The fight of the century is near. No matter how long it took this fight to get off the ground, it is finally coming. On May 2, Showtime and HBO will both broadcast the end all be all legacy fight between the undefeated Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. and the ferocious Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. The atmosphere in Vegas and around the world will be electric once the bell officially sounds. Mayweather and Pacquiao are the two best pound for pound pugilists of this era. Below is the first promo released for the upcoming mega fight. My fight predictions will come closer to fight time. Stay tuned. Who do you think will win?
Fight night is finally here. After months of anticipation and an exciting buildup courtesy of media press tours and Showtime’s All Access, tonight is where it all comes to a head at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Both Floyd Mayweather Jr and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez are undefeated but after tonight that will come to an end. Tomorrow morning many will either be talking about Alvarez shocking the world and the ultimate demise of Mayweather, or how a young hotshot pushed by Oscar De La Hoya failed to live up to the hype. Who will be the one?
