Mayweather v Pacquiao: The Alternative Tale of the Tape

| 30.04.2015

The hours are rapidly counting down to one of the most eagerly anticipated boxing events the world has ever seen.

Coverage of Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao’s battle has been incessant, leaving the modern world of 24-hour news struggling for new titbits to report on.

After the third, fourth or fifth time the scribes at news.ladbrokes saw a tale of the tape comparing the man called Money and the Nation’s Fist, we hatched a plan to devise something a bit different.

Yes, height, reach and knockout numbers are important to analyse how a fight may pan out, but do they raise a smile?

So here, ahead of the most talked about fight on the planet, is Ladbrokes’ Alternative Tale of the Tape, complete with sit-up comparisons and snack habits to really help you decide whether the 1/2-rated Mayweather or 15/8-outsider Pacquiao will prevail:
