It should've happened 5 years ago.  It would've been surreal to have it in 2009 or so.

Still, a Pacman-Mayweather fight would be absolutely great for boxing even in 2015.

I have my doubts about it happening.  I mean, who wouldn't after all these years?  Also, seen enough slippage from Pacman that I'm not sure he could hold his own against Mayweather now.    Still, its something I would relish to see.

Well, turns out there was a thread about this.

There's seriously no excuse for Floyd to not make this fight. Money is there, Pac is willing to take and do whatever his camp wants them, it's really on May's ball now if this fight is going to happen or not.

I believe he's ducking.

I take all of their words with a grain of salt. Too many egos that prevents the fight from happening.

Agree.

There's Arum over May, May over Pac, Pac over May.

Too many cooks in the kitchen, really. Why can't they really just co-promote? There's SO MUCH money involved here, they can't figure that out?

Floyd is ducking Manny. Period.

I agree.

This should be an easy fight to book if he really wants this fight.

For some reasons Top Rank and Golden Boy stopped working with each other. Not just pac-may. I remember the supposed to be superfight in the bantamweight division between Mares and Donaire because of promotion disputes.

If Floyd really thinks that he can beat Manny, he would've agreed to the fight YEEEEAAARRSS ago.

But he's afraid to get a number on his loss column.

That's what I think. He keeps thinking this is just a money grab for Manny. I mean of course there's money involved, but Jesus Christ, if Floyd with still be able to earn about $50 million on a 50/50 share, BEFORE THE PPV splits, is it really a problem for him that Manny would earn the same?

Manny also draws. He filled up the Cowboy Stadium against Joshua Clottey on a boring fight. I don't get as to why he doesnt want to give him a solid split of the purse. Oh, and Manny is on the record that he's willing to take less money, and for Mayweather, he keeps pushing this reason.

It's not the money, it's that dreaded 1 on that loss column. Pacquiao is and will be his BIGGEST threat and he knows it.

For some reasons Top Rank and Golden Boy stopped working with each other. Not just pac-may. I remember the supposed to be superfight in the bantamweight division between Mares and Donaire because of promotion disputes.

I've read that Arum is in talks with CBS execs. I'm not sure how it went down. Would need to win more.

I absolutely agree with that.  Mayweather does not want a loss on his record.  This fight should have happened at least 5 years ago.  It's too bad because it would have been a great event and great for the sport.  And I think it would have improved his legacy as I'm pretty confidant he would beat Pacquiao.

SportCenter's Facebook page just posted this as a breaking news.

I can't see any links but, this is ESPN, so take it for what it's worth.

Gonna be one heckuva sports day. 

Fight should've been 5-6 years ago but still going to be something special to watch.  I'm a Pacman guy but have always felt that Mayweather was/is the better fighter.  My initial feeling is Mayweather by decision.

Both fighters still looks like they are at the top of their game. If anything, all we lost from 5 years of waiting is a little bit of hype, since Floyd didn't want to fight Manny when he was white hot and Manny went to sleep against Marquez.

But from the previous fights of both men, it looks like they still are the best of the best, pound for pound. Should be worth the wait.

I think that a few years ago, Manny would have had a great shot.  At this stage of their careers, though, I think that Mayweather is going to kill him.
