What to expect from Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao
Thursday February 26th, 2015

One of the most highly anticipated fights in boxing history is set to take place on May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather and star Manny Pacquiao will finally step into the ring.

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey joked after a workout in advance of her upcoming bout against Cat Zingano that she needed to win in order to afford the tickets. 

“I really want to go so bad,” Rousey told TMZ following her workout. “I gotta go beat Cat Zingano so I can make a couple million dollars and afford that ticket.”

Rousey said she is looking forward to the upcoming fight and even shared her rooting interests.

“Pacquiao has been very, very nice to me so I’m going to root for him,” she said.
