I've had a look at Olly Murs' website, Ciaran (I had hardcore fetish porn open on another tab, ready and waiting to be quickly selected in case anyone walked in). It looks like he's in Nottingham on May 1st? This fight is May 2nd.

I thought I was over this fight years ago. I purposefully skipped past any article that talked about the possibility of this fight happening or who'd win or whatever for about three years until the signing was finally imminent. But Jeez, I'm getting sucked in gently now. I'm watching promos and re-watching old fights again (common opponents mainly).


The fact that the arguments for Manny having a chance are growing on me after about two years where I couldn't see anything other than a Floyd decision win is helping.

Floyd Mayweather's bout with Manny Pacquiao set to be screened on Sky after broadcasters beat BoxNation to mega-fight

  • Sky had been in fierce completion from Frank Warren’s BoxNation channel but are believed to be on the brink of clinching British broadcasting rights
  • Warren is understood to have offered the higher upfront fee of guaranteed payment
  • But Sky are thought to have prevailed by offering the promoters a share of their pay-per-view revenue in addition
  • It remains to be seen if they need to mark another first by raising the pay-per-view cost to their subscribers through their psychological £20 barrier

Sky Sports are expected to be declared the winners of the bidding war for the right to the mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.


Sky has been in fierce completion from Frank Warren’s BoxNation channel but are believed to be on the brink of clinching the British broadcasting rights for the richest fight in ring history


Sky will certainly need to break the pay-per-view record of 1.2m viewers here for Ricky Hatton’s crushing defeat by Mayweather in 2007.


Those numbers suggest that Sky will have guaranteed in excess of £10m.


US networks HBO and Showtime are sharing the broadcast in America, where Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum is predicting a record-shattering four million buys.


If he is right, at $99.95, then the evening of May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is set up to become the half a billion dollar fight.

I think the 5-year negotiation for this fight is more like a 5-year promotion for me. Should the fight happened 3 or 4 years ago, both boxers could have earned less. Mayweather is expected to earn way more than the combined amount Ali and Frazier took home in their Thrilla in Manila fight in today's dollars. With that being said, people SHOULD expect a multi-million dollar match. As far as the fight is concerned, the only way for Manny to win is to score a knockout victory. Period. We all know who's going to win if he leaves his fate to the judges. but I am still expecting Floyd to step out of his usual game plan to engage Manny. Here's to more boxing news for future reference on this. Edited by Jase01

Sky have confirmed it will be priced at £19.95 despite rumours they were going to charge more.


The cost of the event will be £19.95 and €24.95 across all forms of booking up until midnight Friday 1 May. From then on the cost will still be £19.95 / €24.95 if bookings are made via remote control and online, but will cost £24.95 / €29.95 if booked via the phone.


Please note an additional £2 booking fee still applies if bookings are made via a telephone agent. Cable customers please contact your operator for booking information.
