Reid Touts Upcoming Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight

Ahead of a marquee fight Saturday night between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, Minority Leader Harry Reid talked up the fight on the Senate floor Thursday.

Reid, a former amateur middleweight boxer, said the fight would be a “stunning athletic event.”

“I’m really excited about this unforgettable fight,” Reid said. “There’s nothing like a championship fight … These fights catch the enthusiasm of sports fans all over the world. The eagerness that I have of watching this fight goes far beyond the sport of boxing or the spectacle of a marquee matchup: I’m thrilled for Nevada. This fight will inject hundreds of millions of dollars into the state’s economy.”
