VIDEO: The Punch-Out arcade game of Mayweather and Pacquiao was scarily accurate

It wasn't the hardest fight in the world to predict but this was bang on the money.

The classic Punch-Out boxing video game put together a retro version of how they saw the biggest fight of the century going on Saturday night and they got it down to a tee.

In a cool, nostalgic video, Noober Goober Gaming created a funny and knowledgeable prediction of Floyd Mayweather's win over Manny Pacquiao.

It starts with Money hugging the life out of Pac Man before 10 rounds of the Filipino chasing frantically after the American and not landing anything. By the time the 12th comes around, Pacquiao is spent and Mayweather hits him just once to win the fight.

"This must be really boring for the casual fans," the corner dialogue goes between rounds as if they had an actual flash forward to the post fight storm from the masses who seemed to have only watched Mayweather for the first time at the weekend.

"It doesn't matter, we already got their money," Floyd smiles.

"Boxing is dead," Manny takes a quote from GAA 101.

"It doesn't matter, we already got their money," Floyd smiles.

Great job, this is.
