Floyd Mayweather danced his way to a unanimous decision over frustrated Manny Pacquiao to win the richest fight in history and cement his place in the pantheon of boxing greats. Boos rang out from a pro-Pacquiao Las Vegas crowd as Mayweather's emphatic victory was confirmed by all three scorecards after 12 rounds of cat and mouse action. Mayweather comfortably outboxed his Filipino rival to snuff out any chance of the full-blooded slugfest that the more aggressive Pacquiao was hoping to ignite. The win extended Mayweather's remarkable 19-year unbeaten record to 48-0, putting him within one fight of equalling Rocky Marciano's legendary milestone of 49-0.

As calm gradually returned to the city, the governor of Maryland state urged residents to make Sunday a day of "prayer and peace". "I pray that tomorrow will be a day of reflection and will serve as a foundation for how we all conduct ourselves in the days and months to come," Governor Larry Hogan said in a statement.
Chris Paul scored an acrobatic basket with one second remaining as the Los Angeles Clippers stunned reigning champions the San Antonio Spurs 111-109 to advance to the next round of the NBA playoffs.

The dramatic final twist came after Spurs veteran Tim Duncan had levelled with free throws with just 8.8 seconds left. Paul gathered the ball in the half court, and eluded Danny Green before leaning away from Duncan to flick the ball in over both defenders to give the Clippers a sensational victory.
