Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Fight Will Happen… Finally!
Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are arguably the biggest names in boxing right now, but fans have had to wait and wait for a fight between the two that for a while seemed like it was never going to occur. It’s come very close to happening in the past, but disagreements over drug testing, purse splits, and so on have always intervened to stop it. Now, according to a recent report, the two sharks have started circling each other for real, and Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather is supposed to happen sometime later this year.
The Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather fight will come on the heels of a private meeting between the two, but according to TMZ it was probably the reported public confrontation between Pacquiao and Mayweather that sealed the deal:
“[A]fter meeting in person at the Miami Heat game earlier this week … we’re told it’s a done deal .. and the two sides will make a formal announcement in the coming days.”
Some rumors have Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather happening as early as May, but a bout later in the summer might be more likely, especially since the promotional opportunities for this long-awaited fight will be much more extensive than the average boxing match.
