After years of rumour and chit chat and now three months of hype, we are now on the eve of the first and maybe last fight of this century.
LET’s GET READY TO BEEEEEEEE disappointed.
Everyone that follows the fight game wishes this bout took place five years ago.
Manny Pacquiao is 36 years old and has 64 bouts under his belt after starting in the sport has a 14-year-old. The Pacman has lost a couple of times in his last four outings and has been knocked down.
Floyd Mayweather Junior grew up around his father Floyd and Uncle Roger who were both professionals and champions. Floyd Jr. has a 47-0 perfect record.
The Philippine congressman is a puncher and likes to come forward, while the leader of the Money Team is defensive genius in the ring.
To watch this fight on pay per view it will cost you a brown note.
Don’t expect the second coming of Thomas Hitman Hearns and Marvelous Marvin Hagler who had the most glorious eight minutes of boxing 30 years ago.
Mayweather Junior’s legacy is at stake here. Rocky Marciano retired at 49-0. At 47-0, do you think Floyd is going to do a 180 degree about face and come forward and turn this thing into a pier-six brawl?
It should go the distance or at least until the late rounds. They will probably spend at least a half hour between the ropes with each other.
Here’s some not so free advice. Go into this bout with low expectations, and you could be pleasantly surprised.
Be prepared, because at $100 dollars you could also be bored right out of your skull.
Put your moolah on Money Mayweather.
