Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. clash on May 2

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. clash

The biggest fight the world has waiting for are about to happen between the two greatest puncher, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the MGM Grand in Las Vega.

That fight will be the biggest boxing match ever, the fight is worth $250 million. Mayweather agreed to a 60-40 split an estimates of no less than $120 million for the fight. Pacquiao will  get around $80 million.

“Manny is going to try to do what 47 before him failed to do, but he won’t be successful. He will be number 48,” Mayweather said. Floyd holding his WBC and WBA belts, and Pacquiao his WBO crown. 

Pacquiao has always been confident that the fight will take place, and in one of his tweets a few weeks ago, said he can “easily beat” Mayweather. Mayweather is 38 in two days and Pacquiao 36 last December.
However, on paper, Pacquiao is the older guy with more fights (57 wins, five losses and two draws with 38 knockouts) and tougher battles. Pacquiao will wear Cleto gloves and Mayweather has chosen Grant.
Showtime, for Mayweather, and HBO, for Pacquiao, will team up for the pay-per-view telecast which may cost at least $89 per household. There’s a sensitive issue regarding a rematch. No official word was said but insiders hinted that it only comes to play if Pacquiao wins on May 2.

Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, thinks that will be the case.“Floyd should enjoy being the A-Side while he can because on May 2 Manny is going to put him on his backside,” said Roach.
