Fight of the Century

Charity Benefits From Mega-Fight

The Floyd Mayweather V.S Manny Pacquiao weigh-in was one of the most highly anticipated events of its kind. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao appeared in front of a sold-out MGM crowd, and the fans were interested to see how both fighters looked on the eve of the biggest fight of all time. The fans were literally shouting for both fighters, and the atmosphere was electric according to Daniel Amen.

Normally, it’s usually free to attend a weigh-in, but this one was different. Each member of the audience was charged $10 to watch the historic event, but thankfully, the money will not be going to Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. Instead, the money earned from the royalties of the weigh-in will be given to a charity, and it seems that Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are happy about that.

Both promoters figured that there was enough money to be made from the actual fight, and that an event like this should give back to the community. Both fighters are making more than $100 million for 36-minutes of work, and at least the proceeds from the weigh-in will be given to those less fortunate.
