At least four major TV networks in the Philippines will broadcast the upcoming Mayweather-Pacquiao fight which will take place on May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum said the fight will bring around $35 million from foreign TV rights sales and a big chunk of this amount was sold to Solar Entertainment of the Philippines.
Solar CEO Wilson Tieng said it has been a longtime wish of Pacquiao to make the fight available to Filipoino audience via the local TV networks.
“It has been Manny’s wish for all to watch his fight,” Tieng said
The Philippines TV right holder have collaborated with three other TV networks that include, ABS-CBN News, GMA, and TV5 to make the fight available regular TV viewers.
For his part, Pacquiao thanked the major networks for having worked together in order to make the fight available to everyone in the Philippines.
Live coverage of the fight will also be heard on radio stations that are affiliated with the three major TV stations throughout the country.
GMA's Mike Enriquez thanked Solar Entertainment for partnering with GMA for the live feed from Las Vegas, Nevada.
"GMA Radio is once again proud to be a partner of Solar.... live and real-time in Las Vegas." Enriquez said.
Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach continues to work closely with Pacquiao in their effort to find a way to break into Mayweather's defense as they start sparring sessions with young fighters who can mimic Mayweather's fighting style.
Over at Mayweather's Gym in Las Vegas, news of Maweather having been knocked down by former foe and current sparring partner Zab Judah had spread like wild fire on social media but it was denied by Judah saying it isn't true.
Mayweather's adviser Leonard Ellerbe also denied the report. “They are really pushing Floyd, but nothing like that. It never happened.” he said.
