HBO, Showtime agree on Pacman-Mayweather fight

By Ronnie Nathanielsz | Sep. 10, 2014 at 12:01am



TOP Rank promoter Bob Arum revealed that the two leading sports networks—HBO and Showtime—have reached an agreement to make a Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight, happen.

One of the problems was getting the two cable networks together since HBO Sports is linked to Pacquiao and Showtime has a six-fight, $200-million deal with Mayweather. Both men have fights coming up. Mayweather takes on Marcos Maidana in a rematch on Sunday (Manila time), while Pacquiao will put his World Boxing Organization welterweight title on the line in a catch-weight bout at 144 pounds, with undefeated WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri at the Cotai Arena in Macau on Nov. 22.

Pacquiao said that a fight with Mayweather “is the fight fans want in their hearts” and that he is ready to face the undefeated pound for pound No.1.

Hmm, not much given on the particulars between the networks. Just that Arum has them agreeing on a potential fight. Good move by Arum, something that Haymon can never do.

I can see it now. 24/7 on HBO following Manny. All Access on SHO following Floyd. It would be f*ckin' glorious. Would be, but in all likelihood won't be. :(
