LAS VEGAS — For much of his welterweight title defense on Saturday, Manny Pacquiao heard from the MGM Grand crowd a unified sound rarely belted at his boxing matches. As Pacquiao and Shane Mosley tapped gloves, made small talk and generally engaged in a glorified sparring session, the crowd, once rowdy, once standing, once into it, simply booed.

When it ended, Pacquiao (53-3-2), the winner by unanimous decision, hung his head in victory. He did not look happy. Neither did the crowd.

Pacquiao counts “I want to entertain the fans” among his favorite phrases, and for much of the bout, he tried. He knocked down Mosley (46-7-1-1) in the third round and stalked him throughout. But this felt more like a first date than a typical night featuring Pacquiao’s furious fists. He retained his World Boxing Organization belt, but without the usual panache.
