For a long time, boxing fans have been asking for one match in particular

It was denied to them many times for different reasons. It seems everybody’s  prayers have been answered and we wont have to wait much for it. May 2nd at MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather Jr. will finally fight Manny Pacquiao.  The hotel sold out within minutes of the announcement and ticket prices have gone up to $8.000 each! From pictures of the contract to celebrities giving their opinion, internet and social media have also exploded. It took years to get this fight going since both parts were never able to come to terms.

Recently both fighters met at a Miami Heat game and things got rolling from that point forth. HBO and Showtime executives both sent out statements announcing the deal.

“Everyone involved, including Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, knows this fight simply had to happen.”

said Showtime executive Stephen Espinoza. HBO president Ken Hershman stated:

“On May 2nd, in what everyone believes will be the biggest boxing event of all-time, fight fans have been granted their wish”

Sportsbooks and agents alike are set to profit big time from this huge event
