Arum, Roach Confident Pacquiao Downs Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather is relishing the chance to finally go toe-to-toe with Manny Pacquiao after announcing the long-awaited fight will take place in May. The undefeated 11-times world champion announced the bout by posting a picture of the signed contract on social media platform Shots on Friday night, adding: "I promised the fans we would get this done and we did."

Mayweather, unbeaten after 47 professional fights, and Pacquiao, an eight-division world champion, will now go head-to-head in a welterweight world championship unification bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 2.

Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, and promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, are confident their man will come out on top.

Roach:  "Floyd should enjoy being the A-Side while he can because on May 2 Manny is going to put him on his backside." 

Arum: "It's going to a great fight. We are confident our fighter Manny Pacquiao will emerge victorious."

[QUOTE=Nomadic;15400920]I remember the Tyson and Lewis fight, Lewis jabbed and straight Tyson all day at his range, as soon as Tyson got close, Lewis locked him, leaned on him and tired him out. Soon the ref break, rinse and repeat…
