One of the most well known boxers of the world Mike Tyson is excited about the fight between the American, Floyd Mayweather and Filipino, Manny Pacquiao. The bout will take place on 2 May at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

People all around the world have been talking about the bout, which has been dubbed as the fight of the century and the former undisputed heavyweight champion feels that the American has never really been tested.

The fight is expected to be a very competitive one as the American and the Filipino have started their respective training with their trainers. Freddie Roach, Pacquiao's trainer has been vocal about the bout and believes that the Filipino will defeat the American.

Mike Tyson feels that Pacquiao will open up the American, who will also be made to throw more punches than usual.

"You need to put constant pressure on Floyd," Tyson told mediapersons at the 'Champs' premier.

"Be in front of him all the time, but moving side to side and punching from angles. Manny is going to feint Floyd out of position a lot and make him throw more punches than he is used to, and that will open Floyd up."

People involved in the sports of boxing have been talking about Pacquiao's aggression along with his quick feet in the ring, which could prove to a major factor on the 2 May bout.

But one would not be able to discount Mayweather's skills inside the ring as no one would go undefeated, if he does not possess some major weapons of his own.

"He has never really been tested," said the baddest man on the planet.

"Whatever happens in this fight, I really think that Floyd is going to be hit and hurt more than he has ever been before. We're going to see how tough he is."

The American is yet to be beaten in his professional career of 47 bouts, where he has knocked out 26 opponents. Will the fight against the Filipino prove to be his 48th victory or will Mayweather lose his first bout?

Anything can happen at MGM Grand. Boxing fans around the world are eagerly waiting for the bout to take place and winner of the fight might well determine the greatest ever boxer in their category.
