The fight of the century, the movie of the year and an overload of infographics

May 7, 2015

Two major themes dominate today’s selection of print infographics published recently by newspapers and magazines worldwide, and both of them quite “light”, in comparison to all the disasters and plane crashes that we’ve seen in the past few editions of this weekly column.

First, the blockbuster debut of the second film of Marvel’s Avengers, that received lots of positive reviews and has grossed over $677 million worldwide so far. In case you don’t know, Two sequels, Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, are scheduled to be released on May 4, 2018, and May 3, 2019, respectively.

And the second highlighted subject belongs to Sports category, and it goes to the fight between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, billed as The Fight of the Century. The fight was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Mayweather won by points .

But of course, you’ll see several other topics addressed in the infographics that made our selection below:
