Many promoters have waited a long time for this fight. Some thought that this fight would have happened at least ten years ago when both fighters were still in their prime. The sport of boxing has lost a lot of fan attention to competing sports such as Mixed Martial Arts and Professional Wrestling. Boxing use to be lead by the heavy weight division but no one can even recall the current heavy weight champion and many have to go back to Mike Tyson before they can engage in a relevant discussion of boxing in the heavy weight class. Mayweather and Pacquiao are the only relevant names in boxing and many do not think that boxing will be relevant again after this fight if either or both fighters decide to retire. Their is no relevant opponent for either fighter outside of each other and the entire boxing world is treating this fight as if it is the last major fight in the history of boxing.
