Meet: 12 Undercard Boxers for Pacquiao vs. Mayweather Fight


ADVERTISEMENT


MANILA, Philippines – After five years of hard negotiations, it is now finally happening. The stage is finally set for the world’s top boxers of our era. Undefeated Floyd “Money” Mayweather will bet his immaculate 47-0 record against the multi-talented Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao on Saturday, May 2nd (Sunday May 3rd, Manila Time) at the prestigious MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas Nevada, USA.

Two more days before the much anticipated fight of the history unfolds and Pay Per View (PPV) venues are now running out of slots. This is the most expensive fight in sports history in terms of paycheck for both fighters and most expensive PPV as well for the boxing fans and sports fanatics around the globe.

I was able to book a PPV just this week via our Cable TV provider and I was surprised by its price. It’s not cheap, Php 2,500 is no joke. I tried to source out for other PPV venues near my area and I wasn’t able to find an inexpensive one.

Major hotels in the metro offer good PPV deals with buffet and beer all you can. But again, they’re not cheap! Hotel PPV starts from Php 2,500 up to Php 8,000 per person.

Imagine if Pacquiao knocks out Mayweather in as early as round 2 just like what he did to Ricky Hatton. I know it’s all worth it. Every Filipino wants Manny to knockout Floyd. But I bet you would want a longer fight just to maximize the money you spent on this fight.

I tell you what. In order to maximize your money, go to the venue as early as 8:00 in the morning to secure the best seat in your preferred PP venue and go watch the undercard bouts.

Here are the bouts that will go before the main card event. Meet the 12 boxers for the televised and untelevised undercard.
