HBO announcer Max Kellerman earns ire of fans for questions to Pacquiao

Max Kellerman trended on twitter shortly after his post-fight interview with Manny Pacquiao following the boxer's unanimous decision loss against Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday (Sunday PHL time).

Pacquiao told him that he thought he won the fight, and Kellerman asked a follow-up question in a what sounded like a tone of disbelief: "You thought you won the fight? Why?"

Fans and other personalities took their rage to Twitter after the fight, catapulting Kellerman into the trending topics of the microblogging site in just a span of a few minutes.

Kellerman responded to the barrage of tweets and mentions by defending himself, saying that he loves Manny Pacquiao but he had to ask the Filipino ring icon to elaborate why he disagreed with the fight's judges.
