Thousands of fans could attend in what is expected to be a free event.

Both fighters are expected to earn up to $100m (£78.5m) from the bout, which would make it one of the richest in history.

Fans think it would be an interesting bout, pundits anticipate it would be a boring encounter, but everyone is intrigued at the prospects of an upset. Although bookmakers have predicted a 5-1 odd in favour of the “money man”.
