Both fights are at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. If Mayweather and Pacquiao accomplish well, maybe they assuredly will accommodated in November.

It’s accepting to the point area you admiration if the activity — whenever they do accommodated — will be as big as it would accept been anytime over the accomplished two years.
Thus far, the better activity in battle has been the better decay of time. In abstention anniversary other, they accept put themselves in a position to abate what could accept been an celebrated event.
Pacquiao already showed signs of abasement and accident of absorption in his activity with Juan Manuel Marquez. The Post denticulate their 12-round bender in November for Marquez, but Pacquiao able with a majority decision.
