Mayweather officially announces Pacquiao fight: Rivals will finally meet in the ring.
Mayweather Jr. finally announced the fight that the world has been waiting for over the weekend, as he will face Pacquiao on May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Both men have insisted that they wanted to put the fight on for the fans, but also to end the debate over who is the pound-for-pound king of boxing.
Naturally, both made arguments in favour of themselves winning the bout, but Mayweather Sr. believes that it isn’t even a question as his son will prove all his critics wrong and make it look easy.
“This is going to be a one-sided deal, man. Pacman gets his ass whooped, simple! I’m just telling you what it is,” he told FightHype.
“Everybody all hyped and geeked, they will see how easy this fight is going to be. I’m just telling you right now and I’m saying this right now, ain’t no way he can whoop Floyd. That’s that. He can forget it. He can bite the bone because that’s what he’s going to do; hit the f—–g ground.”
Mayweather Sr. added that there was no need for a rematch clause to be inserted on their part given how dominant he believes the win will be, as he insists that his fighter is too smart and too fast for Pacquiao.
“Floyd’s going to make him look like a baby. Believe me! Floyd can hit him with a jab and stuff easy, man. He’s the most hittable man in the world. You gonna see that. You gonna get a chance to see exactly what I’m talking about. Floyd gonna hit him so easy. Floyd will dominate him bad,” he continued.
Although this mega-fight is six years too late in the eyes of many experts, it remains to be seen whether or not either fighter’s skills have diminished more than the other.
Pacquiao has suffered defeats to Timothy Bradley as well as Juan Manuel Marquez in recent years, while many saw a decline in Mayweather in his first bout with Marcos Maidana given how he was caught by his Argentine rival.
Nevertheless, both men will undoubtedly go through rigorous training camps to get in the best shape possible, and the fight still promises to be a classic if both deliver on their promises.
