Want To Watch The Mayweather/Pacquiao Fight For Free? Move To Mexico
Mexico – It’s officially fight week for the biggest match of this generation. Those south of the border looking to watch Floyd Mayweather take on Manny Pacquiao this Saturday just got some really good news. According to TMZ sports, the two major networks in the country, Televisa and Azteca, have come to an agreement to air the fight for free in Mexico this weekend.
The World Boxing Commission, one of the sanctioning bodies for the fight, is based out of Mexico City and told TMZ, “Televisa and Azteca must be recognized for their great commitment, for bringing to Mexico this bout for free. This has never, ever happened in any country of the world.”
The WBC has a long history with both fighters, and their Welterweight Championship that Mayweather currently holds is up for grabs in the fight. They also work with the networks in Mexico often, so it seems that they lent a helping hand in making the fight free in their home country.
For everybody else, Mayweather and Pacquiao face off this Saturday on pay-per-view for the hefty price of $89.99 in standard definition and $99.99 in HD.
How about Mexico swooping in and stealing America’s thunder for the most popular fight of our generation? While tickets and hotels are going through the roof, Mexico is calmly entering the conversation and showing the fight for free. While us schmucks in the USA are spending 100 god damn dollars to watch two guys hit each other with gloves on, the fine people of Mexico will be watching it for free. Power move by Mexico, and I respect the hell out of it. If I could afford it, I’d fly down to Mexico and watch the fight for free, but that doesn’t make any sense at all, so I’m just going to drink a lot of beer and watch it here. Mayweather by decision. Mark it down.
