Boxing fans around the world are anticipating for, what many pundit have described as the biggest boxing bout in history and the gladiators are working really hard in making it a memorable one for the yearning fans.

Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Manny Pacquiao are really training hard in preparation of the  $300million fight against each other in May.


Mayweather, who is the undefeated welterweight champion kept fans updated of his progress with a series of pictures uploaded to social media website Shots.

The money man, who currently holds the WBC, WBA and Ring titles, shared snaps from within the gym as he was put through a rigorous pad workout by his trainer.

He  is expected to work with his father and uncle and has already booked the services of former opponent DeMarcus Corley as a sparring partner, according to reports.

Pacquiao, on his part, posted videos to Instagram from his Los Angeles training camp on Wednesday as he starts to spend more time in the gym in the run-up to the bout.
 
The Filipino showed off his hand speed inside the ring and out, dancing about and throwing punches before working on the speed ball.

Pacquiao also posted a message for his fans as he ups the intensity with the fight just two months away. 

'Day 2 of my training feels good,' he wrote. 'Thank you fans for always updating my training God Is good all the time thank you Lord.'

Pacquiao's coach Roach is trying to keep his man focused on the task ahead, rather than getting involved with any verbal sparring with Mayweather.

'Manny has not been in with a lot of trash-talkers,' said Roach. 'Mayweather is like Ali in the sense that he will talk to you a lot in the fight. He will rest on the ropes, chatter in your ear and try to get you out of your game.

'I'm really not sure how Manny is going to react to that. He can't let himself get distracted.' 

Rapper 50 Cent, who is a former associate of Mayweather revealed on Tuesday that he was planning to put a $1m bet on Floyd winning the fight.

The $300million bout was finally agreed, after much posturing from both camps, for May 2 at the MGM Grand in Vegas and both fighters have begun their quest for peak physical condition.

The pair will come face-to-face next week for the only time before the week of the fight when they hold a press conference in Los Angeles on March 11.
