People crowd on sidewalk to watch Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

Sunday May 3rd, 2015

Colorado Rockiers pitcher John Axford was documenting Saturday's highly anticipated bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Technically, the fight stretched into Sunday. But for fans like the ones Axford documented, who watched the fight from the streets while looking up into a third-story window, it's all the same.

The long-awaited fight, widely considered one of the biggest in boxing history, finally got underway at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas just before midnight.

Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) is looking to defend his WBO title, while Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) will put his WBC and WBA crowns on the line.
