Floyd Mayweather: Manny Pacquiao Fight Details Not Signed Off On Yet


Boxing fans looking forward to one of the biggest fights of all time should hold their horses, Floyd Mayweather says.

Reports surfaced Sunday that Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao had agreed to the framework for a May fight in Las Vegas. According to the report from The Telegraph, Pacquiao already signed off on the details and all that was needed was for Mayweather to sign the contract.

However, Mayweather said Sunday at the NBA All-Star Game that nothing is official just yet, but he’s hopeful something will be worked out soon.

“No, that’s not true,” Mayweather told TNT via ESPN.com after being asked about the reports that the two sides came to terms. “Uhm, I haven’t signed yet, and he hasn’t signed yet, you know.

“It’s just been speculations and rumors. But hopefully we can make the fight happen.”

It certainly would make sense for both sides to make the fight happen. According to the Sunday report, the bout would be the most profitable in boxing history bringing in roughly $250 million.
