Floyd Mayweather's unanimous decision win over Manny Pacquiao will premiere next Saturday, May 9, on both Showtime and HBO, at 9:00 pm EST, the traditional slot for pay-per-view fight replays.

On Showtime, the fight replay will lead into the epilogue episode of "Inside Mayweather vs Pacquiao," airing directly after the fight. HBO has a live doubleheader scheduled from Houston's Minute Maid Park, with Canelo Alvarez facing James Kirkland in the main event. The live fights will air immediately following the Mayweather-Pacquiao replay.

Mayweather improved to 48-0 (26 KO) with a convincing 12-round decision win over Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KO) in a fight that likely lived up to the sort of action that most diehard fight fans were expecting, but probably wasn't a big hit for casual audiences buying this fight who fully bought into the hype of a potential toe-to-toe bout.

We'll have much more coming on Mayweather vs Pacquiao over the next few days.
