As big fight week approaches, World Boxing News can proudly announce a partnership with top UK and Ireland bookmakers Paddy Power to bring great offers to our readers for the Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao clash on May 2.
The whole world has been anticipating a super-fight pitting the two pound for pound stars against each other for some six years now, and finally, they will trade blows next weekend at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas live on both sides of the Atlantic via PPV.
Paddy Power will be offering new UK and Ireland customers great offers for the fight throughout the build-up as the final countdown begins for the most lucrative boxing match in history between two of the best pugilists to ever grace the ring.
World number one ‘Money’ is set to pocket a massive $150m dollar purse for the contest with the ‘Pacman’ to earn around $100m in an event predicted to overhaul Mayweather’s previous record-holder against Oscar De La Hoya in May 2007.
Both fighters are currently edging towards wrapping up their camps ready for their arrivals in Nevada early next week just as tickets for the pay-per-view event sold out costing lucky fans thousands of dollars for the cheapest of seats.
The latest betting with Paddy Power sees WBA and WBC welterweight king Mayweather a 4/9 on favorite to claim his 48th career victory in a row, whilst Pacquiao is available at 15/8 against to inflict a maiden loss in 19 years on his nemesis.
The smart money in the betting seems to be a Mayweather points win at 8/13, although the fight to go the distance looks to be a good move at 3/10 as both fighters haven’t registered a stoppage in some years. Mayweather is 13/2 to repeat what Juan Manuel Marquez did to Pacquiao in December 2012 with Pacquiao himself at 11/2 to score a KO.
WBN readers based in the UK and Ireland only can expect enhanced odds for the match-up when fight week kicks off on Monday, so keep a lookout for the great offers to come!
