UFC President Dana White attended Saturday’s lopsided victory by Manny Pacquiao over a clearly-outmatched Oscar De La Hoya in Las Vegas, then discussed the event with Yahoo! Sports:

“Did you see the production? And that was HBO. Maybe they should give us some of their Emmys. The pacing was awful. There was no energy in the crowd. They had to loop Pacquiao’s music when he came out because he had to walk so far.

“I love boxing as a sport and I came from boxing, but this was a bad day for boxing. [Floyd] Mayweather’s probably running out of money and will probably return to face Pacquiao, and I’d pick Mayweather in that one, but nobody is going to draw like De La Hoya does.”
