Last Saturday, millions placed their bets – and lost – on the "fight of the century" when Floyd Mayweather Jr. beat Manny Pacquiao, including that of an international leader.
Passionate about Pacquiao, Hun Sen, the Prime Minister of Cambodia, is now refusing to pay up on a $5,000 bet he made, believing the fight wasn't judged fairly.
According to The Cambodia Daily newspaper, Hun Sen in a speech Monday criticized the match's result, saying that Mayweather only won as it was assessed solely by U.S. judges, on U.S. ground. No further comments beyond the wager's amount were given in the report.
At the ceremony of National Road 55, in Pursat Province, Mr Hun Sen, commented on how different each boxer's techniques was, with Mayweather "just running around – blocking and avoiding" whilst Pacquiao remained in fighting spirit by throwing punches continuously.
As a result, Mr Hun Sen said he would not pay up, after making the $5,000 bet on Pacquiao to win, suggesting a rematch on fair ground – China – should take place.
"Now if we are talking about yesterday's fight, I owe you, but I will not pay."
"Pacquiao doesn't need to get disappointed because it's an injustice created by judges," he said. "If I were Floyd, I would consider (the match) a draw," Mr Hun Sen added, according to the Cambodian news source.
Mr Hun Sen then went on to add how he wants an explanation for Mayweather's win from the judges, claiming that they made "a winner become a loser."
The political leader wasn't the only one to feel like it wasn't a fair fight. Fans watching from the Philippines and Cambodia thought Pacquiao had won as well, including fan, Tim Leng, who told The Cambodia Daily that "the result is biased in favor of Floyd because I and others saw that Manny Pacquiao was chasing from the first round until the end."
Victor Cui, CEO of ONE Championship, told CNBC Asia Squawk Box that whilst he believed it was scored right, Asia is "hungry for heroes it can call its own."
