 Breaking News: Manny Pacquiao Agrees to May 5th and 50/50 Split. f!ght On? | Bleacher Report


Could the long-awaited super f!ght between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather finally be on the verge of being signed? Manny just stated on his personal website in an official statement to his fans that he will agree to f!ght in Las Vegas on May 5th, and that he is willing to do a 50/50 split for the f!ght.

Pacquiao said that the ball is now in Floyd's court. If Floyd says yes, the f!ght will be on. There seemed to be a lot of argument back and forth about the guarantees that both f!ghters would receive, but that seems to be settled. Top Rank will guarantee Pacquiao's purse and Golden Boy would likely guarantee at least a large portion of Floyd's purse.

If they don't reach an agreement in the next couple of days, it may never happen.

However, I feel that this could finally be it. I've always been optimistic that this f!ght would happen, and with this latest statement from Pacquiao I think my optimism has officially peaked.

Manny has said that he's in, and I think Floyd also truly wants this f!ght to happen. After witnessing Manny's struggles against Juan Manuel Marquez last November, Floyd now sees that perhaps Manny has slipped a bit. If there was ever a "safe" time to get into the ring against him, that time is now.

Hopefully the two sides will come to their senses and make a deal soon, probably this weekend. Top Rank's Bob Arum should reach out to Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy to arrange the matchup the fans have been waiting for.

Let's all hope this is finally it, and the odyssey that has been Mayweather and Pacquiao can come to a close.

Top Rank says May 5th date is not for Pacquiao and Mayweather





Despite reports coming from the Philippines that Manny Pacquiao has accepted the May 5th date to f!ght Floyd Mayweather Jr., Top Rank, promoter of Pacquiao, as of early Friday denied reports that the mega-f!ght has been made. Bob Arum, after spending three days with Pacquiao was en- route to Las Vegas and was expected to have a comment later today.

The next opponent for Pacquiao could be another meeting with Miguel Cotto, or a fourth f!ght with Juan Manuel Marquez

The Mayweather camp on Friday continued to call out Pacquiao. Sources have confirmed that Mayweather has chosen Canelo Alveraz to be the opponent he meets for the WBC welterweight title on May 5th from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

“It is all rumor at this point and Manny will be f!ghting in early June, not May 5th,” commented Lee Samuels of Top Rank also a spokesperson for Arum. The stipulations as to a purse, whether it be a 50-50 split and a venue also have to be arranged.

Arum has contended that Pacquiao is not avoiding Mayweather. And Pacquiao, as of late Thursday indicated that he was acceptable to the anticipated and long awaited f!ght. However, it appears that conflicting reports about the May 5th date, partly due to rumors and blog reports have everyone believing that the f!ght has been secured.

A major issue at this point to solidify the f!ght is where it would be held. Mayweather started the speculation a few months ago by securing the MGM for a May 5th date, also stating that he wanted “The Little Fella,” with obvious reference to Pacquiao.

Pacquiao has agreed to the Olympic drug testing procedures, a main obstacle that derailed the f!ght that was planned almost two years ago. Then last week, Mayweather had his 90-day jail sentence for domestic violence pushed to early June which opened up the door for more speculation that his may 5th date would be a meeting with Pacquiao.

Arum wants the f!ght to be held in a 40,000 seat venue. Mayweather has reportedly stated that he wants the f!ght to stay in Las Vegas which also has become an issue.

Adding to the fury of all the rumors is speculation that Miguel Cotto would be the opponent for Mayweather on May 5th. As of Friday, Cotto has not re-signed his deal with Arum and Top Rank. And Golden Boy Promotions, a middle man for Mayweather, has done business with Cotto in the past.

Calls to Golden Boy were not returned and Richard Schaefer, CEO, could not be reached for comment. Any negotiation with Top Rank and the Mayweather-Pacquiao f!ght from the beginning have been conducted with Schaefer.

There is more dodging in this god damn media sh*t, then there will be in the fu*king f!ght itself. If it were to happen.

If everybody would stop paying attention to this two fu*kers, the f!ght would happen.
