Mayweather vs Pacquiao Press Conference: Time and live stream
It may not be quite as dramatic as the fight but will it be the next best thing?
Today, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao faceoff for the first time.
So what time is the presser?
The event is scheduled for 4:30pm EST but fans who tune in at that time should be prepared to wait a few minutes for the festivities to get underway.
For fights of this magnitude, there are usually three press events. However, today's Floyd vs Manny presser, some 52 days prior to the fight, will serve as the only event of its kind for this mega showdown.
The fight will likely be the biggest in boxing history and is six years in the making. As a result, some insist there's no need for added hype.
What to look for
When the combatants stand face-to-face, don't be surprised if Floyd is a solid two inches taller than his Filipino foe.
Will we see either fighter dish out threats? Floyd and Manny aren't exactly chummy.
Fireworks may erupt between the trainers who are bitter enemies. For years, Freddie Roach and Floyd Mayweather Sr., have been involved in numerous verbal sparring sessions. Today, boxing fans may once again be treated to some entertaining, pre-fight banter from the chief seconds.
Some, however, expect a docile, anti-climactic session.
What will happen?
Tune in at 4:30 pm ET to the Mayweather vs Pacquiao press conference.
