Mayweather and Pacquiao

We show you how MayPac can channel DStv to prepare for the Fight of the Century on SuperSport.

I am excited about the Fight of the Century between Mayweather and Pacquiao on Sunday 3 May on SuperSport. That’s coming from a girl who until three weeks ago had heard about Floyd Mayweather only because of his hobnobbing with Justin Bieber. It’s amazing what just a little inquisitiveness and DStv buzz can do.

Ever had those conversations where you are the most enlightened in the room and you just can’t shut up? Well, I had one of those over the weekend, giving my opinions and stats on the MayPac fight like I was a legit boxing pundit. Boy, I was on fire.

Moving on, with just three days to go, MayPac need to be initiated into the culture of DStv where there is so much more they can channel in preparation for the fight.

MayPac should watch Chopped on Saturdays at 20:00 CAT on Food Network. Chopped isn’t just any cooking show. It’s where amateur chefs get chopped if they don’t make the cut. Yes, it’s a little brutal but that’s the kind of competitive energy that MayPac need to adopt.



Every boxer needs to eat healthy, pack up all those muscles where they all need to be – the biceps, triceps, the abs. And who better to serve healthy sumptuous meals than the famous Guy Fieri. Therefore MayPac should watch Diners, Drive-Ins and Drives on Thursdays at 22:00 CAT on Food Network.



When you mess up real bad and you need an ‘off the books’ bail out, Better Call Saul. Saul Goodman is the kind of man we all want in our corner. And we need MayPac to be their best, both in body and mind come Sunday. If there is anything that might be a hindrance, Saul can fix it ASAP. Better Call Saul airs on Wednesday at 21:00 on M-Net Edge, also available on DStv Now, which is available for download with Android or iOS.



But even Saul gets busy sometimes, which is why MayPac should also have Olivia Pope’s number somewhere in their directory. If they are in doubt about her capabilities, they better watch The Fixer, Thursdays at 19:30 on M-Net, also available on DStv Now.



A good laugh can boost a fighter’s spirit. MayPac need some top-notch DStv comedy to laugh off all the tension before they meet for the grand fight. Mayweather should watch The Real Husbands of Hollywood on Wednesdays at 19:50 CAT on BET. While Pac looks like the kind of guy who’d enjoy The Big Bang Theory, Wednesdays at 19:00 on Comedy Central.



One more thing that MayPac should never take for granted; you are not a full DStv member until you’ve got DStv Now, available to Premium subscribers. Check it out for yourself.

Don't miss the Fight of the Century between Mayweather and Pacquiao, Sunday 3 May at 4:00 on SuperSport.
