The Mayweather-Pacquiao parody that was probably more exciting than the real thing

Floyd Mayweather produced a defensive masterclass in the early hours of this morning to defeat Manny Pacquiao in the "fight of the century".

Except many viewers seemed to find that Mayweather's clinical 12-round display made it fall short of that lofty description, instead branding it "boring" (although the purists may well disagree).

While the actual fight was being shown on pay-per-view television in the US (for a $99 fee), the Saturday Night Live show on NBC produced its own version featuring two "lookalikes" and Kenan (of Kenan & Kel fame) as the referee.

It only lasted four minutes, and if we're honest, was probably more exciting than the 45 minutes of watching "Money" and "Manny" dance around the ring.
