IT’S been billed the Fight of the Century and certainly there’s been the hype of the century.
Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquaio has grabbed the attention of fights more than any other contest in recent memory.
Both boxers are already legends of the ring and one reason for them finally meeting in Las Vegas is the crazy amount of money on offer to both.
I’m no boxing expert but most tipsters are siding with Mayweather, probably on points, but some reckon the younger Pac Man has a chance.
Hopefully we’ll see some good comments on the fight but for me best bet looks to be boylesports’ 1-1 for Mayweather to win by decision or technical decision. The action is expected to start at around 5am Sunday.
Coral predict £10 million will be wagered on the bout – loose change to the flashy Floyd – with the weight of money in favour of Mayweather.
He is 8-15 favourite to keep his unbeaten record intact while Paquiao is 7-4 to cause an upset. A stoppage for the American is 11-2 and it’s 13-8 the pair take part in a lucrative rematch in 2015.
The fight should be close and a draw or technical draw pays 16-1 while it’s 3-10 it goes the distance and 12-5 that it doesn’t.
