This picture best sums up last night’s fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Marquez. This photo showcases both sides of the boxing spectrum, in the left corner you have the feeling of victory, and in the right corner you have the agony of defeat. Not only did this picture provide the best photo of the night, but it also caused quite a stir on twitter. Many users of the popular social networking site began to crack jokes at Pacquiao’s expense. While getting knocked is no fun, some of the jokes that were created from it were pretty amusing.  One twitter user said “I’m tired i hope i sleep like Pacquiao tonight”, while another said “I fell asleep and missed the dam fight last nite…its cool doe…i heard Pacquiao did too”. Even rapper Meek Mill chimed in with some of his own photoshopped pictures at Manny’s expense. The jokes may seem harsh, but when you’re a professional athlete in today’s society you must welcome the praise and the ridicule of being in the spotlight. In basketball, players will get harassed for days by their own teammates if they get dunked on, and in football teammates will often make fun of a player who got laid out after making sure he’s okay. It’s just apart of the sports culture, but whether it’s right is another topic. Scroll down to see Meek Mill’s pictures and let us know in the comments below if you find the Pacquiao jokes amusing or annoying.
