It is being called the fight of the century. Today boxing fans are expecting to see the largest-grossing fight in history, with the biggest purse, the greatest pay-per-view buys and highest ticket prices.

It may be the one of the most significant athletic events in the last 50 years. The Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao bout in Las Vegas is a big deal.

Why is this the biggest fight ever? Two grown macho men fighting over pretty purses, while other men place bets on the outcome of the boxing match.

Some say it's not even close, but here are some numbers that beg to differ. Mayweather, 38, with a 47-0 record, will make around $200 million for the big fight. Pacquiao will make less, but still nearly $100 million.

And for whomever wins, the Million-Dollar Belt with gold and 3,000 emeralds is waiting.
