There could very well be 3 fights out of this.

First fight - Disputed decision that goes to Mayweather. Fans and some boxing writers will say that Manny deserved the win because he was busier, threw more punches and seemed to be the aggressor. Floyd gets the win based on defense and crispness of his punches that were more accurate and landed cleaner. Fight will end up being more than $300+ million so they will do it again.

Second fight - Decision by Pacquiao. Disputed just like the fight above. Fight does even more $$$ than the first.

Third fight - TKO Mayweather over Pacquiao. Will go down as a great BILLION dollar three fight deal.

Except Manny is 36 and it's Floyd that is going to be 38 in three days...

Point is - both are athletically over the hill.

I heard that the preliminary fight is Stallone vs DeNiro followed by the bout between two aging fighters.

I'm glad it's finally happening and I'm going to find a pay per view location to see it. Like already mentioned, should have happened over 5 years ago when this really would be a fight for the ages.

Horrible opinion, paulie

You really should stick to tennis.

Pretty Boy will flaunt his superior skills and intelligence and handle the overrated Pacquiao with relative ease...
Well we shall find out now wont we Junkie

I am looking forward to this, all you Mayweather lovers are about to see him knocked out.

Pacman has always fought the best, proper fighter.

Pacquiao has aged more over 17 additional tough fights as well. But before a certain fan-girl accuses me of making excuses, I still think they are evenly matched at this point in their careers. I just think Pacquiao would have destroyed Mayweather had they fought five years ago. Today, it is a more competitive match.

Thanks for the laugh, Coolhand

Pacquiao was never in Pretty Boy's league. He has nothing more than a slight chance to beat him now, in my estimation.

PB will NEVER let some 5-loss 2-draw fighter tarnish his beautiful record at this point...
