K-pop boy group EXO’s Baekhyun uploaded a poster of Mayweather and Pacquiao’s boxing match on Instagram, expressing regret that he could not attend the event in Las Vegas.

“I would like to watch it closer than through television ... but it’s too far,” Baekhyun said Sunday.

He said he supported both Pacquiao and Mayweather, calling the fight the “boxing match of the century” before the match started.

Unfortunately, the fight failed to meet expectations, with USA Today’s sports section calling it “a pay-per-snooze” and “a complete waste of everyone’s time and money.”

Manny Pacquiao suffered what some sports commentators declared an “inevitable defeat,” making way for Floyd Mayweather Jr. to pack his 48th victory as a still unbeaten champion. Pacquiao later blamed a shoulder injury for his defeat.

Baekhyun's girlfriend, Taeyeon of girl group SNSD, posted a photo she took from the event.
