was dubbed the boxing fight of the century played on Saturday night.

But all three seemed to have had Mayweather marked in the wrong corner, putting in to question whether it truly was his win.

Conspiracy theorists now believe that it was Pacquiao who should have been the winner of the match as the three judges marked Mayweather in the red corner, when in fact it was Pacquiao who was in the red corner.

Judges Glenn Feldman and Burt Clements both gave Mayweather victory by 116-112, with Dave Moretti awarding Mayweather two extra points, scoring it at 118-110.

Conspiracy buffs and social media users are claiming that Mayweather won by wrongdoing, and perhaps that the game was predetermined, but there is no evidence to support any such claims on the part of the judges.

The win against Pacquiao raised Mayweather’s impressive undefeated career record to 48-0.
