Mayweather Vs Pacquio: Winner takes away 200 million dollars
If you thought IPL was lucrative with franchise ‘s dishing out insane amounts at the auction think again, the Mayweather vs Pacquiao has a combined prize money of Rupees 1800 crore! approx ($200 million (1200 crore approx) for the winner and $100 million (approx 600 crore) for the loser).
Thats a big payday for both fighters as Mayweather puts his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association welterweight belts on the line against Pacquiao.
One day before Mayweather and Pacquiao finally meet in the richest event in boxing history, they took the stage in an MGM Grand arena filled with 11,500 fans enjoying the public’s best chance to see the fighters in person.
Pacquiao (age: 35) (57-5-2, 38 KOs) stepped on the scales first and weighed in at 145 pounds, two below the welterweight limit. Mayweather (age:37) (47-0, 26 KOs) followed and weighed in at 146 pounds.
Will the streak end?
The two fighters have arguably been the biggest names in professional boxing over the last decade. Manny Pacquiao made his pay-per-view debut in March 2005 against Erik Morales, Mayweather followed 3 months later as he took on Arturo Gatti. Floyd “Money” Mayweather has been undefeated since as he holds a perfect 47-0 career record. And this is what gives him the edge over Pacquiao in the betting market. Manny though has recorded more victories via K.O (38) than his opponent (26).
Mayweather 3 wins away from completing a half century of victories
Although 3 wins seems a tempting offer to complete a half century of victories, but Mayweather has said that he plans to retire after one more bout in September. Two more wins would make him 49-0, level with Rocky Marciano.
