The perceived hard part is over, right?
The fight of the decade, Manny Pacquiao versus Floyd Mayweather, has been talked about and debated for years. Is Manny Pacquiao scared to fight Floyd? Is Floyd willing to step into the ring with a fighter whose value and rep has significantly diminished since he first broke onto the scene? Is Floyd deflecting all of the media scrutiny in Pacquiao’s direction because he’s the one that truly doesn’t want to fight him? Questions upon questions upon questions, very few of which have been answered. Well, one of them has reportedly been answered in a pretty big way.
Boxing promoter Bob Arum–who has been there at every twist and turn of the Pacquiao/Mayweather rumor mill–reportedly told Yahoo! Sports–that Manny Pacquiao has agreed to the terms of a May 2nd fight with Floyd Mayweather. Multiple sources have told Yahoo! Sports that a deal involving a May 2nd fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao was imminent, and that there was a purse that favored Mayweather by a 60/40 count. Arum however, has alleged that Pacquiao is all in.
I want to get some movement here, with bringing Mayweather to the table so we can go out and get everything signed and get the networks together and get the thing finished.
Your move (allegedly), Floyd.
