It’s a fight. I have just read this in

It’s a fight.

I have just read this in a news article:
Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally step into the ring on Saturday May 2 in Las Vegas – the home of boxing. The doors will open at the venue at 2pm local time, with the first bout scheduled at 3pm. The main event will start five hours later circa 8pm.

Las Vegas is eight hours behind the United Kingdom which means Mayweather vs Pacquiao will not begin in this country until around 4am on Sunday at UK time.

Manny Pacquiao ploughed a familiar furrow by invoking his faith: Everything I have accomplished, God has given me this strength. I used to sleep in the street, hungry, and I cannot imagine that the Lord raised me to this level of life.

Floyd Mayweather also attempted to stay humble:

(It is) the biggest fight in boxing history and I’m a part of it so that’s a great thing. I’m just truly, truly blessed to be where I’m at. I feel good, I feel strong and I’ll see you guys Saturday. You guys came out here to see excitement, to see a great event and I think that’s what both competitors bring to the table – excitement.

Are you going to watch it?
Who will win?
The man with faith or the man with excitement?

Fight the good fight with all thy might
Christ is thy strength and Christ thy Right …. The words of hymn writer John Monsell.

2 Timothy 4:7 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

I have engaged in conflict chained to this Roman soldier.
I have never quit.
I have never slackened in my commitment to Christ.
I have journeyed far and wide to tell others of Him.
I know what it is to conquer against the odds.
I have stayed the course.

What are you facing today?
The biggest fight ever?
Who will win?
