Watch Live Streaming: Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather May 2 2015 May 2 (05/02/2015) Full episode replay.
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally give boxing the mega-fight fans and observers have craved for years after it was announced on Friday that the pair will face off for unified welterweight championship on May 2 at Las Vegas’s MGM Grand Garden Arena.
As part of the agreement for what will be the most lucrative showdown in fight history, Mayweather made the announcement via his account on the social media web site Shots.com, bringing to an end years of frustration and conjecture that seemed destined to keep the sport’s two highest-profile athletes apart.
Here’s his message on the social media site Shots:
What the world has been waiting for has arrived. Mayweather vs. Pacquiao on May 2, 2015, is a done deal. I promised the fans we would get this done, and we did. We will make history on May 2nd. Don’t miss it! This is the signed contract from both fighters
Stephen Espinoza, the Showtime Sports boss, said in a statement:
“Everyone involved, including Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, knows this fight simply had to happen. All of us are thrilled to be able to deliver this event to boxing fans around the world. Now, for the second time under his current deal with Showtime Networks, Floyd Mayweather has agreed to fight an opponent that many people thought he’d never face. We set an all-time pay-per-view record with the first event back in September 2013, and we look forward to another record-breaking performance on May 2.”
Ken Hershman, the President, HBO Sports said: “Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather have been the two most prominent fighters in the sport of boxing for the past decade, and fight fans around the world have been clamoring for them to face each other… May 2nd will be a signature moment for the sport of boxing and HBO Sports is thrilled to be a part of this spectacular event.”
Mayweather will go into the fight as favorite, yet it can safely be considered by far his toughest test in recent times. He turns 38 next week, while Pacquiao is 36, and while neither man is at his peak, it is without question the most compelling match-up boxing has to offer.
Pacquiao’s most recent fight, a one-sided dismantling of out-matched hopeful Chris Algieri in Macau in November, did little to give indication as to the Filipino’s capabilities of matching Mayweather, boxing’s undisputed pound-for-pound king.
