Boxing legends talk about Pacquiao vs Mayweather

An elite group of prizefighters who have gone toe-to-toe with both Pacquiao and Mayweather share their thoughts on the upcoming megafight.



With less than a week to go before Manny Pacquiao collides with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the ring, cable network HBO has released another documentary to hype the highly-anticipated bout on May 2 (May 3 in Manila).

The half-hour special entitled “Mayweather/Pacquiao: The Legends Speak” is hosted by HBO Boxing commentators Jim Lampley and Max Kellerman and features an elite group of prizefighters who have gone toe-to-toe with both Pacquiao and Mayweather.

Lampley sits down with Oscar De La Hoya and Shane Mosley to know their respective opinions and assessments regarding the 12-round welterweight title unification match, while middleweight titleholder Miguel Cotto and former British boxing sensation Ricky Hatton give their individual insights on the heavily-hyped showdown.

On the other hand, Kellerman spearheads a roundtable discussion with high-profile panelists such as George Foreman, Lennox Lewis and Bernard Hopkins to lend their historical perspective on the aforementioned super-fight.
