thats a long time for these 2, until it gets to fight week anything can happen.

 

its not a simple fight to happen, just because its been announced dosent mean anything

they both signed the contract and its pretty much set....it means a lot.

 

yes, something can happen between the 3 months but fights usually dont get announced with a shorter time frame than that. Unless its to fill a spot or injury replacement. They need time to train for each other.

this is the hardest fight to put together for good reason, neither really wants it but they know they have to fight for their record to be classed as legit

 

one will try and get out of it IMHO   Mayweather most likely

i think you're being way too pessimistic about it. Mayweather is making triple his guaranteed money that he got vs Canelo.

 

Mayweather has been really pushing to get this done as well. seems more so than pacman tbh.

lol Mayweather talks about this fight, but has been the one that meant this hasnt happened before.  5 times promoters tried and he made it impossible, dont believe anything that comes out of his mouth

 

as for the money, he could have made more 4 years ago

 

i'm a realist, this fight has a very good chance of not happening

They did a 60/40 split with Mayweather getting at least 120 million and Pacman 80 million.

 

Plus the ppv revenue they receive...holy crap that's gonna be some pay day.

 

But knowing Mayweather's punk ****, there's probably somewhere in the contract where he gets 70% of the ppv revenue.

Eh.. I hope we still have this on TV (Portugal)

 

The fight should've been made before Pacquiao got KTFO by Marquez and the interest is obviously lower, but I'll still watch even if I'm a boxing hater. It's a huge fight, probably the biggest since the Tyson days, and a cultural landmark.

 

Floyd probably takes a UD (as always)

Wouldn't be surprised to see it hit 3 million PPVs

I still can't quote, but to answer juice, he really didn't say Pacquiao "ducked", he just acknowledged that it was Pacquiao's "fault" because Pac didn't want to do the blood testing. That means he was on roids in my opinion. He wasn't ducking Mayweather, he was ducking the steroids test.

^this

 

I'm not a Mayweather fan, but Pacman is or was on steroids most likely.

Floyd Mayweather, Pacquiao Fight Will Be Huge For Las Vegas

Although the long-awaited fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao was just announced on Friday (Feb. 20), Las Vegas sportsbooks have had odds posted on the fight for several weeks.

On Friday morning, Mayweather was listed as high as a minus-275 favorite at the Westgate SuperBook and as low as minus-240 at William Hill, while Pacquiao was at plus-235 underdog. The Wynn had Pac-Man at a plus-220 underdog.

So far, betting action has been light, but almost entirely for the Filipino boxing star. According to ESPN.com, the books said that 94 percent of the money that had been bet at William Hill was on Pacquiao with the largest bet, so far, being $1,000... as of Friday.

Most others were smaller bets from recreational bettors who were in town for other events like the Super Bowl.

Despite the slow early action, with the fight officially set for May 2nd, a slew of bets are expected... both large and small. "This is the kind of fight that we'll take a lot of big bets, seven figures," Jay Rood, MGM vice president of race of sports, told ESPN.

John Avello, sportsbook director at Wynn and 20+ year vet, tells ESPN it will be the biggest fight of his bookmaking career. "Both fighters have attracted quite of bit of money through their careers; Pacquiao even more so," Avello said. "At one time, his following, the Filipino community was coming in and betting his fights for a lot of money. I think there will certainly be underdog money here. There's no question about that."

In addition to betting, Las Vegas has been receiving an influx of hotel reservations.

Already, a reservations website for the MGM Grand, where the fight will take place, is showing that rooms are sold out, although a rep said some standard rooms were still available by phone. On Friday night, a room at the MGM Grand that usually costs $190 on a Saturday night was available for the night of May 2 for $705.

A room at Circus Circus, which can usually be booked for $99 on a given Saturday, will cost $199 for the night of May 2.
