Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Anyone have any ideas on how to watch the upcoming gladiator fight?

Who do you think will win?

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Such a big fight and one I have been looking forward to for so long. Too close to call who will be the victor for me. Still searching for a venue to watch it as well.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

I think Pacquiao is aging and may have past his peak. He's the underdog in the fight, which seems to motivate him more. In fact, I like Pacquiao's life stroy for that reason. Mayweather, on the other hand, is extremely arrogant. Even more reason why I would love to see Pacquia beat him.

Current Vegas odds: Mayweather -210, Pacquiao +170

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

DMAX has shown the last few Mayweather fights. As virtually no one in Germany or Switzerland has ever heard of these two I don't see any reason why the fight won't still be on this channel.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

I haven't seen it in the program listings yet. It costs $100 to get on Pay-per-view in the US. Tickets start at $1,000. Scalped for $5,000. The purse is over $200 Million. I can't imagine these promoters will be giving it out for free.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Sure, in the US it's a big deal. But as with all these things it's supply and demand. And there's not much demand to see either Mayweather or Pacquiao fight in this part of the world. If it was Klitschko or Sturm in a super fight then perhaps it would be different. But as it is I reckon the promoters will go with the best offer they get in order to have the fight screened in as many countries as possible. I expect to see more of a bidding war between broadcasters in the UK however where both Mayweather and Pacquiao are more widely known.

Although this fight should have happened 6 years ago, I’m still looking forward to it. No doubt it’ll turn out to be an absolute stinker!

Looks as if Sky Sports will win the bidding war to show the fight.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Sky Box Office (PPV) just won the rights to screen the fight in the UK. Still no news about who will be broadcasting in Europe, though I very much doubt it'll be PPV.

They are charging $100 pay-per-view in the US. I wonder how much Sky will charge. The purse in this fight might reach half a $billion, though they would never really report accurate revenue from overseas.

Pacquiao and Mayweather already won $$$, even if either of them is knocked out. Nice business model.

I just hope the game isn't fixed just to have a rematch. I'll be watching with a couple of Filipino friends and split the bill.

I think if FM wins he'll most probably retire, if not, then there will be a rematch.

I imagine it would be early in the morning for us. If anyone knows if such a pub exist, please post. I'll buy you a drink.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

If I am allowed to predict, may weather will win most likely split decision.
His defense technique and spatial awareness seem otherworldly.
He is a guy that even tho is greedy and cocky, takes boxing very seriously.
Pacquiao is way out of his prime his style seems to rely more on the physical aspects, while mayweather can easily rely on his vast boxing experiance and technique.

Pacquiao will make it a good fight but mayweather will take it home.
