Pacman also took to social media to make the announcement and posted this to his Twitter account:

According to Laced Up Boxing, the MGM Grand (the second largest hotel in the world) has sold out already for May 2nd 2015!

Pacquiao and Mayweather have had their differences for a long time with both claiming to be better than the other. They actually only met for the first time just over a month ago at a Miami Heat game and appeared to get on well.
