Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather is truly the biggest fight of this boxing generation. The world has awaited this dream becoming a reality, and it seems we are on the very edge of that happening now. According to Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum, “PAc Man” has signed off everything, and is ready to rumble:

“As far as we are concerned, we’ve negotiated all of the points, and we are all in accord. Pacquiao signed off on everything, and we are ready to rumble. I can’t say the same for the other guy, but that’s not my job. The people representing the other guy have to deliver him, and that’s what we are waiting for,” Arum told the Examiner.

“We are going to push this to the end. We’re not going to let them off of the hook. We want this fight to happen. The public wants it. It’s time to stop [email protected] around. He needs to get some cajones. Even if its a difficult fight to accept for him, he needs to take it and do the best that he can.”

According to a report on Boxingnews24, the terms from Floyd Mayweather’s camp include drug testing, each fighter having their own choice of 8-ounce gloves, and a 60/40 split of the fight’s revenue in favor of Floyd Mayweather:

“According to the Pacquiao side, everything was agreed to, including the gloves and drug testing. As far as the gloves go, each fighter would be able to select their own brand of 8-ounce gloves. Mayweather typically wears Grant gloves and Pacquiao fights in Cleto Reyes. . .The sides are so far along that they have drafted contracts, according to the Pacquiao side.”

With Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao near completion, we wait with baited breath on the official announcement!
