LAS VEGAS — The people who paid $99.95 to watch at home had no clue.
Neither did those spending $40,000 or more for a ringside seat Saturday night in Las Vegas.
And, surely, the bettor who wagered $500,000 at the MGM Grand sports book on Manny Pacquiao to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. wasn’t in the loop.
They all thought they were getting the Fight of the Century. Two fighters who, if not in their prime, were at least in peak condition for the fight of their lives.
