At last. After five years of posturing, pondering and plenty of verbal sparring, Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao finally step into the ring on May 2 (US time) for what is being billed as the “Fight of the Century”. And it’s easy to see why.
The super fight features two of the finest boxers of this, or any, generation and is destined to be the most lucrative ever, generating an eye-watering $350 million-plus in revenue. Host venue, the 16,800-capacity MGM Grand Garden Arena, sold out within seconds; hotel rooms on the famous Las Vegas strip within minutes.
