One of the most anticipated boxing match-ups in history is finally going down after years of doubt and rumours.
Undefeated Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather will take on arguably the only guy in the world that can beat him, Manny Pacquiao, in a Las Vegas showdown that will cost a whopping £160 million.
It’s been reported that Pacquiao has signed his half of the contract and a signature from Floyd is imminent. The reported date for the showdown is May. The setting? None other than the historic MGM Grand.
The odds-on favourite is clearly Floyd Mayweather, who has remained undefeated for an entire pro career spanning 20 years. Manny, on the other hand, has suffered 2 defeats in his past 5 bouts.
But, Pacquiao still boasts an impressive 57–5–2 record, has won his last 3 and for years has been the only boxer on anyone’s lips when faced with the question “Who can beat Mayweather?”.
One thing is for sure, there will be fireworks.
