Even after all their fights posted on demand, after the weigh in, after all the “Inside Mayweather Pacquiao” episodes, when i woke up this morning, it finally felt real.  After almost 6 years of salivating over this fight, Floyd Mayweather (47-0, 26 KO’s) and Manny Pacquaio (57-5-2, 38 KO’s) will finally happen tonight at 9 PM ET time on a joint HBO and Showtime PPV mega event.  Widley considered the #1 and #2 pound for pound fighters in the world, they will put it all on the line to night for boxing dominance.  All titles will be on the line, as Manny Pacquiao will put up his WBO welterweight title, while Floyd Mayweather will put up his WBA, WBC, and TheRing welterweight tities.  The weight in was the largest ever recorded, and to my knowledge, the first to charge admission to the event.  Also on the fight card, Leo Santa Cruz (28-0-1, 16 KO’s) will take on Jose Cayetano (17-3, 4 KO’s), and Vasyl Lomachenko (3-1, 1 KO) will take on Gamalier Rodriguez (25-2-3, 17 KO’s).  Here is the tale of the tape, and my predictions for all 3 fights:

Predictions:

  • Leo Santa Cruz  —  def  —  Jose Cayetano  —  via  —  KO 3rd round
  • Vasyl Lomachenko  —  def  —  Gamalier Rodriguez  —  via  —  Unanimous Decision 12 rounds
  • Floyd Mayweather  —  def  —  Manny Pacquiao  —  via  —  Majority Decision 12 rounds
