The boxing match that everyone wants to see is again in jeopardy of not happening. According to Top Rank promoter Bob Arum who represents Pacquiao, the deadline for an agreement has passed but the Mayweather camp has not committed to the fight.
Talks about a Pacquiao-Mayweather match began last year, with Pacquiao refusing to undergo Olympic style blood tests just a few days leading to the fight. Negotiations failed and both boxers opted to fight mismatched opponents. Pacquiao dominated a barely punching Joshua Clottey while Mayweather beat an undersized Juan Manuel Marquez.
Talks between Top Rank representing Pacquiao and Golden Boy Promotions for Mayweather were made public last time. This time around they are keeping negotiations behind closed doors but there are hints that point out to Mayweather again holding up this fight from ever taking place.
If the fight never happens again, both parties will be held responsible by the very fans that want to see the match. Is Mayweather coming up with demands just to make this fight impossible to happen? If Team Pacquiao agrees to take a huge pay cut just to fight Mayweather, what other unreasonable demand can “Money” ask for?
