The Pound for Pound Kings: Mayweather vs Pacquiao

mayweather vs pacquiao

The fight of Manny Pacman Paquiao versus Floyd Mayweather is a very much anticipated event. Questions like who will win, who will lose, and how much will each earn are bugling the minds not just of our countrymen but also those of boxing aficionados around the world. Indeed, their fight will be one of the most watched in boxing history and both well deserved the title of whoever ends up the victor.

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are already considered bigwigs in the boxing arena. Standing at par with Oscar dela Hoya, and other well known boxers, both have proven their mettle in this field with their side by side wins and fortune-making success that eventually reserved for them a page at the annals of boxing record. Indeed, both are history makers still wanting to add more feathers on their respective caps and gems on their already filled coffers.

Speculations shroud their match. The thought of whether or not it will forgo is also a question yet to be solves. Here in the Philippines, Pacquiao’s status as a boxing star is equaled by his endorsement deals and intention to run for the House of Representatives. Eventually, the sidelines of his career have even outmaneuvered the spotlight from his boxing endeavor itself.

Whether he runs for Congress or not, we boxing aficionados don’t care. What we care about is that he wins his next fight and once again let the banner of our country stand atop other nations.
