The check was for $100 million, a payday so mind boggling that Floyd Mayweather Jr. couldn’t help but show it to a few reporters when the night was done.
Jeff Lesson and Dan Leach talk MayPac – fight or farce?
Here were some of the highlights from before and after the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.
Despite Pacquiao’s underdog status Roach believes his fighter will be victorious come Saturday saying “I do think we’ll knock him out in about the 9th round.”
“The money let you know that. Each generation is supposed to take it to the next level and it’s good to see that Mayweather and Pacquiao can have that much and it goes to show you that boxing is not dead.”
“99% of the time in boxing, the fighter has won before you even get in the ring” Hopkins said.
“Of course, they got to call him one of theirs. I’m pretty sure they should do everything that everybody else do and put his name on the street somewhere. Somewhere his name has to go up.”
Unfortunately for us and the entire boxing world, Jen and Stephanie, the actual names of these beauties, will not be in the ring come Saturday due to “Mayweather Promotions.”
They’re calling it the biggest fight ever and by the turnout of media, fans the “spare no expense” atmosphere, I would say they’re correct.
Manny Pacquiao and trainer Freddie Roach have spent the past two months trying to solve the biggest puzzle in modern boxing.
