The Fight Of The Decade: Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao
One of the biggest fights in boxing history will occur this Saturday (May 2) at the MGM in Las Vegas. Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. will go head-to-head in what is being called one of the most anticipated fights in boxing history. Fans have been asking for this showdown for almost a decade.
At 36 years old, Pacquiao is one of the more passionate boxers in the world, and he’s known for giving it his all on a consistent basis. His record is 57-5-2 with a knock out percentage of 59.4%.
38-year old Floyd Mayweather Jr. is known for his intelligence and his ability to outsmart his opponent. Mayweather has an undefeated record of 47-0 and a knockout percentage of 55.3%.
Personally, I see Mayweather defeating Pacquiao on Saturday night, but don’t count out the resilience of Pacquiao, who is more than qualified to pull off a win as well.
Whoever you’re cheering for, buckle up and enjoy the ride…this one is going to be a dandy. We’re less than a week away from knowing who truly is the number one boxer of the era.
There's some disagreement — even between the match's promoters — on where the upcoming mega-fight will rank in the greatest bouts of all time.
