WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) has a chance to cement his place among the greatest in the sport of boxing if he can score a victory over undefeated WBC and WBA titleholder Floyd Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) in the self-proclaimed "Fight of the Century."
While an estimated 17,000 spectators will see it in person at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and millions more will shell out close to $100 to watch the match on pay-per view, Pacquiao’s home country of the Philippines will also be playing close attention.
