MANILA, Philippines ¬ó HBO boxing commentator Max Kellerman addressed criticisms that he treated Filipino champion fighter Manny Pacquiao rudely in interviewing him after the right.

Kellerman was stormed with comments on Twitter scoring his manner of questioning Pacquiao, who said he believed he defeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Sunday in Las Vegas.

But the sports host is not one to keep silent.

"[To] Manny Pacquiao fans: I love Manny," Kellerman said on his account. "He's a pleasure to deal with and to watch fight."

He also explained why he had to push the fighter to explain his opinion.

"Manny disagreed with [the] judges. Had to ask him about it," Kellerman added.

In another post, the sports talk show host argued Mayweather emerged the clear winner.

The judges gave the bout to Mayweather by a relatively wide margin of 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112. But other observers say Pacquiao won more rounds than the scores show.

For Kellerman, the fight was "competitive during some stretches, but ultimately not close."

He also thinks Mayweather dominated nine rounds of twelve.

Pacquiao, for his part, said he thought he won the fight, pursuing the undefeated American around the ring while Mayweather kept him at bay.

"It's not easy to throw and land when we are moving around," Pacquiao said in the interview with Kellerman.
