Mayweather is talking negotiations with Pacquiao’s people but he warned they should not expect a purse anywhere near what Mayweather would make.
In a Showtime interview, Mayweather called for the fight to happen and proudly gave a date — May 2.
Mayweather claims Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter has been the obstacle in the way of them fighting for the past five years.
“Floyd Mayweather doesn’t dodge any opponent,” Mayweather said. “Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum is the one who’s been stopping this fight. My team has been trying to put things together and make this happen.”
Pacquiao says Mayweather’s style is boring and is ready for the showdown.
Mayweather has a flawless record (47-0, 26 KOs) and Pacquiao’s is undoubtedly impressive (57-5-2, 38 KOs), yet nearly 83 percent of boxing fans predict Pacquiao will beat Mayweather in the May 2nd fight.
