Six years of speculation and seemingly never-ending negotiations will be put to rest on May 2, the day that championship boxers Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. and Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao finally come face to face inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Drama won’t be in short supply, as both men bring plenty of credentials to the ring—Mayweather remains undefeated after nearly 20 years of professional boxing, and Pacquiao is the only boxer in history to win world titles in eight different weight classes—for a match that’s now slated to gross an unprecedented amount of more than $400 million.

Of course, that’s not to say all of the action will take place inside the ring: this is Vegas, after all. Expect all manner of over-the-top revelry to make its way up and down the Strip and beyond. From pre-fight warm- ups to post-fight parties, we’ll be bringing you behind the scenes and into the pit of the Fight of the Century. Stay tuned for even more exclusive content beginning April 17!
