Mayweather Vs Pacquiao By The Numbers

It’s the fight of a generation. With revenues and all kinds of figures never seen before in boxing. With hours to go, here’s all the numbers that matter ahead of boxing biggest fight. 

47 – The number of professional fights, and wins that Mayweather has recorded. With a perfect record of 47-0 right now, three further victories would put him at 50-0, a feat never achieved in boxing before. Rocky Marciano holds the record with 49-0.

5 – The amount of losses Manny Pacquiao has recorded in his professional career. Pacquiao’s record stands at 57-5-2 meaning he’s fought considerably more that Floyd. Despite being voted boxer of the decade, Manny doesn’t have that perfect record. A defeat to Mayweather could tarnish all that work and reputation fully.

$500,000,000 – The total value that the fight could come to be worth. The image below illustrates just where all of that money is coming from.

38 – The number of knockouts Manny Pacquiao has handed out to opposition fighters. Pacman is a punching machine, making him the most likely to land that knockout punch if one does come.

500 – only 500 tickets, of the 16,800 seater-arena in the MGM grand were sold to the public. Why? Despite being illegal, it’s expected a lot of powerful people within boxing have withheld seats as they plan to sell them on the second hand market for figures far, far above the asking price.

29% The percentage of ex-pros who would trust the judges to make the correct call if the fight went to a tight decision. A damning indictment and just one of many surprises from the Guardian’s ex-pro survey
