The $uper-fight of the century is here! Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao
The ‘Fight of the Century’ is finally here. Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao will take on undefeated Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Saturday night at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand. And this super-fight is all about the money!
Market prices for a single ticket are $5,000 to $100,000. A record shattering 4 million pay-per-view sales at $100 a pop. Mayweather and Pacquiao will split the estimated $300 to $400 million purse 60 - 40 respectively making this event unprecedented in the history of combat sports.
Las Vegas strippers and car dealerships can expect ‘Money’ Mayweather to make it rain like monsoon season in the Philippines. Whereas Pacman will likely donate much of his payout to charity for when it actually does rain during monsoon season in the Philippines.
Oscar De la Hoya, who lost to Pacquiao, describes him as “a fly you can’t shoo away.” Mayweather will try to tempt Pacquiao into overcommitting to headshots, which he’ll likely dodge and counter on his way to 48 - 0. Unless of course Pacman is able to overcome the odds, raising the stakes for an even more gargantuan rematch.
