Not only does Sir Lewis Hamilton invest his time competing in races on the grids, but he also has an enthusiasm in a variety of other sports. The Briton was present in the ringside viewing areas for some of the most significant money bouts in the history of boxing. In 2015, he was in the audience for the welterweight championship fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The Mercedes driver believes that despite paying such careful attention to the game, he did not pick up any useful information, and as a result, some dialogues of Lewis Hamilton on Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao became a masterpiece.
Floyd managed the pace and distance of the battle more effectively than his opponent, giving him the advantage. In spite of Mayweather’s brilliant performance, which earned him a unanimous decision victory in the fight, the Mercedes driver was of the view that the fight should not have been stopped.
Lewis Hamilton was dissatisfied with the conclusion and believed the judges may have arrived at a different decision. In addition, the British racing legend also expressed that he was seated in one of the nicest places there, which was an incredible experience but after a while, the battle didn’t end up being up to the mark under any circumstances.
In a humorous discussion of what he had taken away from a more than $700 million battle, the seven time world champion in Formula One asserted that he has not really acquired anything from Mayweather and Manny, aside from the fact that they wear far wider celebrities than him in many aspects.
The Billion Dollar Man of Formula One chimed in with the chorus of naysayers and after what he considered to have been the “warm-up,” he lamented that everyone went out from that boxing event. Furthermore, Lewis didn’t have the night he was hoping for, but he did meet someone who looked like him at that event and if Pacquiao had been able to counter Mayweather’s strategic maneuvers, it appears that Lewis would have had a better time at the Grand Saturday night.
During an interview before the 2015 Spanish Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton discussed his thoughts and feelings over the historic boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Then he said, “I felt Pacquiao won. He was the attacking one. I felt I had more similarities with him, watching his style, I was thinking he’s the attacking guy, he’s out there, he’s hungry. He wants it more than anything.”
Lewis Hamilton is now in sixth place, which indicates that he is not having a stellar season, but his colleague is enjoying a phenomenal year so far. The driver of the #44 vehicles have been on the receiving end of a lot of bad luck so far this season. Next season, both Team Mercedes and its devoted followers will be rooting for their horned beast to stage a successful return.
