While many years have passed ducking each other for this matchup, the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight is now set to come to fruition. Some are calling it the fight of the century.
The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao boxing event will take place on May 2, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena of the MGM Grand Las Vegas, located in Paradise, Nevada.
For fans on both sides of the ring of this 12-round battle, this matchup is set to lay to rest any assertions about which fighter is the best. It’s been a long-awaited battle – at least five years in the making – and one many fans thought they would never see happen.
That’s just one reason why it’s so important to treat this highly anticipated boxing event with the fanfare it deserves by booking a private jet to the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao 2015 fight.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather
Each fighter brings an impressive record into the ring. Mayweather has a 47 – 0 record that includes 26 KOs and is ranked number 1 in The Ring’s pound-for-pound ratings, according to Forbes.
Some believe Mayweather may have an uphill battle for this fight when compared to others in the past. Despite this, Huffington Post reports that odds are 2.5 – 1 in favor of Mayweather in this bout, which is expected to break all manner of financial records. The Huffington Post also reports that Mayweather stands to earn at least $120 million of the purse split, while Pacquiao’s will likely end up in the neighborhood of $80 million.
Known for taking the fight outside of the ring long before the match begins, with remarks and press junket jabs, Mayweather has kept his comments more subdued to date in the lead in to the May 2 bout – even going so far as to praise Pacquiao and his accomplishments. He also acknowledges that this fight is a challenge despite making one verbal jab in reference to Pacquiao’s previous losses compared to his unblemished record.
Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao
While not undefeated, Manny Pacquiao still presents an impressive 57-5-2 record that includes 38 knockouts. According to Forbes, he’s rank 3 in The Ring’s pound-for-pound ratings.
While he made a point of praising God for the opportunity to fight, Pacquiao is not mincing words when it comes to his belief in his abilities to win this fight. In fact, USA Today’s For The Win quotes him as Tweeting: “Everyone had me as a big underdog to @OscarDeLaHoya too. If @FloydMayweather fights me boxing will get an even bigger upset victory.”
