Floyd Mayweather denies fight is set with Manny Pacquiao at NBA-All Star

Floyd Mayweather Jr. disappointed the entire boxing world when he denied that his fight with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is set and agreed upon during the NBA-All Star game at Madison Square Garden, New York.

It was earlier reported that the fight has been set and that the camp of Mayweather would be the one to announce. Everybody expected that Mayweather would be confirming the reports that every issues were settled.

Mayweather was interviewed by TNT’s David Aldridge and the American boxer said that reports of deal being signed and only his signature is needed is premature.

“There’s a report $250 million, it’s been set. You and Pac. Has it been set, and have you signed it?” Aldridge asked.

“That’s not true. I haven’t signed yet, and he hasn’t signed yet,” Mayweather said. “It’s just been speculations and rumors. But hopefully we can make the fight happen.”

Millions anticipated that the super fight would be announced during the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 but nothing happened. For the second big sporting events, Mayweather was expected to say positive about the fight but he failed to satisfy the viewers.

Mayweather even posted a video with Pacquiao last week and the undefeated boxer told Pacquiao that they “have to make this fight happen”.

While Pacquiao attending his job as a Philippine congressman in Manila, Pacquiao confirmed that he has agreed to all the demands of Mayweather, including the 60-40 split.

“We’re almost there…I have agreed to all their demands,” Pacquiao told reporters at the House of Representatives.

Pacquiao also added that he has no problem to undergo the stringent drug testing demanded by Mayweather.

“In fact, it was me who requested that the contract include a $5-million fine for anyone who would fail the drug test,” Pacquiao said.
