It has been five years in the making, but finally The Fight of the Century is upon us. This Saturday at the MGM Arena in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao will go head-to-head in one of the most highly anticipated fights in history.
‘Money’ Mayweather (1/2) is undefeated in 47 fights and The Ring Magazine’s number one pound for pound boxer in the world. The American is a five-division world champion and was also listed as the highest paid athlete in the world in 2014. He also finished ninth on Dancing With the Stars (American’s version of Strictly) in 2007, but it’s unlikely that he’ll brag about that one too much.
In the opposite corner is the ‘Pac-Man’ (15/8). When he’s not running for government, playing professional basketball (seriously), or preparing to release his third pop album in the Philippines (!) he likes to do a fair bit of boxing. He isn’t too shabby in the ring and is the only eight-division world champion in boxing history.
