Pacquiao went in with a 59-5 record and has won world titles at eight different weights. The third man in the ring that night was referee Kenny Bayless, who is known for his famous instructions “What I say, you must obey” said at the beginning of every fight. Bayless has refereed some of the biggest fights in the last twenty years, including more than one hundred title fights. He explains what it was like to be in the ring for the Mayweather Vs. Pacquaio fight.
