Manny Pacquiao Says Mayweather Camp &...

Glax0r's Photo Glax0r 08 Sep 2014


Quoted by the Mirror, Manny Pacquiao stated: "There are serious negotiations with the Mayweather camp and my promoter."


Arum quoted by the same publication, stated: "Both [TV] networks want this to happen. All signs seem to point to a first fight early next year." He added, "A second fight in the autumn would provide a different cash split because the winner of the first would claim the higher percentage. As each of them believes he would win, that provides an extra incentive."

This crap needs to happen, so the rest of Boxing can enjoy the toilet spotlight.

Basically, it has been too long and has overshadowed the sport longer than any fight should have.  I'm thinking about the future of the sport, and to get there, we need to deal with the past first... even if it has become the lame joke that it is.

Yup, boxing will continue to be constipated until this massive dump of a fight finally passes. So massive is this steamy log that we might need to flush twice...and maybe even a third time. I hope it's a decisive one and done.

Lots still has to fall in place, of course. Not to mention upcoming opponents. Can't help but feel that this is part-promotional tactic for their next fights, too.

Still, I believe this is the first time in over two years that either side has acknowledged speaking with each other.

I agree.  Like I said, boxing can't move forward until this fight happens.  It's not small enough for fans to forget, even at this point.

If this is true, making contact with the other party is a good indication that you really want the fight. Name dropping in the media, not so much.

Hopefully this is the surprise floyd was talking about

Won't happen. Floyd will wait to see how Pac looks against Algierie. If he looks great, Floyd won't sign. No way.
