Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao press conference

The fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao is arguably the biggest boxing match in decades. On Wednesday, the two fighters will have their only press conference prior to the bout. 

Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs), an 11-time world champion, and Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) will square off in a welterweight world championship unification bout on May 2. Mayweather last fought in September, earning a 12-round unanimous decision in his rematch with Marcos Maidana, while Pacquiao won a unanimous-decision victory over Chris Algieri in November.

The press conference is the only time the two fighters will appear together before the week of the fight.

MANNIX: Floyd Mayweather a big challenge for Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach

Talks between Mayweather and Pacquiao seemed to pick up steam in late January, when both attended the same Miami Heat game and were seen talking to each other. They reportedly met at a Miami hotel after the game to discuss a deal. Mayweather later posted a video to his Instagram account in early February in which he told Pacquiao that they "have to make this fight happen."

The fight is estimated to be worth more than $250 million.
