FROM ESPNThe proposed date is March 13, although there is a chance it could move to May 1, sources said. Mayweather, according to a source close to him, is OK with either date.Pacquiao and Mayweather have fought recent bouts at catch weights. However if they complete their deal, the bout would be contested at 147 pounds, the maximum for a welterweight fight, a source said.

A contract hasn't been signed, Mayweather has simply agreed to a set of terms for the fight: 147lbs, and March 13th dateslashMANILA, Philippines - There’s only one fight Manny Pacquiao is looking at right now, and that’s the one in the political arena.So, unless Bob Arum offers him the moon, Pacquiao is no longer inclined to fight in March or May as earlier expected.Pacquiao’s lawyer, Franklin Gacal, yesterday told The STAR that the reigning pound-for-pound champion has come to a decision the other night that his next fight will come after the May 10 elections.“As of last night, Manny said he doesn’t want to fight in April or even May. There will be no fight. Maybe it will come after the elections,” said Gacal.

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather JR Agree to Fight in March 2010By Geno McGahee-December 4, 2009RSR got word from a reliable source that the super bout that the world is demanding will take place in March of 2010. The teams are currently working out the specifics but have tentatively agreed to a showdown early next year, which shouldn’t be a surprise to any boxing fan.What other fight does either man have that the boxing public would want? Floyd Mayweather, JR., could take on the winner of Shane Mosley-Andre Berto, but it will not attract the masses and will not settle the score. The people are divided and even the biggest fans of each fighter are not certain of who will come out victorious.There are arguments to be made on each side. You have Floyd’s defensive genius, timing, underrated power, and ability to adapt versus Manny’s speed, crushing power, timing, and ability to adapt. Both men have found ways to win and have not suffered defeats, ever, in Floyd’s case, and hardly ever in Manny’s. The losses to Pacquiao, outside of the decision defeat to Erik Morales (which was avenged twice by knockout), were early on in his career and cannot be considered when going into this showdown.Even when you point to the defeat at the hands of Erik Morales, you have to admit that Pacquiao is a much better fighter now then he was at that point. He is more developed and more dangerous. His confidence is through the roof after his three straight knockout wins over popular and established warriors: Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, and Miguel Cotto.Floyd needs this fight with Manny more than the other way around. There have been several instances throughout the career where Floyd took the easier money and elected not to face off against an opponent the people hoped he would. Antonio “Hands of Plaster” Margarito comes to mind. You cannot fault him for being a great businessman, but there is some sketchiness when you analyze the opponents he chose and when he chose to fight them.Even his last opponent, Juan Manuel Marquez, was a safe and smart choice for his return. Marquez nearly beat Manny Pacquiao on two occasions, and since Floyd is always under the threat of the Filipino, he perhaps thought a dominant win over Marquez would silence the people. It hasn’t. Marquez had nearly zero chance of upsetting Floyd due to his size and style. Marquez had to be the aggressor, which is something that he is not comfortable doing and his weaknesses in that department were exploited quite nicely by Mayweather.Mayweather made a point in that fight that he did better against Marquez, but the same can be said about Manny and his performances against De La Hoya and Hatton. He destroyed them both as Floyd struggled at times. What does all this mean?Nothing.Styles make fights and the style match up between Manny and Floyd seems perfect on paper. You have the aggressive and quick Pacquiao, trying to find a way in and you have Floyd, trying to counterpunch the quickest fighter he has ever faced. Considering that Zab Judah beat him to the punch on several occasions bodes well for Pacquiao, but Floyd is a better boxer than Marquez and has a lot more savvy…this is why this bout is so intriguing. Enjoy the fight, but don’t put too much money on it. It looks like a pick’em to me.There are so many things that can be examined going into this fight and they will be. Because the fans are cut down the middle, both siding with their fighter to win the bout, and both citing reasons, publications will turn over every stone to try to predict an outcome.What is promising for Pacquiao’s fans is his ability to put punches together in combinations and from different angles. Floyd loves fighting guys like Arturo Gatti and Carlos Baldomir, men that throw one or two punches at a time and they come at a snail’s pace. Pacquiao is a speed demon and it is debatable if Floyd can dodge them all. It is possible that Floyd’s counters won’t be fast enough and that he will be hit while trying to hit return fire.A weak chin can be put to rest too. Manny Pacquiao took shots from a very strong and powerful Miguel Cotto and didn’t flinch. He won’t drop on one punch from Mayweather, but Mayweather doesn’t just throw one punch either. He will launch in with that left hook, which is a punch that Manny is open for. Unfortunately for the Pacman, that is Floyd’s best punch and if it lands, it could send him into a series of punches by “Money Mayweather.”The best piece of evidence supporting the Floyd fans and their contention that he will win is the Miguel Cotto fight. It is Manny’s most recent outing and although he won it in spectacular and dominating fashion, there is something in there that should be pointed out.In the first round, Cotto controlled Manny and easily won the round. He used his jab and a tight defense to keep the bout under control, but he did little after that. Did Manny adjust that well or did Cotto lose focus? Floyd never loses focus and if he gets control, he will be able to maintain it much better than Cotto.A toss up. A “pick’em.” Whatever way you cut it, this is the bout that the public wants to see. The two very best in the sport going head to head in their primes. I, like all of you cannot wait and am happy to say with some confidence that it is close to be delivered.A March showdown between Floyd and Manny will begin 2010 with a bang. The biggest fight in probably 10 years of boxing will take place for all the pound for pound marbles. The momentum is with Pacquiao, but he has never faced a puzzle like Mayweather. This is the type of fight that you would hope would reinstate the 15 round limit. It is a classic showdown, much like Thomas Hearns – Sugar Ray Leonard and should be treated as such.

Manny Pacquiao's promoters say his prospective bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr has been abandoned after mediation talks failed to resolve differences over drug testing.The bout, likely to have been for the biggest purse in boxing history, was slated for 13 March at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, but Top Rank said it could not reach an agreement with Golden Boy Promotions, which represented Mayweather in the negotiations, after nine hours of talks on Tuesday and further discussions yesterday.Although both sides were prevented from publicly airing the specifics of the dispute, Mayweather apparently balked at a compromise over the stringent drug-testing requirements his camp had insisted upon."I knew this was going to happen," said a weary Bob Arum, Pacquiao's promoter. "You had to play it out."Golden Boy's chief executive, Richard Schaefer, and Mayweather's adviser Leonard Ellerbe did not respond to requests to elaborate.The promoters went into the lengthy mediation process on Tuesday. Both sides claimed every other detail for the fight had been decided but Mayweather had demanded random blood testing in addition to unlimited urine testing, with Pacquiao unwilling to agree to the stipulation.The fighters' representatives apparently thought they had a compromise after the mediation and were expected to announce the bout formally yesterday – but subsequent discussions with Mayweather during the day led Top Rank to announce the fight had been cancelled.Arum was left fuming by Mayweather, who fought under Top Rank promotion for several years. "I've been saying this for years: he's a psychological coward who doesn't want to fight anybody who has a chance of beating him," he said. "He walked away from a rematch with Oscar [De La Hoya] that would have paid him a fortune because De La Hoya held him close in the first fight [in May 2007]."After stellar pay-per-view numbers from their previous fights, both Pacquiao and Mayweather stood to make more than £16m from the welterweight bout. Mayweather returned to the ring after a 21-month absence in September with a victory over Juan Manuel Márquez, while Pacquiao defeated Miguel Cotto in November for his 13th victory in succession since 2005.Mayweather initially appeared eager to fight Pacquiao in a bout between two contenders for the title of pound-for-pound champion of the world. Both fighters quickly agreed to the initial points of a deal, with the fight scheduled for March so it would not interfere with Pacquiao's run for political office in the Philippines.But Schaefer then infuriated Top Rank by refusing to travel to a meeting with the Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, who offered to pay lavishly to hold the fight in the NFL team's new stadium. Schaefer's actions, apparently at Mayweather's behest, meant the fight went to the MGM Grand in Mayweather's adopted home town.After Mayweather went public with his requests for drug testing that went beyond the standards of the Nevada Athletic Commission, Pacquiao filed a lawsuit last week alleging Mayweather and his camp had defamed him by accusing him of using performance-enhancing drugs. That led to the talks, which apparently produced a solution acceptable to everybody except Mayweather, according to Arum.Arum said there's "no chance ever of salvaging it for March, no chance for it ever to happen"."No deal was reached and Manny is moving on," the communications expert Fred Sternburg said on behalf of Arum. He plans to propose a mid-March bout with the WBA super-welterweight champion, Yuri Foreman, to Pacquiao, who could become a champion in his eighth weight class.http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2010/jan/07/manny-pacquiao-floyd-mayweather-cancelled

they will both remember this moment for the rest of their lives, and look back when they are 50/60 and think "Why didn't I take the fight?"..I know everyone says they are rich and have great legacies as it is - but this would have been a chance to change history and very few people get that opportunity.when your older and the money and wealth is a staple in your life - i think you begin to look deeper into yourself and realise all the missed opportunities and chances that you had.maybe the fight will happen one day, but as ive always said - its gonna be when both of them are shot and want a quick payday.. boxing is a sad sport sometimes

What a joke, they can both f*ck off with those proposed next fights.Mayweather comes off looking worse even though I think the majority of the blame is with Pac.

This right here is why Floyd is always at a loss going into any negotiation cos his opponents know if they break down he will always get blamed.At the end of the day had Pac and his team not backtracked on something they originally agreed to the fight would be on.

Exactly so how is it that Pac said he'd take the test and then backed out yet Mayweather still gets the blame?We both know if it was the other way around Mayweather would be getting crucified. Arum was the one talking about walking away from early as well which wasn't surprising considering he didn't want the fight made in the 1st place.I hope the fight gets made at a later date anyway.

After the pac/cotto fight roach/pac called out mayweatherin the press conference arum said he wanted the fight to happen and told mayweather to get in touch with him asap.Pac didnt back out of sh*t, he didnt want the test as it might affect his performance and he's a p*ssy when it comes to needles. who would want to go through that before the biggest fight of your career?.so the best thing to do is to do it right after the fight of course :D lol @ demanding olympic style testing, any bitch move.funny how the last few days where negotiations are going on between his fight with pac ( a BIG payday and a fight that would sh*t all over MMA-who he also loves to chat sh*t about) he's in the club tryna start beef with rick ross.its safe to say most of the blame goes to him.biggest prick./

To me this isn't about Floyd or Pac, its just a situation and if it were the other way round I'd be saying the same thing but in favour of Pac but I doubt you 'd be siding with Floyd.
