FACT: Mayweather-Pacquiao is Making a Blast!
Admit it, (almost) everybody is getting crazier and crazier because of this thing called “Fight of the Century”. People wants to know the details and updates, the tickets, the sides of Hollywood celebrities including their bets.

Well, I am not a sports enthusiast, I don’t even have a sports (though I play billiards with my handsome guy, and started to try darts 2 weeks back). But for some reasons, maybe the guy behind this famous fight is a Filipino, not just a Filipino but considered in some ways as OFW. Yes, that’s our guy, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, fighting against TMT’s Floyd Mayweather Jr. Some Sports analysts say that Pacman is the underdog in this fight. Maybe. Maybe it’s because they made 47-0 standing of Floyd the basis of the term “underdog”. But some says that this will be the best time for Pacman to show what he really got in the ring, and shock the world.

Anyways, I will not talk about how they fight, why they fight (probably because of pressure, and chiching – money!). I blog this article to gather the information why this fight is the most controversial sports headline these days. I checked some websites and summarized the reasons, the stories, the histories and all that, about this fight. Some might be exaggerated, don’t worry, I wrote down all my sources at the end of this article. You can ask them if you want to. +_+
