May 2, 2015 THE DAY! The Mayweather and Pacquaio fight of the century, i cannot miss this fight and of course we at the newspaper cannot let this pass without a hype. My Chris Ware-inspired page is the first to come out in the series of graphics that Times of Oman is going to publish.
If you are unfamiliar with the drama behind this fight, I hope this graphic can enlighten you to the soap-opera-like of boxing. One of the reason why this is a match to watch is because it has been dragging for years with a lot of bickering, drama and suspense for both parties. It's about time this should already happen.
This comic type graphic is a timeline of the prolonged boxing negotiations.
It all started in 2007
Pacquaio, Mayweather and The Great Mills Lane
The people behind the two superstars
These people are the ones who ought to be credited for making this fight a reality. They are as important as the two superstars from the marketing hand to the boxer's trainers.
Did I miss out on anything?? Let me know. :)
