Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao


There’s Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight.

On Friday, HBO announced Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao will finally face off in the ring on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Here’s the scoop via HBO.com:

At stake, nominally, will be each man’s welterweight title, but the two belts up for grabs are the least of the prizes on offer. The winner will not just be the true welterweight champion. He will be even more than the undisputed number one pugilist, pound-for-pound, in the world. He will lay an uncontestable claim to be the best boxer of his generation. Both will emerge as very rich men, earning more money in one night than even they have ever pocketed at any stage in their glittering careers. But as much pleasure as such riches will bring, the winner will surely derive even greater satisfaction from putting the debate to rest and emerging victorious against the man whose name has been uttered in connection with his own with infuriating, suffocating frequency.

I also heard Dr. Dre is dropping Detox on May 2. *sarcasm*

I’ll believe this fight is going down…when I see them fighting.
