Lubbock Supermarket Creates Epic Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Avocado Sign
Seems like the folks at Sprouts are ready for Saturday night's big fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. The supermarket created this awesome customized avocado sign.
It's already the most bet on fight in history and it's also had its share of controversy already. Mayweather has come under fire for calling himself "TBE" -- the best ever. Mike Tyson may have something to say about that.
It took five years for this fight to happen, and both boxers are admittedly past their prime. But that hasn't let the hype get out of control for the fight.
Many are looking at it as a Good Vs. Evil, as Pacquiao is a born-again Christian and family man, while Mayweather is known for his brash and bold statements and lifestyle.
If you're planning on going out to a local sports bar to watch the fight, you should call ahead to see if they are carrying the fight. It's costly for sports bars to carry the fight, and there could be a cover charge.
For those who'd prefer to stay in and watch, the Pay-Per-View costs $89 or $99 dollars. Suddenlink customers can call (877) 694-9474, online at suddenlink.com/ppv. The fee is $89.99 for (SD) or $99.99 for a high-definition (HD). Dish customers can call (877) 347-4778 or order online.
The Countdown show starts at 5 p.m. and the fight is scheduled for 8 p.m. Central.
