It has finally been announced. The megafight between welterweight champions Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The date has been confirmed as May 2, 2015 at the MGM in Las Vegas. The fight is set to net the pugilists $250,000,000 with a 60/40 financial split, favoring Mayweather.
As I stated on Twitter two days ago, both Mayweather and Pacquiao are smart businessmen. They were not about to walk away from such a large sum of money for what is set to be a historic bout. This is the type of fight legends are made of. It is the type of fight boxers dream about taking part in. It is the big time. The fight is inline to be one of the greatest sporting events ever.
