Former 8-division world champion Manny Pacquiao praised both former nemesis Floyd Mayweather Jr. and MMA champion Conor McGregor for their performance in their junior-middleweight showdown in Las Vegas on Saturday (Sunday morning, Manila).

"Respect to McGregor for taking a chance, but congrats to Floyd on 50," Pacquiao tweeted, referring to Mayweather's 50-0 career record after the American boxer's win over McGregor.

Pacquiao watched the fight and tweeted his insights through social media, but those posts were later taken down.

Mayweather defeated McGregor via technical knockout in the 10th round.

Meanwhile, other local sports personalities also reacted on Mayweather's win.
