It's official: boxer Floyd Mayweather announced he and Manny Pacquiao will square up in the ring May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Mayweather made the announcement by showing off a few signatures via the social media app Shots. Mayweather is an investor of the app.
According to ESPN, the agreement had been signed for days — and contracts were also signed by HBO and Showtime, which will surely make this boxing match one of the biggest spectacles in boxing history. Mayweather and Pacquiao agreed to a 60-40 split of the revenue — which could be hundreds of millions of dollars.
