Las Vegas (PRWEB) May 02, 2015
Saturday night will see two of the finest fighters of all time finally go head to head in the ring, as Floyd Mayweather takes on Manny Pacquiao in what could be the greatest fight in history.
While many fight fans would have loved to have seen this match-up a few years ago, anticipation has been rocketing in the days leading up to the fight, which is taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night. The fight starts at 22:00 local time (04:00 BST).
It has the largest purse of any fight in history at around the $250 million mark and it is likely to be one of the most watched sporting events the world has ever seen.
All the details anyone could need about the big fight can be found at ORA REPORT, including where to watch it live, and the result immediately after the fight is over.
A company spokesperson for ORA REPORT stated that Mayweather-Pacquiao is the biggest fight ever scheduled.
He added: "Fight fans have been waiting for Mayweather and Pacquiao to get in the ring together for many years and it is finally happening on Saturday night. With both boxers arguably beyond the peak of their powers, it may not be the explosive contest people wanted to see, but it promises to be an extremely absorbing battle between two of sport's biggest personalities.
HBO and Showtime have teamed up to bring the fight live to millions of viewers around the world, with fans and experts split on who is the more likely to win - Mayweather or Pacquiao.
US boxer Mayweather is undoubtedly one of the most successful fighters in history, winning 11 titles across five different weight divisions during his unbeaten career in the ring to date. Since becoming world champion, he has won 24 fights out of 24, with ten of those wins by knockout.
Pacquiao has been one of the most versatile boxers ever, taking titles in a record eight weight divisions and fighting at weights ranging from 112lbs to 154lbs. In his 21 world title fights Pacquiao has been defeated just twice - against Timothy Bradley Jr and Juan Manuel Marquez - winning ten of them by knockout.
The stats show it is likely to be an even fight, with Mayweather a narrow favourite to take another step towards a 50-0 record that would go down in history as the greatest ever.
Mayweather has more speed and tactical fighting ability than anyone to ever step into the ring, but the explosive power of Pacquiao could still end this fight before the 12 rounds are up.
Tickets for the fight sold out in just minutes and have been resold for many times their original value. They are currently like gold dust in Las Vegas and many fight fans will instead stream the fight live to make sure they do not miss it.
