The highly-anticipated Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight is just hours away into reality. The orthodox and undefeated Mayweather faces the southpaw and Filipino icon Pacquiao in the biggest and grandeous fight in the history of boxing on May 2 at the MGM Grand Las Vegas Nevada.

On February, both Mayweather and Pacquiao aggreed to fight against each other for the May 2 spectacle. Mayweather was reluctant fo fight Pacquiao in the last five years as he evaded an encounter. Pacquiao also was relying on his promoter Bob Arum to choose his opponent until last year, in a fight over Chris Algieri, when the Filipino boxer mentioned about his intent of fighting the American.

The Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight is expected to gross a whopping $500 million revenue from advertisements, gate sales, sponsorships and Pay-per-views. The Pay-per-view alone can reached a number beyond imagination, three million plus buys which can be converted into $300 million. Ticket sales also reached around $74 million while television coverage contracts at $32 million.

The purse split for this fight is 60% for Mayweather and 40% for Pacquiao. Mayweather is estimated to be $200 million richer while Pacquiao’s $120 million after this fight.

Live Stream?

The official Mayweather-Pacquiao live stream is available in through Pay-Per-View at Showtime and HBO. Surely, there’s no free Mayweather vs Pacquiao live stream because live streaming sites were blocked as Showtime and HBO filed lawsuit and won by obtaining TRO

“This temporary restraining order is issued and effective as of 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time on April 30, 2015 and will expire at 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time on May 7, 2015,” said Judge George Wu.

“Plaintiffs have established that they will suffer irreparable harm in the absence of immediate relief,” Wu added today in granting the TRO. “Among other things, Defendants’ threatened infringement would strip Plaintiffs of the critical right of first transmission and publication of an extremely valuable live sporting event, would interfere with Plaintiffs’ relationships with third parties, is likely to damage Plaintiffs’ goodwill among consumers, and will deprive Plaintiffs of revenue that will be difficult or impossible to calculate, but is likely far in excess of any amount that Defendants could repay to Plaintiffs in damages even if the amount could be calculated.”
