Mayweather & Pacquiao: It's On! (Almost)

The fight all boxing fans are waiting for, Mayweather & Pacquiao, is allllmost ready to happen.

Top boxing promoter Bob Arum just flew out to the Phillipines with contract in hand, hoping to nail Manny down for the fight, which could break records for ticket sales and pay-per-view sales. Mayweather issaid to be on board already, buy Manny Pacquiao is still on the fance, and believes he should ge a 60-40 split instead of the expected 50-50, because he's done better than Roger Mayweather in his last pay-per-view events. They are both such big stars though, it's hard to say one is a bigger draw than the other. One way or another I hope this fight actually happens!

Promoter Bob Arum arrived in the Philippines and expected to start face-to-face talks Wednesday with Manny Pacquiao to try to reach terms for a mega-fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Despite reports Tuesday that Mayweather agreed to terms and that a Pacquiao fight was virtually set, Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach cautioned Wednesday that that idea was premature because the Filipino star hadn't reviewed any contract terms.
