Watch: Mayweather, Pacquiao pre-fight press conference
Wednesday April 29th, 2015

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will address the media at a press conference Wednesday as they prepare for their much anticipated bout on Saturday. 

Mayweather and Pacquiao will face off at the MGM Grand in a fight that is expected to earn each boxer more than $100 million. Mayweather will take home 60% of the purse, with the other 40% going to Pacquiao.

Tickets for Saturday's fight sold out in less than a minute when they went on sale last Thursday.

Widely considered the two best pound-for-pound fighters of their generation, Mayweather and Pacquiao have never faced each other before. Earlier attempts to organize a fight between the two failed to materialize but a bout was finally agreed upon in February.
