FLOYD MAYWEATHER TODAY CONFIRMED on his Shots account that he will fight Manny Pacquiao on May 2.

The news comes after months, and even years, of speculation. Fuel was added to the fire when the two superstar fighters were pictured meeting for the first time, courtside at a Miami Heat NBA game, in January.

There's no question that it's the biggest fight of the 21st century, and one of the most talked-about bouts in living memory as the defensive master Mayweather faces boxer-puncher Pacquiao.

Some believe that Pacquiao's speed will be too dangerous for a slowing "Money" Mayweather, but many think that Mayweather's boxing brain and know-how will see him to a priceless and career-defining 48th consecutive win.

Whoever wins, with confirmation that they'll finally get it on, on May 2, boxing's unanswered question will finally get a response.
