If their staredown at the pre-fight press conference didn’t affect enough emotion, the one for their official commercial should certainly get people’s adrenaline going.
The official Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao commercial was released at midnight, Tuesday, April 7 Manila time on various social media networks, showing the two fighters meeting face-to-face in their ring attire with the MGM Grand in Las Vegas off in the horizon.
Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 knockouts) showed his Roberto Duran-esque snarl while Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) appeared calm and subdued (and noticeably larger than Pacquiao).
The fight takes place May 2 (May 3 in the Philippines) and will settle the debate over who was truly the better between the two. But the more immediate question is, does the commercial make you more excited for the fight?
