Manny Pacquiao Expects An Announcement From Floyd Mayweather This Month Regarding Their Forthcoming Fight

January 14. 2015

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao

Boxer Manny Pacquiao has stated he expects a statement from rival Floyd Mayweather by the end of the month, regarding their highly anticipated fight. Speaking to the Manila Standard newspaper, Pacquiao stated, "We will make an announcement before the end of the month. I think it will happen." Pacquiao is willing to take a smaller split regarding profits, to ensure the fight happens. Mayweather has stated regarding the fight, "We are ready. Let's make it happen. May 2. Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao. Let's do it."

Amir Khan

Adding controversy to the situation is boxer Amir Khan. Mayweather and Khan have been locked in a social networking war of words for the past year. Khan recently issued a May 2015 deadline to Mayweather, stating he wants to fight him in the ring during said month, "I want to fight in May and I want the Mayweather fight, but it's not getting any closer. It's a waiting game, I've given his team five days. I need to know this week because I need to start training." However, Mayweather has shutdown the offer and deadline, stating Khan's name "holds no weight." Ouch!
