If Saturday’s historic fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were a Facebook popularity contest, then the 47-0 Mayweather might just stay undefeated.

Facebook unveiled a series maps Wednesday showing which countries’ Facebook users have “liked” each boxer’s official Facebook page the most, and most of the world’s countries are on team Mayweather. Meanwhile, Pacquiao’s biggest fan bases are in Southeast Asia and in parts of the Middle East, as shown in the map below:
