Are you ready America? The contracts are signed, Floyd Mayweather jr. and Manny Pacquiao will face off against each other on May 2nd in Las Vegas.
All 3 welterweight belts are on the line. Also, no rematch negotiated in the contract. The fight will of course take place at the MGM Grand.
Mayweather even provided a quote:
“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, TBE, 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.”
The chance meeting of the two boxers in Miami, at a Heat game is what was said to cause the discussions to pick up steam.
