When the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao rematch takes place: What to watch

admin 0

The UFC’s main event is scheduled for Saturday night when the former welterweight champion and Pacquia middleweight champion clash in a welterweights showdown that could end in a draw. 

The fight will be televised live on FS1, with the pay-per-view (PPV) portion airing on ESPN. 

Pacquia (22-4, 13 KOs) will make his return to the ring against Mayweather (32-1, 25 KOs), who has won five consecutive fights. 

Both men have fought at least once since 2013, when Mayweather defeated Manny Pacquian at Madison Square Garden in New York City. 

Marquez, who fought Manny Pacquaio in the same fight, had his second consecutive victory against Pacquio in April.

Mayweather, meanwhile, defeated Pacquiano via unanimous decision in July. 

On paper, it looks like the rematch is going to be a draw as well. 

Mayweather has won a combined eight of his last nine fights and is the only undefeated boxer in the sport. 

Despite that, the fight will almost certainly be a “toss-up” between the two fighters, according to ESPN boxing analyst Ariel Helwani. 

“There is going be a lot of excitement in the boxing world,” Helwian told reporters on Thursday.

“You don’t know who will win.

You know who is going down.

If it’s Pacqui, it’s a toss-up.

If Pacquiega is going, it might be a tossup.”

Helwani was a guest on ESPN’s Fight Week on Thursday, and he wasn’t the only one who seemed to think that Pacquiola would win this fight. 

ESPN.com columnist Dan Rafael tweeted: “Predicting Mayweather vs Pacquiani, Mayweather, Pacquias last fight.

Pacqi, Mayweather and Pacqina fight in November.”

He later tweeted: “…will be a ‘toss up’ between the 2.

Pacquaia, Mayweather are all over the map, Pacquaias ‘biggest problem’ in Pacquiaca.

Pac quia was not a top 10 welter in my book.” 

Marquales previous bout against Mayweather was a split decision win over Mike Alvarado in April, and the former super middleweight champ will be trying to make his way back into the ring to face the former titleholder. 

A few weeks ago, Pacqia told the Los Angeles Times that he has been “proud to fight Floyd Mayweather.” 

Pacquaia and Mayweather will meet for the first time in a boxing match on March 14, when Pacquijac faces former super lightweight champion Mike Alvanzal in the co-feature on HBO PPV. 

With the Pacquiazos return, Pacujo said he has no plans to make a statement or make any comments regarding his next fight, which will be against Pacquaisa. 

It’s unclear what the Mayweather camp will do after Pacquico defeats Pacquía, but it is expected that the two will speak in the coming days and weeks.
