The fight we’ve anticipated since 2009 might come sooner rather than later, according to ESPN reporter Dan Rafael.
We’ve all been interested in seeing two famous boxers, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Many Pacquiao fight it out in the boxing ring.
The two champions were seen negotiating at an NBA game, leading to the belief that the fight could take place on May 2.
According to the Associated Press, Pacquiao clarified, “we did meet and chat but I don’t want to say what we discussed.”
This has led to questions as to whether the two are trying to settle negotiations to launch the match between each other in May, according to Rafael.
Pacquiao, who holds a boxing record of 57-5-2, & 38 KO’s, and Mayweather, 47-0, & 26 KO’s, have discussed meeting in the ring since the past in 2009-2010.
However, these two athletes couldn’t come to an agreement as to how to handle drug testing for the match, which is why it never came to fruition, according to ESPN.
Rafael states that the drug testing protocol has been agreed upon by both sides presently in 2015.
This has brought up controversy as to the balking to finalize the decision.
Pacquiao has offered to agree with any deal
of from Mayweather by the end of January, and no later.
The decision seems to rest with Mayweather, and Pacquio seems to have a sense of urgency.
If Mayweather and Pacquiao don’t meet an agreement, Pacquiao will fight Amir Khan in May, according to ESPN.
