Pacquiao and Mayweather match live on SKY Pay-Per-View
On his historic and career-defining fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., Manny Pacquiao will earn the chance to keep his WBO belt, win Mayweather Jr’s WBC and WBA (Super) titles, and perhaps even succeed in earning his fifth weight division crown.
Currently, The People’s Champ already has the crowns for the flyweight, featherweight, junior lightweight, and junior welterweight divisions. Should Pacquiao defeat “The Money Man” Mayweather, he’ll become the first fighter in history to hold five crowns from five different weight divisions – as he’ll gain the welterweight crown upon winning. The battle of the century will take place in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and is set to be the most watched and most profitable fight in history where both fighters will receive nine-figure windfalls from all the proceeds. For Manny’s Filipino fans, they can watch the live and commercial-free telecast on May 3, Sunday, starting 8am – airing in both standard and high definition on SKY Pay-Per-View.
In Pacquiao’s camp, training this time has taken a more serious and more determined turn. Unlike in the preparations for previous match-ups, Pacquiao now only spars in the presence of his most trusted team mates while politely asking others to leave the gym premises while practicing.
“Manny’s always been very open and so forth. But this is such a big fight and getting the game plan right is so important. I felt it’s critical we fight the right fight and to tell you the truth, it’s been a lot better. Manny’s getting a lot of work in and I think it’s been his best camp in a while because of it”, said Freddie Roach when he was asked for comments regarding Pacquiao’s conditioning leading up to the fight.
Meanwhile in Floyd Mayweather Jr’s camp, “The Money Man” and his father puts on a show for his expectant gym crowd during practice. The only catch is that spectators are not allowed to film or photograph sparring matches, as they might be sent to Pacquiao’s camp for analysis.
For Mayweather Sr., he “ain’t worried ’bout nothing”, emphasizing that there are “no secrets here. Anybody can watch.” The confidence in the Mayweather camp is so high that Floyd’s father has proudly stated “There ain’t no threat in front my son. That’s why I’m not worried about nothing.”
