Like a light switch, the title fight everyone craves has been on again - off again since it was first "reported" as a done deal in December 2009. The long-running fight outside the ropes between eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao and five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. may finally be over. A simple signature by Mayweather, by January 31, 2015, would bring the two best boxers in the world to the ring at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 2, 2015.
Pretty boy Floyd may have ducked Pacquiao for the final time
At last count Floyd Mayweather Jr. has ducked four challenges from Manny Pacquiao - will a fifth try be the charm? Concessions from the Pacquiao camp, reports have Mayweather Jr. receiving a 60/40 revenue share, shows just how badly Manny wants a piece of Floyd. Billed as the “Fight of the Century” for almost seven years now, this epic event would crown an undisputed World Champion as the WBC, WBO, WBA (Super) and The Ring welterweight titles would all be on the line.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Manny Pacquiao title fight would ignite a slumbering boxing world
Desperately needed, by a sport that’s fledgling at best lately, Mayweather vs Pacquiao would rock the boxing world. Should Mayhem at the MGM Grand Garden Arena finally materialize, this fight is certain to shatter the combined record pay-per-view and live gate revenues ($170M USD) generated from the Mayweather vs Saúl Álvarez battle on September 13, 2013. Add in several tens of millions that will be wagered on the fight, at various land based and online sportsbooks, and this shapes up as the most profitable boxing and sporting event of all-time. Though circled, meaning bookmakers are taking limited wagers, here are “Money vs Pac Man” battle lines currently posted at Bodog.
