Ooredoo Qatar to screen Mayweather vs. Pacquiao ‘Fight of the Century’

We’ve received dozens of inquiries about how Qatar residents can tune into tonight’s “Fight of the Century” between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

The boxers will face off in Las Vegas in the early morning, Qatar time. Speaking to Doha News, an Ooredoo spokesman said this weekend that the telecom provider has just secured the rights to screen the fight.

Those with Mozaic can watch the match live on Pay per View Channel 510 for QR125, with the pre-show starting at 4am Doha time tomorrow (Sunday, May 3). He added that replays would be aired at 10am, 3pm and 7pm.

There don’t appear to be many other options for Qatar residents who wish to tune into the match. Online, the National is live-blogging the event here.

At least one business in Doha is planning to screen the boxing match, but Eve Events Catering and Services said its venue is now completely booked.

And BeinSports told Doha News this morning that the channel does not have the rights to broadcast the fight.

In a light-hearted story last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Pacquiao appeared to have more support in Qatar than Mayweather based on the number of “likes” each fighter has accumulated on their respective Facebook pages.

How do you plan to watch? Thoughts?

Unless Pacquiao wins by KO, Mayweather will win this fight on points because it is happening in Las Vegas where the judges are always biased towards American fighters.
In a fair fight, Mayweather doesn’t stand a chance.

If you would have seen it you would now say Pacquiao didn’t have a chance. His arms were too short.

There are plenty of Mobil apps around so you can watch it at work in the morning whilst at work!

For what it’s worth I think it will go the full 12 rounds but floyd is just too good.

If there is anyone from Ooredoo who reads this, please confirm that this is true! Will the PPV be on Channel 510? If that’s the case up to now Channel 510 (TFC PPV) is not available on Mozaic? Please advise as a lot of people need a clear answer.

Where is the fight being presented in a public area?

I watched it online. It seems they didn’t want to hurt each other. Quite boring and definitely NOT the ‘fight of the century’. I’d rather give that title to the ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ when Mohammed Ali regained his title after being stripped of it for refusing to join the army during the Vietnam War.

@danielschriefer:disqus .It’s not the length of arms or body built, it’s how they played. Am not a boxing analyst though,just a fan of the People’s champ. The match showed Mayweather in her running skills. I like Mayweather as a boyfriend, he hugs when he fights lol!
