The fight boxing fans have been begging for will finally come to fruition on Saturday, May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will square off in one of the most anticipated boxing matches of all time and the latest boxing predictions and odds from Bovada.lv are expecting the fight to go the distance. A 12-round affair, the Over 11.5 rounds is drawing -310 odds and Mayweather, undefeated in 47 professional fights, is the favorite to win the battle for the WBA Super Welterweight, WBC Welterweight and The Ring Welterweight titles at -225 odds.
Many believe Mayweather vs Pacquiao would have been a more intriguing fight four or five years ago; however, the latest boxing odds would suggest it is still going to be a competitive and attention grabbing scrap.
Mayweather, one of the greatest counter-punchers in the history of the sport, is, as mentioned, still undefeated while Pacquiao has rebounded from unexpected losses to Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez back in 2012 with the three straight wins.
And Pacquiao is, without question, one of, if not the most, dangerous opponent Mayweather has ever faced. The Filipino southpaw remains devastatingly quick and he still packs a mean punch as well, especially for a fighter of his stature.
It remains to be seen if Pacquiao will have enough to finish Mayweather, though. Pacquiao’s power, while substantial, has clearly diminished over the last several years as his last seven wins have come by decision. That power may have made the difference for him had these two met in 2008 or 2009, but it probably will not effect the outcome on Saturday night.
Mayweather remains, perhaps, the most illusive target in boxing anyway so the chances of an older Pacquiao connecting on a finishing shot are not good. And that is not good for Pacquiao because that, in all probability, is what he will need to hand the always brass Mayweather his first career loss.
Mayweather vs Pacquiao Boxing Predictions: Mayweather to win by unanimous decision at -225 odds ($225 wins $100).
