Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao have finally agreed to fight inside the ring. Following many years of ducking each other, the matchup between these two pound-for-pound kings still seems too good to be true. Yesterday, the two fighters met for a press conference promoting the May 2 showdown, reassuring fans the matchup is official. The press conference presented the last opportunity for the two fighters to trade verbal jabs until the weigh-ins, as the two will be doing very limited joint publicity to promote the colossal bout. Although the presser was quite tame in comparison to Mayweather’s past promotion antics and opponent-taunting, it did offer some notable moments, including the attendance of pop singer Justin Bieber. Enjoy the event in its entirety in the video above, supplied by Showtime.
