The road to the May 2 Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight begins

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao have finally agreed to fight inside the ring. Following many years of ducking each other, the matchup between these two pound-for-pound kings still seems too good to be true. Yesterday, the two fighters met for a press conference promoting the May 2 showdown, reassuring fans the matchup is official. The press conference presented the last opportunity for the two fighters to trade verbal jabs until the weigh-ins, as the two will be doing very limited joint publicity to promote the colossal bout. Although the presser was quite tame in comparison to Mayweather’s past promotion antics and opponent-taunting, it did offer some notable moments, including the attendance of pop singer Justin Bieber.
