WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao has given his first interview since rival Floyd Mayweather confirmed that the two will duke it out in a unification bout on May 2.

Speaking to ABS-CBN, the 35 year-old said he was pleased that the fans would finally be happy that the fight was sealed and is now looking forwards to sharing the ring with WBC and WBA title holder Mayweather in Las Vegas.

Mayweather, 37, also puts his awesome 47-0 record on the line against Pacquiao in a fight that could be worth up to $500m once all the numbers are crunched and pay-per-view sales are taken into account.

Showtime and HBO have agreed to share the rights to the fight, whilst Sky Sports and BoxNation are set to fight it out  for the UK rights.
