Floyd Mayweather faces Manny Pacquiao in the “fight of the century” tonight on pay-per-view, with the main card broadcast beginning at 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This is the first time that premium cable giants HBO and Showtime have worked together on a fight since 2002’s Lennox Lewis vs Mike Tyson event, which generated record money for the time. Five years later, Mayweather’s fight with Oscar De La Hoya broke all the records. In 2013, Mayweather’s fight with Canelo Alvarez set new marks for PPV revenue and live gate revenue.
Tonight, every record falls, as the biggest fight in the sport has finally come after five years of waiting.
