The fight is finally here, almost. In 24 hours the two will finally square off and the debate will come to a close. Both fighters look ready. If you believe one was going to win all week, I doubt the weigh-ins changed that. Clearly Pacquiao is embracing the underdog roll and seems to be loose and comfortable with that. Mayweather has the pressure of the unbeaten record and facing arguably his toughest opponent, but that pressure is something he’s handled his whole career.
