FIGHT FANS the world over are still rejoicing over the recent announcement that the fight everyone has wanted to see for over five years – Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao – is at last official for May 2.

It remains to be seen, though, where British boxing fans will be able to see the fight.

In the U.S, Showtime and HBO, who will each carry the richest fight in the history of the sport, are reportedly set to charge armchair fans a record $99.95 (£65) for the blockbuster that will go down in Las Vegas.
