Will Floyd Mayweather ever take on Manny Pacquiao? Perhaps not, but they’d be set for the next several lifetimes if they did.

I’m not a boxing fan. I probably couldn’t tell you the difference between a Welterweight, a Featherweight or a Light Heavyweight if I was offered a million dollars.
What I do know simply by being a sports fan in the United States is that Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are the best boxers of this generation – collectively they are the two greatest boxers the world has seen since Mike Tyson, and their dominance in all levels of competition has been unmatched by anyone since Iron Mike left the ring – and I didn’t even know who Tyson was until long after he retired from boxing.
Since the expansion of social media in the mid-2000s there have been epic Superbowls, a bunch of Soccer/Football/Futbol World Cups (pardon my inherent American misspelling of the proper name), the Olympics and more UFC and Pro Wrestling super fights than people have room for. But what social media hasn’t hyped yet is what would accurately be referred to as the Fight of the Millennium.
There just aren’t any marquee boxers that everyone from South Florida to Anchorage, Alaska knows or hears about quite as much as Pacquiao and Mayweather. And when two of the best in the world have that level of hype going for them, regardless of how they actually perform in the ring, everyone will want to see – and I mean EVERYONE.
