In advance of his welterweight title bout with Floyd Mayweather on Saturday, Sept. 12, Andre Berto gave CBS Local Sports a first-hand glimpse at his life in and out of the ring.
Floyd Mayweather says in an upcoming interview with Showtime that at this moment he’s not interested in a rematch with Manny Pacquiao “because he’s a sore loser and he’s a coward.”
Meanwhile, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache told ESPN.com that Pacquiao will undergo surgery later this week to repair a “significant tear” in his rotator cuff.
Why did Pacquiao, the dominant and dynamic champion who blew through opponents like a tornado, fight like he’d won before the opening bell? Why was there no urgency?
It wasn’t the fight it might have been five years ago. But it was enough to settle the question that boxing fans had asked for years — who would win the matchup of the best fighters of their time.
Here were some of the highlights from before and after the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.
Palawan Electric Cooperative secretary Rante Ramos says shutting down refrigerators in 15,000 households alone will reduce the demand for electricity in the province.
Leslie Moonves, the president and CEO of CBS, is hopeful that Mayweather-Pacquiao will live up to the hype Saturday — and not just in the financial record books.
Numbers aside, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are battling for something more metaphysical. Legacy. To own the other’s soul.
Speaking to the Undisputed Champion Network ahead of Saturday’s fight of the century, Tyson unleashed a vicious body blow on Floyd Mayweather.
Manny Pacquiao worried about Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez and Oscar De La Hoya. He’s got no such worries about Floyd Mayweather.
When the clock strikes midnight we’ll see who morphs into a prince or a pumpkin. Until then, we are drooling over the two most regal scientists in the sweet science.
We’re less than two weeks away from the fight, watch as our experts give their thoughts on what will happen.
Don’t expect to snag one at a starting retail price of $1,500, though. There will only be some 500 tickets sold to the general public for boxing’s richest fight ever.
Though many of the tickets have long been spoken for, the MGM Grand hotel has repeatedly promised a public sale of at least a token amount of seats for the May 2 fight.
