As the hype machine is ramping up for next month’s Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao pay per view megafight in Las Vegas, the first official ad has been filmed and has begun to air. The commercial was filmed in March with both fighters present and it certainly gives the message that the Mayweather and Pacquiao are ready to go.

The fight will be held on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
