Mayweather vs Pacquiao
Once every blue moon, we get the chance to witness legendary fights in boxing. One for the books is definitely the fight in between Muhammad Ali a.k.a. “The Greatness” versus Joe “The Smokin” Frazier, in New York, at the Madison Square Garden, in 1971. The Greatness, in corner B, was undefeated with a record of 31–0 25Kos, who also had won his tittle belt against Sonny Liston. Meanwhile, in corner A, was the Smokin, with a record of 26–0 23Kos. A great fight it was, as it went for 15 rounds. Everyone had their money’s worth, if you ask me! This upcoming May 2nd, another legendary fight might unfold as two of the best boxers go head to head in a long overdue battle.
The undefeated champ Floyd “Money” Mayweather (47–0 26 Kos) goes against Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (57–5 38 Kos) on the biggest boxing stage at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. The upcoming fight will be the highest payed televised sport of all time. A total of 300 million dollars, without the number of views on PaperView, is reported to be earned for the fight. Mayweather will receive minimally 120 million for the fight and Pacquiao 80 million. In whoever’s favour this fight might go, that type of money is definitely not loser worth. They’ll both be winning!
