Floyd “Money” Mayweather vs. Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao fight is finally happening on May 2nd of next year, that’s of course if Manny agrees to Mayweather’s terms and conditions. The problem is we’ve heard this countless times before and there are no guarantees that this fight would ever happen. The very first negotiation was back on December 5th, 2009 and they were suppose to fight on March that following year, but then Pacquiao denied of ever signing any contract to fight Mayweather. There had been small conditions like who gets the first choice of the locker room and who gets introduced first, where they couldn’t come into terms with.
Then reported second negotiations on May 13, 2010, announced that Manny Pacquiao would possibly fight Mayweather, but one of Mayweather’s conditions was Pacquiao taking the random blood testing prior to the fight. The Boxing world speculated that Mayweather was just trying to avoid the fight and that he was making excuses so he could avoid fighting Manny. Obviously the fight was postponed yet again. Years has gone by and negotiations after negotiations and yet we’re still unclear weather the fight is ever going to happen.
Mayweather was interviewed on Showtime and he was asked if He wants to fight Manny Pacquiao. His response was.
“Oh absolutely absolutely, I would love to fight manny pacquiao, uhm we’re trying to make the fight happen, uhm years ago. Uhm we had problems with random blood and urine testing. Ah like I said, I just want to be on an even playing field. Uhm, Now he’s in a very tight situation, Uhm he’s lost to Marquez , He’s lost to Brandley, Uhm pay-per-view numbers are down very very– Extremely low. So He’s Desperate, Uhm I’ve b-been wanting that fight for a long time ago and I’m just waiting on them. Hopefully, of course we have to make the fight happen on Showtime pay-per-view Showtime pay-per-view boxing is #1 and will ramain #1. Im the man I’m here to stay.”
