IT’S really happening. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao came face-to-face at the only press conference in the build up to their fight. The Boxing News team wonders what the scale of this event will be globally and whether we can glean any clues from their encounter as to how the fight itself will go down.
We also wonder how Keith Thurman can get himself in the frame to challenge Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao and we react to the rest of the weekend’s action, which saw heartbreak for hometown heroes in world title fights as Paul Butler lost in Liverpool and Zou Shiming WAS defeated in Macau.
We look forward to another big weekend of fights, with Andre Berto going into a high stakes clash with Josesito Lopez and we wonder how Jean Pascal will cope with “The Krusher” Sergey Kovalev in Canada.
No politics. Just boxing. Get involved.
