Weight no problem for Floyd

World Boxing Council rules demand weight checks 30 days and a week before fight night to ensure boxers get down to the limit gradually and safely.

And the organisation, whose welterweight belt is one of three up for grabs live on Sky Sports Box Office on May 2, posted a picture on its website showing Mayweather tipping the scales at 150.5lbs – well inside its 30-day stipulation.

The unbeaten American has won world titles at five different weights – from super-feather to light-middle – while Pacquiao is an eight-weight world champion who won his first WBC belt at flyweight.
