  • Floyd Mayweather V Manny Pacquiao - Saturday 2nd May 2015

    So with the announcement on Friday from both parties the fight has been given a green light!

    > Set to be the biggest grossing sports event in history. The night is expected to bank around $250m (£160m)
    > The fight will take place at the MGM Grand. According to reports the MGM Grand sold out of all rooms within 3 minutes of the fight being announced.
    > The fight has been 5 years in the making.



    Mayweather shared the signed contract on his website



    This may of been long in the making and well as to far over due in almost everyone's opinions. With some people hinting this may not be such as a eventful night as if it was to happen 5 years ago as both close to reaching the 40 mark. Regardless, this should still be an eventful night and surely one to make a mark in sport/boxing history. Mayweather's camp has done most of the organising for the event with himself commanding a 60-40 split of the purse, but I don't think Pacquiao will be sobbing over his cut as I'll explain why in due course. Both fighters are regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, in their weights categories respectfully. They most known to us for their victorious fights against Ricky Hatton, Pacquiao in 2009 knocked him out in the 2nd round with a brutal knock out. Mayweather fought him in 2007 with the fight stopped in 10th round in 2007.



    Mayweather (Money) last fought when he beat Marcus Maidana in the pairs rematch last September.

    > Mayweather is unbeaten in all 47 fight
    > Mayweather is guaranteed to earn a minimum of $150m (£96m)



    Pacquiao (Pac-Man) was last in action last in action when he dominated Chris Algieri last November.
    Pacquaiao's share will be at least $100 (£64m)

    > Out of Pacquiao's 64 fights he has 57 wins, 38 by knockout, 2 draws and 5 losses.

    Here is also a pic of how much going to watch it costs, so if you plan to go.... You best get a loan out.



    So with all this being said, who's is everyone's money on? I'm rooting for Pacquiao but I'm sure the fight is swaying in Mayweather's favour.

              Pacman has never faced anybody like mayweather either because he one of the best ever. Pacquiao has fought marquez 4 times, all been close and arguably lost them all, mayweather took marquez to school, he didnt even win a round. He stepped up to middleweight against alvarez and dominated him as well, the man is on a different planet to pacman, pacman is done and even in his prime mayweather wins the fight all day long

                Unless pacman knocks out mayweather within the first 5 rounds, mayweather will have adapted and start picking pacman apart with his good defence an counter punches.

                  Nah Pac-Man in his prime was batter then Mayweather! That's why Mayweather ran scared the first time round. How come most of boxings greats consider Pacquiao to be one of the greatest ever with 5 losses and the unbeaten Mayweather don't even get a mention?

                    Agree mate! Floyd bottled it in pacs prime an that's why the fight is happening now! In terms of records I hope money wins but wouldn't mind someone beating his rich *** ha either way, both off them are laughing to the bank anyway.

                      We agree to disagree then lad, ive personally never rated pacqauio and making a statement like boxing greats consider pacman in top 5 ever, who are these greats? Mayweather is widely regarded the best of his generation and has been for a long time regarded the best pound for pound fighter on the planet. Pacquaio has lost 5 times and drawn twice and struggled in other fights were he has been given decision arguably. We will see on May 2nd i suppose.

                        I agree with you buddy manny is a decent boxer but far from a great and doubt he will ever be regarded as one of the greats but mayweather as arrogant as he is imo and boxing fans around the world and boxers and leading lights in the boxing world state that he is one of the greats of all time

                          People dont like mayweather for the way he flaunts his money etc thats why he maybe not as popular as pacman but as boxers they on a different planets of ability and class, mayweather makes class acts look average because he is that good. He also isnt great to watch unlike manny but again its because he that good lol Ive been watching boxing for about 20 years and ive never seen anybody even close to mayweather, he is by far the best ive ever seen and he would give any of the legends of the past a proper test

                            Everyone to there own opinion Seen a fair few Boxing documentary's where Pacquiao is considered an all time boxing great for being the only 8 weight world champion ever! Most people rate Mayweather because he's undefeated but Sugar Ray Robinson lost 19 times but is up there with Ali! I don't mean to sound like a **** just love a boxing debate
