“We got two monster fights this Fall,” exclaimed Big Steve during our morning coffee at Starbucks onWestern AvenueinGlendale:” Floyd Mayweather in September and Pacquiao in November. I wish they were fighting each other, but since they are not, who wins the pay per view war?”
This is an intriguing question that deserves some consideration.
Floyd Mayweather will face newly crowned WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz on September, 17th at the MGM Grand Arena inLas Vegas.
On November 13th, Manny Pacquaio will battle Juan Manuel Marquez for the third time at the same venue, MGM Grand Arena inLas Vegas. Both fights will be televised via PPV; Mayweather’s by HBO and Pacquiao’s not yet determined (HBO and Showtime are in the running).
According toLas Vegasbook makers both Pacquiao and Mayweather are eight to one favorites to beat their perspective opponents and both are expected to win in a dominant fashion. Despite huge odds each match up is intriguing enough to generate public’s interest.
With Mayweather being out of the ring for sixteen month and having to face a young, strong and fast opponent, ten year his junior: it is simply a risky fight. In awe of Mayweather’s skills and ring smarts fight fans have been dying to see master boxer get beat. Could this be the night where thirty four year old Floyd suddenly gets old?
