The Fight Is On

By Kelly Swanson

(LAS VEGAS, NV) – Undefeated, 11-time world champion Floyd Mayweather formally announced the most anticipated boxing match of this generation. Mayweather vs Pacquiao, a welterweight world championship unification bout, will take place on Saturday, May 2, live on pay-per-view.

This event, which holds the promise of breaking every pay-per-view record in history, is being promoted by Mayweather Promotions and Top Rank Inc, and will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV and HBO Pay-Per-View.

“I am glad my decision to meet with Manny and discuss making this fight happen helped get the deal done,” said Mayweather. “Giving the fans what they want to see is always my main focus. This will be the biggest event in the history of the sport. Boxing fans and sports fans around the world will witness greatness on May 2. I am the best ever and this fight will be another opportunity to showcase my skills and do what I do best; which is win. Manny is going to try to do what 47 before him failed to do, but he won’t be successful. He will be number 48.”
