ABS-CBN will air the “Battle For Greatness: Pacquiao vs Mayweather” on May 3 from 9AM to 3PM to give Kapamilyas a chance to witness the titanic battle between two legendary fighters of this generation.
It will be accompanied by a pre-fight show titled “Isang Bayan Para Kay Pacman” to tee off Sunday’s fight festivities. The pre-fight will air for one hour starting 9AM.
Sunday’s fight would be the biggest in recent history as arguably the two biggest superstars will finally collide after five years of playing possum. The purse will be more than $200 million excluding the pay-per-view returns. Manny Pacquiao stakes his pride and honor as the best Filipino fighter, ever as he goes up the ring in MGM Grand, with 100 million Filipinos rallying behind him. The Filipino ring icon also brings with him his 57-5-2 win-loss card that is spiked by 38 devastating knockouts. Mayweather, on the other hand, is staking his claim as “The Best Ever” as well as his immaculate professional record of 47-0.
All eyes will be on Pacquiao who has assured the Filipinos that the killer instinct is back and is raring to show the flamboyant American that he means business the moment Mayweather signed on the dotted line.
Tune in to ABS-CBN’s airing of the “Battle For Greatness: Pacquiao vs Mayweather” on Sunday, starting at 9AM.
