Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout: Foreman, Tyson, De La Hoya, others predict

Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout: Foreman, Tyson, De La Hoya, others predict
It's finally here. Just days to go until the 'fight of the century' as the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather faces Manny Pacquiao in the richest bout in boxing history.
The contest at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is expected to generate more than £300m for the pair, with the spilt going 60/40 in Mayweather's favour.
Mayweather, 38, is an 11-time, five-weight world champion, while the Filipino Pacquiao, 36,  has won versions of the world title at a record eight different weights.
WBA and WBC welterweight titleist Mayweather's record stands at 47-0, while WBO champion Pacquiao has lost five of his 64 fights, with two draws.

The greats and the good from the fight game, from Mike Tyson to Amir Khan have all given their predictions over how they see the fight ending.
George Foreman (Pacquiao) "If we’ve got good judges this time, it's go Pacquiao," said Foreman. "Mayweather starts off early kind of looking for his timing and ... Pacquiao will pot shot him and get ahead on points and he’ll stay ahead. He’ll slow down later on and Mayweather will take on the more aggression but he doesn’t have a right hand. He’ll hurt his right hand. He can't get a knockout. So he’ll just have to cruise on in and win or lose the fight just by a couple of points."
