| by Daniel Yancelson

Floyd Mayweather is preparing for the "fight of the century" against Manny Pacquiao, in a boxing match that may produce $500 million in revenue.

Mayweather continues to work out and train for the May 2 fight at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand, against what he called a “solid,” but “reckless” competitor.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

The undefeated American plans on making Pacquiao adjust his strategy away from his strengths.

“A lot of guys do a lot of things wrong, but they are still successful,” Mayweather said. "So I want to know what he does right, so I can take that away from him, so I can take that arsenal away from him."

“What I do, when I'm facing a guy, whatever he does good, I take that away from him, so he has to resort to doing something different. I just want to look good for myself. I want to look very impressive. I'm pretty sure he's going to bring his A-game, and it's all about excitement.”

That excitement is expected to smash box office and pay-per-view records. Promoters expect to make $75 million just on ticket sales, while they anticipate more than $300 million from the pay-per-view audience.

What millions will watch is a fight in the making of over five years and Mayweather feels confident he can stay undefeated despite Pacquiao being a tough opponent.

“He's a solid competitor, but very reckless, and he makes a lot of mistakes,” Mayweather said.

“But he's been successful. Remember what I said — you've got guys that make a lot of mistakes but still are successful.”
