Boxing fans were left angry when it emerged they wouldn't be able to record Tyson Fury's heavyweight showdown against Deontay Wilder despite paying for it through BT Sport's Box Office channel.
Manny Pacquiao, who has won world titles in eight weight classes, added on the social networking site: "Respect to Fury for sticking to his game plan and to Wilder for closing the gap with two huge knockdowns!"
With Ricky Hatton and Freddie Roach joining trainer Ben Davison in the corner, Fury defied his lack of action - he had fought just 14 rounds since that famous night against Klitschko in Dusseldorf - to impress from the opening bell.
Judge Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112 for Fury, while Alejandro Rochin favored Wilder 115-111.
Fury's match-up with Wilder is one of the most anticipated fighters in recent times, with both arriving at the Staples Center in Los Angeles undefeated.
Both men weren't overly upset by the verdict after a compelling bout in front of a frenzied Hollywood crowd. "I was never going to be knocked out tonight". "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again". I was too hesitant. I went to Germany to fight [Wladimir] Klitschko, and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder.
With just two minutes left in the fight, Wilder buckled Fury's knees with a right hand and knocked him senseless with a flawless left on the way down. "In a rematch, I can only imagine that he will be even better prepared".
"No wonder AJ didn't want no part of that right hand!" American Hurd got his back off the ropes to land a crippling body shot.
It was not just the boxing world that was enthralled by what happened at the Staples Center, though. Fury used his twitchy movement and near-constant feints to disrupt the rhythm of Wilder, whose trademark looping punches rarely found their mark.
The opening rounds were to Fury's liking.
A right hand stung Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs), 33, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, midway through the seventh round.
It wasn't until the ninth round that Wilder landed a heavy blow.
The punch wasn't the biggest of the fight, but Fury was stunned - and he responded by getting up and raising his aggression in an exciting round. Fury crumbled onto his back, completely out.
The fight attracted the celebrity attention expected in Hollywood from actors and athletes alike.
"Well the future of boxing is brighter because the heavyweight division right now is so vibrant".
