Boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao clash tonight in the ‘Fight of the Century’ in Las Vegas, with the fight being screened live on Sky Sports.

The long-awaited world welterweight battle will take place at the MGM Grand on the famous Las Vegas strip after 8pm local time.

Las Vegas is eight hours behind the UK, meaning Mayweather vs Pacquiao will not start in the UK until after 4am on Sunday, May 3.

Following the undercard fights, the ring walk is expected sometime between 3.45am and 4.30am.

The fight is available in the UK through pay-per-view on Sky Sports Box Office, with coverage beginning at midnight.

At Friday’s weigh-in, Mayweather tipped the scales at 146lbs, with Manny 2lbs below the 147lbs limit.

While most pundits expect Mayweather to extend his unblemished 47-0 record, unbeaten Hatfield boxer Billy Joe Saunders is tipping the PacMan to win the fight.

He showed his support for Pacquiao today on Twitter, even predicting the Filipino could win the bout in the first round.

British, Commonwealth and WBO Inter champion Billy Saunders tweeted: “Fight night come on the pac man ! May be 1 round tonight”
