Watch Showtime Mayweather vs Pacquiao Live Stream May 02

Watch Showtime Pay-Per-View Boxing Fight between undefeated, five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr and eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao Live Streaming. Floyd Mayweather Jr (47-0-0, 26KOs) is preparing well for his upcoming battle for the WBO, WBC, WBA Welterweight Title against Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38KOs) at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on May 02, 2015. Gamalier Rodriguez (25-2-3, 17KOs) and Vasyl Lomachenko (3-1-0, 1KOs) will clash for the Featherweight Title in the co-main event.

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is, as of February 2015, 38 years old, still undefeated, with a perfect professional record of 47 fights and 0 losses. On June 6, 2008, six months after defeating Ricky Hatton by a tenth-round TKO, Mayweather announced his retirement from boxing. At the time, plans were in motion for a rematch with Oscar De La Hoya, which was going to take place September 20, 2008. "This decision was not an easy one for me to make as boxing is all I have done since I was a child," Mayweather said. "However, these past few years have been extremely difficult for me to find the desire and joy to continue in the sport." At the time 31-year-old Mayweather registered 39 wins and no losses in his historic career. At the time of his retirement, The Ring magazine had Mayweather ranked as the number 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, with Manny Pacquiao at number 2.

On May 2, 2009, the day of Pacquiao's fight against Ricky Hatton, Mayweather announced that he was coming out of retirement and would fight Juan Manuel Márquez, The Ring lightweight champion and number 2 pound-for-pound fighter, on July 18, 2009, in a welterweight non-title fight. Marquez had previously fought Pacquiao in two controversial outings: they fought to a twelve-round draw on May 8, 2004, and Pacquiao was awarded a twelve-round split decision win on March 15, 2008. Mayweather played down Pacquiao's newfound stardom at his press conference, stating: "If he wins tonight, don't be all shocked ... Cause guess what? I beat (Hatton) when he was undefeated. Pacquiao beat Oscar, it don't matter. Going down to 147 pounds was too much for (De La Hoya), he was dead after the first round. I also think that Marquez beat him twice. When you talk boxing, you talk Floyd Mayweather."

Pacquiao would go on to defeat Hatton by a second-round knockout to win The Ring junior welterweight title. The win made him the second boxer in history to win titles in six weight divisions, the first being Oscar De La Hoya.

Mayweather vs. Marquez was postponed until September 19, 2009, due to a rib injury suffered by Mayweather. Despite being out of the ring for 21 months, Mayweather looked as sharp as ever and dominated the fight, winning by a lopsided twelve-round unanimous decision. After the bout, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe stated that a fight with Pacquiao was the "next obvious choice from a marketing standpoint."

On November 14, 2009, Pacquiao stopped Puerto Rican star Miguel Cotto in twelve rounds to win the WBO welterweight title. Pacquiao's victory sparked a media frenzy and fans were quick to subsequently demand a fight between the two of them, despite the fact that the actual fight itself had not officially been made yet.
