Pacquiao vs Mayweather Super-Fight Highest paid boxing deal Ever!

Manny Pacquiaoby James Slater – It’s still a little too early to begin the celebrations, but for the optimists out there, Pacquiao Vs. Mayweather – the super-fight the entire boxing world wants to see – is tantalizingly close to being made. This is the word being reported on a number of top boxing web sites and news outlets (I read the latest on Sky Sports’ web site), as apparently, “Pac-Man” has agreed to face “Money” on March 13th of next year.

According to the Sky Sports News article, Pacquiao’s advisor, Michael Koncz, told of how promoter Bob Arum presented the Filipino legend with a proposal at a breakfast this Friday whilst visiting Pacquiao in The Philippines..

“The requests of Manny were so realistic that Arum doesn’t feel it’s a problem and it’s pretty much a done deal,” Koncz told Sky Sports.

There are still a few details to be ironed out, but the fight many predicted would be an absolute nightmare to make is within reach already. Needles to say, if the mega-fight does go ahead, it will be a massive boost for boxing, and a fight that will bring in millions of dollars.

Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach also spoke to Sky Sports News about the way negotiations have been looking good.

“We talked to Arum and he had the March [13th] date and May 1st available,” Roach said. “Manny chose the earlier date because of the elections in the Philippines, and I can’t wait to get started. It will be the biggest fight of all time, the biggest pay-per-view event of all time and my main sparring partner [for Manny] will be Amir Khan.”

Did I mention there are still a few details to be ironed out? According to Freddie, though he feels the negotiations can and will be worked out okay, one such item is the weight the fight will take place at.

“There’s always negotiations, like he [Mayweather Junior] wants ten-ounce gloves and we want eight-ounce, stuff like that.” Freddie continued. “The weight he wants [the fight to take place at] is 154-pounds, we want 147, so there’s some issues but I think it can be solved.”

Typical Floyd Mayweather; wanting the fight to take place at light-middleweight. No way would the man who turned pro down at a stick-like 106-pound agree to that. Maybe a compromise will be made, and Pacquiao will agree to another catch-weight fight, at, say, 150-pounds? Ideally, though, the fight should be a legitimate welterweight clash – as neither guy has any problems making 147. Hopefully, as Roach says, these details can be worked out.

It really does seem hard to believe that the monstrously huge fight that will pit pound-for-pound king Vs. pound-for-pound king could happen in just over three months. But, when two fighters are full of equal desire to take a fight (as is the case here it seems), any match-up can be made.

The hype for this one will sure be something. And as far as Manny’s political goals are concerned; if he beats Mayweather, especially by KO, he could darn near run for emperor of his country!
