Alex is in Vegas for the fight for the ages, between the two men considered currently the two best boxers in the world, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The welterweights will face off at the MGM Grand In Las Vegas, in a match that brings back the 1980s, considered the last golden age for boxing. Mayweather, undefeated in 47 professional fights dating back to 1996, who has won world titles in 5 different weight classes. And Pacquiao, 6-time world champion, with a 59-5 lifetime professional record. Millions of dollars involved, for the fighters, the Pay-Per-View distributor, and the Las Vegas oddsmakers.
