Floyd Mayweather won the much-hyped welterweight title fight against Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night, and while the fans made it clear he’s not the people’s champion, the controversial fighter continues to revel in his financial glory.

“The check’s got nine figures on it, baby,” Mayweather bragged Sunday, waving a $100 million check he received after improving to 48-0 with his unanimous decision. He is expected to earn as much as $80 million more after the pay-per-view revenue is tallied. The pay-per-view push was so strong Saturday night that the fight was delayed about 30 minutes so cable operators could process all the late orders.

Mayweather, who was booed heavily before, during and after the fight, has come under fire for his history of domestic abuse — he served two months in jail for a 2010 attack on the mother of his child — and his generally obnoxious behavior.

Mayweather showed gratitude toward the judges who awarded him a unanimous decision, acknowledging the crowd was against him despite the fight taking place in his adopted hometown of Las Vegas.

“I know the judges weren’t going by the crowd screaming,” he said. “The judges were going by shots landed.”

Mayweather was criticized for lacking aggression in Saturday’s bout and failing to entertain those who shelled out $100 to watch the fight on TV. Pacquiao’s camp accused Mayweather of running away and avoiding confrontation. The fans seemed to agree.

“It doesn’t matter who I fight,” Mayweather responded. “It’s just like when I fought Ricky Hatton and knocked out Ricky Hatton, they still booed me. So it’s what I’m used to.”

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn announced Sunday that they are no longer dating due in part to the demands of their schedules.

Woods has been visible supporting Vonn at her ski races, and Vonn likewise attended Woods’ golf matches, including an appearance at the Masters last month.

Wrote Vonn on Facebook: After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.

Woods issued a similar statement on his website: Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating. I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I’ll always cherish our time together. She has been amazing with Sam and Charlie and my entire family. Unfortunately, we lead very hectic lives and are both competing in demanding sports. It’s difficult to spend time together.

— A riot during a soccer match in Poland on Saturday ended with one man dead and 14 police injured.

With Concordia Knurow trailing 4-1 in the first half of its lower-league match against visiting Ruch Radzionkow, frustrated supporters of the home team threw fireworks, started fights and invaded the field.

Police fired rubber bullets at the fans in an effort to separate the fighting factions, and a 27-year-old man was struck on the neck. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital, where the fans continued to riot, throwing rocks and incendiary devices.

“Molotov cocktails, stones and other things were thrown towards the officers,” police spokesman Andrzej Gaska said. “Fourteen officers were wounded during the incident and several aggressive people were detained.

I don’t need to miss any games. I realize my importance to my team. It didn’t hurt anyway. If it hurt … I didn’t even feel it.

In the richest fight in the history of boxing, Floyd Mayweather improved to 48-0 after beating Manny Pacquiao on points Saturday night.

Two ringside judges scored the fight 116-112, while the other ruled it 118-110.

Mayweather was able to use his superior reach for much of the fight to fend off the smaller Pacquiao, who ended up chasing his opponent for much of the fight.

“I take my hat off to Manny Pacquiao. I see now why he is at the pinnacle of boxing,” Mayweather told reporters. “I knew he was going to push me, win some rounds. I wasn’t being hit with a lot of shots until I sit in a pocket and he landed a lot of shots.”

It was disclosed after the decision that Pacquiao was participating in the fight with an injured right shoulder, which he damaged around March 11 (according to promoter Bob Arum). The Nevada boxing commissioners didn’t allow Pacquiao to take an anti-inflammatory shot prior to the fight.

“The ruling tonight affected the outcome of the fight,” Arum told the media.
