Boxing champ Evander Holyfield spoke with The E.W. Scripps Company's KTNV recently about the upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao on May 2 at the MGM Grand.

The station asked Holyfield if he believed that the match-up was truly the Fight of the Century and who he thought would win.

He was also asked about the infamous ear-biting incident that happened in his fight against Mike Tyson. Holyfield talked about Mayweather and Pacquiao's fighting styles and how he felt when he would get in the ring.

Holyfield wouldn't say for whom he was rooting, but said he is hoping for a fair fight.

Holyfield has teamed up with eBay and Charity Vision to auction off two seats next to him at the big fight. The winner will also receive two nights at the MGM Grand hotel-casino, airline tickets and car service. 

Mayweather conducted a phone conference last week in which he answered questions for the media. Watch the video below to hear what he said about the growing excitement leading up to the fight.
