Sylvester Stallone, Larry Merchant break down Mayweather-Pacquiao
Floyd Mayweather's and Manny Pacquiao's May 2 fight is shaping up to be one of the biggest in boxing history, and so the fight's official beer, Tecate, got together two big-name fight fans, actor Sylvester Stallone and longtime boxing announcer Larry Merchant, to discuss the bout.
In a series of videos, Stallone and Merchant go back and forth about who has the edge in the latest fight of the century, with Stallone seeming to favor Mayweather's defense and technical perfection, while Merchant leans towards Pacquiao's tenacity and punching power.
Merchant and Mayweather, of course, have a bit of a history with Merchant frequently criticizing the undefeated boxer, and Mayweather questioning his integrity and boxing knowledge, which resulted in the analyst saying, "I wish I was 50 years younger and I would kick your ass."
In addition to sponsoring the match, Tecate has announced a rebate program for fans who buy the beer, offering a refund of up to $50 on the fight's $100 pay-per-view cost.
