The speculation began again on Saturday night. In Las Vegas, Manny Pacquiao returned to the ring for a fight with Jessie Vargas. Sitting ringside was Floyd Mayweather. Pacquiao reportedly invited him and Mayweather’s decision to show up has led many to believe that he will soon give Pacquiao a chance to avenge his blowout 2015 loss to the man they call “Money.”
For nearly six years Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and their respective camps traded jabs outside the ring as the public yearned to see the sport’s two biggest stars face-off. The two boxers finally squared off last month after a series of tortured negotiations. Was it worth the wait? Most boxing fans would argue no, as Pacquiao delivered a listless performance, no doubt impacted by a torn rotator cuff, and Mayweather put on his usual defensive clinic. But for the fighters and everyone involved in the bout, it was an absolute knockout from a financial perspective.
And just like that … THEY WERE GONE!!!!
In the minds of most boxing pundits and fans Muhammad Ali ranks above any other fighter to ever lace on a pair of gloves.
With less than two weeks to go before fight night, the hype for Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr is getting a shot of adrenaline from two documentaries promoting the fight, which takes place May 2 in Las Vegas.
