Manny Pacquiao Was Once Favored to Beat Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Since announcing their intention to fight one another last year, the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. bout has always listed Mayweather as the favorite….well, almost.   

We all know how this has transpired over the past two years but odds have always been available at a handful of bookmakers on the fight regardless, with Mayweather always listed as the favorite, no matter how slight.

That actually wasn’t always the case.  Pacquiao initially opened as the 8 to 5 favorite at Stations Casinos in Las Vegas back in 2009. 

Pacquiao has always gotten the most action, especially with the Asian community backing the Filipino Congressman in full force.  This has prompted the line to move close to even. 

….The latest fight odds for David Haye v Wladimir Klitschko had the Ukrainian Klitschko a 4/7 favorite vs. Haye at 11/8.  This fight goes off July 2 in the United Kingdom.
