Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao took to the scales yesterday afternoon at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, weighing for tonight’s highly-anticipated Mayweather-Pacquiao pay-per-view event.
Mayweather (47-0, 26 KO) and Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KO) are fighting at the standard welterweight limit of 147 pounds, with Mayweather’s WBC and WBA and Pacquiao’s WBO titles all on the line, as well as the recognized lineal championship of the division, currently held by Mayweather, to which Pacquiao is considered the true No. 1 contender.
The fight is also arguably for pound-for-pound supremacy, as Mayweather, 38, is recognized as the best in the world, while Pacquiao, 36, is looking to claim the title he once challenged for, if only in the minds of the fans. This time, we get to actually see them fight for the crown, instead of just imagining. And the final step comes today.
The weigh-in will air live at 6 pm EST, and you can watch on TV with HBO, Showtime, or ESPN, who will be airing a live SportsCenter from fight central in Las Vegas. If you’re not near a TV, you can also stream the weigh-in online, right here at SBNation.com.
