With Mayweather involved, there's always the potential for some sort of drama today, though in all honesty, there has been little in the way of bad blood in the lead-up to this fight. Showtime tried to make something of the two fighters squaring off at a promo shoot, and their camps had a bit of a verbal altercation earlier this week, but on the whole, this has been a surprisingly tame and non-Mayweather like build. Today is the last real opportunity to bring the fireworks. Mayweather, ever the showman and businessman, surely knows this, and may make a final push for PPV buys with a spectacle at the weigh-ins.
