Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Fight May 2, 2015 Confirmed

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Fight May 2, 2015 date has finally been confirmed. What is the start time on the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight, what channel is the Mayweather Pacquiao fight, and how can you watch the Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2015 fight? Floyd Mayweather made the news seconds ago, ending years of conjecture, anticipation, and stalling. The fight is happening. And the venue is set: MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao 2015 will, like all other Floyd fights, have a start time around 10 pm PST. The undercard has not been announced. And other details are pending. But for the first time in several years, a big fight will air on two channels. The Mayweather Pacman fight channels are HBO and Showtime PPV. “Everyone involved, including Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, knows this fight simply had to happen. All of us are thrilled to be able to deliver this event to boxing fans around the world,” said Showtime Sports general manager Stephen Espinoza in a news statement today. HBO Sports president Ken Hershman added “May 2nd will be a signature moment for the sport of boxing and HBO Sports is thrilled to be a part of this spectacular event.”

Previously ShowTime and HBO handled the Tyson vs Lewis fight back in 2002. Several weeks ago, LALATE reported that Las Vegas hotels were still available even as the anticipation about the fight was pending. Last week, LALATE reported that the fight would have to be finalized by today. And moments ago it was. As of today, many hotels are still offering rooms hours after the announcement; those prices are currently $200-300 a night. Those rates are expected to rise. Tickets to the fight are expected to be priced in excess of $1,000. PPV prices are expected to be higher, Forbes is reporting. Many are expecting those prices at home will cost viewers $100.

Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Fight May 2, 2015 Fight Gets Backup

Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Fight May 2, 2015 Fight Gets Backup

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Is the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Fight May 2, 2015 at the MGM Grand Las Vegas happening? The fight has not been confirmed. But there is a backup plan. A day does not pass without false reports coming from both Mayweather and Pacman’s camps. Bottom line, there still is no fight. However, one thing is purportedly apparently. There will be a fight on May 2, 2015 at the MGM Grand with Floyd Mayweather, and not on May 30. And if the opponent is not Pacman, it will be someone else. Reports claim the backups are Miguel Cotto or Amir Khan.

Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao 2015 fight details are dragging fans left and right. After years of being promised this fight, fans are skeptical and critical of both camps of pushing untrues through the press. This week alone there have been statements, retractions, assertions, and untruths. However, reports now claim two things are definitely not happening.

First, there is not going to be a May 30, 2015, reports claim. Initial reports claimed that the May 2 fight is too soon and that parties are going to move the fight to May 30. Reports claim that is just not true. Second, there are reports that if the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao deal is not made, then neither fighter will box on May 2. That is purportedly also not true. The latest installment claims that May 2, 2015 at the MGM Grand will have as a backup fight either Floyd Mayweather vs Miguel Cotto 2015, or Floyd Mayweather vs Amir Khan 2015.

In the realm of conjecture here, who do you believe? The best is the broadcaster and the venue. Showtime boxing chief Stephen Espinoza tells the New York Post that the situation is simple; Floyd is fighting this May, in Las Vegas, and on May 2, despite whatever happens with Pacman. “He’s definitely fighting on May 2,” Espinoza told the Daily News. “His first choice by far is Manny Pacquiao. If it becomes clear that that fight is not achievable, then he would move on to either Amir Khan or Miguel Cotto. He’s made it clear to us that Pacquiao is still his No. 1 priority, and that’s where all our energy is focused.”

Ironically, the above image headlined a 2012 news story on LALATE. At the time, a Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao May 2, 2012 fight was promised to fans as well. And we all know what happened that May 2, and each year thereafter. Of note, many of the parties claim that if this May 2, 2015 deal is made, if will have been made in the next seven days and announced formally next week.

Manny Pacquiao Fight Winner: Who Won the Pacquiao Fight Last Night

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Who won the Manny Pacquiao fight last night, what were the Manny Pacquiao boxing fight results last night, and was there a surprise? The Manny Pacquiao boxing fight last night November 22, 2014 was one of the worse lopsided fights for Pacman in recent memories. With nearly a half dozen knockdowns, his competitor never winning a single round, and Pacman hardly working to win rounds, many criticized the fight as an easy match to garner an easy check. Manny Pacquiao won the match after a unanimous 12 round decision.

The Manny Pacquiao fight results last night left the future of a Mayweather Pacquiao fight in limbo. As reported on LALATE over the years, these two camps have promised, predicted, and scheduled such a fight, in the court of public opinion. But when it comes to signing a contract, they have not done so. Two years back this time, we were promised a May Cinco De Mayo 2013 fight at the MGM Grand. Then we were told that the venue was too small, that an external special arena would need to be built. The excuses grew, and the fight never happened.

Instead, fans have been fed a lot of tall tales about how Manny is lining up quality fighters to battle. But is he? Algieri told TopRank this week “It is not so much Manny’s style but his experience level that makes him such a dangerous opponent. He has had over 60 pro fights and been fighting for a very long time against the top fighters in the world. It is going to be my job to test how bad he actually still wants this.”

Algieri thought he would win because of his kickboxing experience. Fans were left shaking their heads. “My kickboxing experience is an advantage not so much my knowledge of the sport. It is another one-on-one sport, the training and preparation is similar and at the end of the day you are in a fight. I have been fighting pretty much all my life.” He also told news “Yes Manny has great footwork. He is in and out and side to side, so being able to control the space in the ring is very important when fighting with someone with a style like Manny. Being a ring general is going to be a big part in this fight as it is with all my fights.”

Manny tells news that he is always ready to fight. “I will be ready,” Pacquiao said. “The time makes no difference. Well, it is a little bit different, but it is not a problem for me. I am ready to fight, it doesn’t matter if it is daytime or night time.” So why not against Mayweather?

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Pacquiao fight winner 2014 has been announced. Who won the Pacquiao fight tonight November 22 2014, what were the final Pacquiao boxing fight results tonight in Macau for 11/22/14, and what happened in the final Pacquiao vs Algieri 2014 fight? The fight winner tonight was Manny Pacquiao! The fight was not even close with Algieri suffering at least five knockdowns. For now, fans continue to wonder if there will be a Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2015 fight.

The Pacquiao fight winner results follows a big year for Manny Pacquiao trying to prove to news that he is still at the top of his game. As uncertainty looms about the future of any possible Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2015 fight, Manny tried to disprove critics tonight. In a news statement to TopRank, Manny said “As I have said before, boxing is my passion and public service is my calling. As I approach my title defense against Chris Algieri I have found that my passion for boxing has increased.” He added ” I do not feel old. I feel great and I find I am able to train as hard as I always have and I enjoy it. More importantly, I still enjoy boxing — a lot.”

Manny assured news that he would win tonight because his skills set is unchanged. “As long as my skills and my passion remain strong I want to continue my boxing career.” Manny added ” When I retire, I want it to be on my terms. I do not want to spend my retirement regretting that I walked away from boxing before I was ready. I do not want to come back and fight after I retire.”

But will Pacquiao ever retire? “I have not set a date or determined an age when I will retire. As long as I can keep fighting at the level I expect from myself I will continue my boxing career.” Pacman tell news that he has made goals that he is still trying to achieve. “My goals are to finish as a world champion, winning my remaining fights. Since the last Marquez fight I have approached every training camp and every opponent with 110% dedication. I would like to keep challenging myself in the opponents I will face in the future.”

Pacman came into tonight’s fight with a 56-4-3 record battling Algieri with a 20-0 record. And will there be a Mayweather vs Pacquiao 2015 fight? Manny does not mention Floyd by name. But he states “I do have one specific goal and that is to give the boxing fans the fight they have always asked for. I want that fight too. I believe good faith negotiations could produce that fight. But it is impossible to negotiate when you are the only one sitting at the table. Two fighters who WANT to fight each other have never been kept from fighting each other.” For more click HERE.

Pacquiao Fight Winner: Who won the Pacman Boxing Fight Tonight results 11/22/14 november 22, 2014 pacman

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Who is the Pacquiao fight winner 2014, and who won the Pacquiao boxing fight results tonight 11/22/14 in Macau? Fans get the Pacquiao results in roughly two hours from now. But even before the Pacquiao vs. Algieri start time, Manny Pacquiao is already the big winner, Bob Arum tells news. Pacman is winning with his biggest guaranteed payday tonight. But the bigger twist is that tonight’s fight winner takes home their money free of any IRS taxes. Pacquiao moved the fight from Las Vegas to Macau after battling the IRS and the Philippines for alleged unpaid taxes, in both countries.

The Pacquiao fight winner will get their paycheck without any IRS burden. Pacman is getting a guaranteed payday tonight of $24 million. But after PPV sales, the final check could exceed thirty million dollars. And the entire deal was brokered and kept outside of the U.S. That prompted Bob Arum to tell USA Today that tonight’s fight delivers “one of [Manny's] bigger purses”. Added to the mix is the absence of IRS taxes. Arum further told news that “This will be one of his bigger purses, and it’s free of US taxes because he’s not fighting in the United States. His net income will be by far his biggest [he will earn].”

Reports claim that, instead of paying 40% tax in the US, Pacquiao will not pay any Macau taxes. For Pacquiao, it has been a big year of tax battles. Both the IRS and the Philippine tax authorities are going after him for massive sums. The IRS claims that Pacquiao has not paid taxes on his fights from 2006 to 2010 in the US. They filed Federal Tax Lien for $18.3 million against him. Then his own country’s tax authority wanted him to post a cash bond of 3.3 billion pesos ($75.2 million) while he battles their claims. They also wanted to seize his assets. But Pacquiao won in the country’s Supreme Court the bail and the levy fight. “Let us now let the legal process take its course. For now, I am just glad I will be able to concentrate on training for my upcoming bout,” Pacquiao said in a statement at the time. At issue, the boxer claims that the Philippines has an agreement with the US that prevents its own citizens from being taxed twice. But the Philippines claim Pacquiao did not provide proof of paying U.S. taxes, while the IRS agrees.

This is not the first time that the boxer has fought in Macau. But Arum claims that tonight’s PPV sales will be a near record for the fighter. LALATE will have live round by round results tonight.
