Mayweather vs Pacquiao: Another official fight poster for May 2 showdown

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao have another official fight poster for their May 2 bout. Exciting!

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Folks, this is a fight so big it needs several different official posters. This time, we've got HBO's version. CHECK IT OUT!

The first poster art we saw came from Mayweather Promotions with the fight announcement. Then there was Showtime's official banner-style poster:

None of this stuff is quite as exciting as the fight itself, but then we are sort of limited with boxing posters in modern times. For one thing, they are mostly just for digital use, and more importantly, fighters never get together to shoot photos for a poster anymore. Perhaps because they are just for digital use and to be showcased on the walls at the proper casino. It's just sadly not a boxing poster world anymore. Not like it used to be.

That said, they're all fine. I'm not, like, hating. Hating on poster art. I've got no issue with them. A big positive is that they feature neither fire nor lightning, so that's always a plus. Someone make us an official BLH Fire and Lightning Mayweather-Pacquiao poster.
