We are now less than a month away from the historic boxing match between unbeaten pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and the eight-division champ Manny Pacquiao. The hype surrounding the fight is already unprecedented but will surely reach a fever pitch in the coming weeks, and to kick things off HBO has released its official TV spot promoting the much-awaited showdown. The 30-second clip, which was reportedly filmed at a studio in Los Angeles on the evening of March 11, shows both fighters walking toward each other against the backdrop of the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, where the fight will held. Check it out above.
While Roach isn’t going to get hung up on what others report, he indicates a close contact recently confirmed Floyd has struggled to deal with the intensity of sparring sessions, but not necessarily against Judah. Roach’s comments were posted by Carlos Boogs of Boxing Scene:
He knocked out a couple of girls (in sparring) or something like (that). The thing is, I got a report from one of my friends in Mexico—that one of his Mexican boys beat the s–t out of him two days in a row. So I really don’t care about stuff like that. I really don’t care what he’s up to, because I have to get my guy ready for my fight and that’s what I’m thinking about.
