2 Old Farts Set To Fight

From Fox News: The Fight is finally on.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. will meet Manny Pacquiao on May 2 in a welterweight showdown that will be boxing's richest fight ever. Mayweather himself announced the bout Friday after months of negotiations, posting a picture of the signed contract online.
The long anticipated bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas will almost surely break every financial record ever, and make both boxers richer than ever. Mayweather could earn $120 million or more, while Pacquiao's split of the purse will likely be around $80 million.
The fight, which matches boxing's two biggest attractions in recent years, has been in the making for five years. It finally came together in recent months with both fighters putting aside past differences over various issues -- including drug testing and television rights -- to reach agreement.
I'm sorry but if this fight happened 5 years ago, this would have been a great fight.
Now, these fighters, while good, are past their prime and pretty long in the tooth.
And soon, they will start looking something like this old boxer (race of boxers not important)
