Mayweather vs Pacquiao?? FINALLY??

Will the match we have all been waiting for since 2009 finally happen? Pacquiao made an appearance on Huffington Post this past Friday where he stated that the only thing that separates him from the LONG-AWAITED fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. is Mayweather’s signature on the infamous contract. Pacquiao stated he agreed to ALL terms and Mayweather’s people have also. This match has been talked about since 2009 when the two boxers were ranked as Number 1 and Number 2 and since then the world has wanted to know who Number 1 really is. The two boxers are so different which makes for an extraordinary fight; Mayweather so cocky and so outspoken and Pacquiao who speaks softly and lets his punching power speak for him. Yahoo Sports reported that the fight is to be held at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on May 2nd; reportedly ticket prices may begin at $1,000 and can go up to $5,000.
When asked about his feelings about the fight and whether he feels this fight could help his career Pacquiao stated “If you ask me if the fight happens, no problem,” Pacquiao said. “If that fight will not happen, it will never impact my career because what I’ve done in boxing, I’m already satisfied. I broke the record in boxing [by winning world titles in] eight divisions. I’m a coach in the Philippines of a basketball team. I’m a playing-coach. I’m a congressman. What my concern is, is to make the fight happen for the fans. Everywhere I go, even in Thailand, every place, the fans are asking, ‘When will this fight happen? When will this fight happen?’ That question is not for me. It’s for Mayweather. Millions of people are asking that question everywhere I go. It’s kind of bothering me, that question. It’s time to make the fight happen. The fans deserve it.”
Not only will this fight make millions of fans all over the world happy, but it will also help the two boxers make a large amount of money. Reports say that with this fight alone Mayweather stands to make as much as $120 Million.
Are you excited?! Made your Bets?! Pacquiao vs Mayweather?
Let us know who you think is number 1?

Now, as of June 2022, Major League Baseball has officially announced their new policy in which teams are allowed to be officially sponsored by CBD companies, the chemical found in marijuana that promotes therapeutic effects, but does not produce any high like THC, the other prevalent chemical in marijuana.
